Directors Guild Reorganizes Senior Staff

The Directors Guild of America has reorganized and expanded its senior staff in response to the growth of the guild, which has over 15,000 members.

DGA National Executive Director Jay D. Roth announced that Eastern Executive Director/Associate National Executive Director Russ Hollander will be relocating from New York to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2016.

Hollander will join Associate National Executive Directors Bryan Unger and David Korduner on the West Coast to focus on industry negotiations and the challenges of national and international representation of directors.

The DGA’s current master contract with producers expires on June 30, 2017. The guild will probably launch negotiations in the second half of next year.

Both Hollander and Unger will be dropping their respective Eastern and Western Executive Director titles.

The DGA also promoted Associate Eastern Executive Director Neil Dudich to Eastern Executive Director, and Danny Bush, Associate Western Executive Director, has been promoted to Western Executive Director.
