Greenlee appointed SAG public affairs director

Former press secretary to handle communications strategy

Rafe Greenlee, a former press secretary for politicians in Texas and North Carolina, has been appointed the Screen Actors Guild’s associate director for public affairs.

Greenlee, who has degrees from Harvard and the U. of Texas School of Law, worked for SAG as a consultant on the guild’s recent deal with Saban Entertainment.

In his new position, he will be responsible for handling SAG’s communications strategy on issues ranging from media relations and educational campaigns to federal and state legislative priorities.

The guild’s communications director, Katherine Moore, said Greenlee’s addition to the staff reflects a commitment “to provide an effective voice for the policy concerns of performers.”

Greenlee joins Greg Krizman as associate director. The latter will now focus on development of SAG publications such as the “Screen Actor” and “Call Sheet” newsletters and on liaison work with SAG’s 26 offices around the country.

As a press secretary, Greenlee worked for U.S. Sen. Terry Sanford (D-N.C.), and in Texas, for Gov. Ann Richards and Lt. Gov. Bob Bullock. More recently, he was a communications associate for the political consulting firm Staton/Hughes in San Francisco.
