PGA noms Gordon, Koch as co-presidents

Org leaders nominate duo to succeed Herskovitz

Leaders of the Producers Guild of America have nominated Mark Gordon and Hawk Koch to serve a two-year term as co-presidents, succeeding Marshall Herskovitz.

The PGA, which has more than 4,000 members, has begun notifying members about the org’s upcoming elections. Deadline for nominations by petition is May 6; election results will be announced June 4.

Herskovitz has served two two-year terms as the PGA prez and is barred from seeking the post again. The nominations of Gordon and Hawk came from the PGA’s Producers Council and nominating committees, which also tapped Gary Lucchesi to serve as VP for motion pictures, Hayma “Screech” Washington as VP for TV, and five candidates for treasurer — R.J. Hume, Rachel Klein, Stephen Marinaccio, Michael Palmieri and Lauren Shuler Donner.

The missive included delegate nominees for each of the three councils: producers, associate producers and new media.

It’s the first time the nominating committee has selected a pair of members to stand for election as co-prexies. If Gordon and Koch are elected, it will be the second time the guild has been headed by co-presidents. In 2001-02, following the PGA’s merger with the American Assn. of Producers, Kathleen Kennedy and Tim Gibbons served as co-prexies.

Gordon is the PGA’s VP for TV. He has extensive credits in features, such as “Saving Private Ryan” ; he also exec produces the ABC series “Grey’s Anatomy” and Lifetime’s “Army Wives.”

Koch is a member of the PGA board. Feature credits include “Blood and Chocolate,” “Frequency” and both “Wayne’s World” pics.
