DGA boosts research exec

Baron named assistant exec director

The Directors Guild of America has promoted veteran exec Joyce Baron to the post of assistant exec director of research and strategic analysis.

Baron joined the DGA in 2000 as director of research and policy analysis and has focused on issues related to collective bargaining, government and international affairs, strategic planning, communications and member services.

DGA national exec director Jay D. Roth announced the appointment Monday.

“Her work with our outside consultants was vital in developing the Guild’s understanding of the issues which will shape our industry for years to come, especially as they related to negotiations, and as part of the DGA’s senior management team, we will continue to rely on Joyce to assist us in preparation for whatever challenges may lie ahead,” he said.

Before joining the DGA, Baron worked as a TV producer and writer in health and medical programming and commercials.
