Location Managers Guild taps exec director

Move helps org go pro with first appointment

The Location Managers Guild of America has named non-profit pro Brian Ross Adams as the first executive director in the guild’s 10-year history.

Appointment was announced at the LMGA’s recent bi-annual meeting.

“Since the Guild’s founding, we have been completely volunteer-driven,” said LMGA prexy Lori Balton. “However, in order to reach our strategic goals, we knew we needed to go pro and to grow the guild. Brian was the perfect candidate to make that happen.”

For the past 15 years Ross Adams has been at the helm of non-profit orgs ranging from small health foundations to national advocacy programs. “For me, this is a dream job,” he said. “The Guild is a great group of artists that really inspire me and the challenges the guild face are perfectly aligned with my skills and passion.”

LMGA promotes the interests of location pros in film, TV and commercials who find settings that fit the concepts of directors while also responding to the financial incentives requirements of producers. They handle day-to-day management of filming locations, including contract negotiations, scheduling and permit acquisition, and are the main liaisons between the public and the shooting crew.
