DGA Taps Fullfillment Fund’s Joan Sumpter as CFO

Fullfillment Fund executive Joan Sumpter has been chosen as the chief financial officer at the Directors Guild of America to replace Brian O’Rourke, who will retire from his position in March.

Jay D. Roth, national exec director of the DGA, made the announcement Monday.

“Brian has been an integral member of the DGA executive team for more than nine years,” said Roth. “From financial system upgrades to streamlining the Guild’s costs, Brian’s expertise has helped to support the DGA through a period of immense growth. That legacy will be carried on by Joan Sumpter, whose deep financial background and leadership across both the nonprofit and private sectors will be a valuable asset to the Guild.”

Sumpter served at the Fulfillment Fund – a nonprofit organization that helps underprivileged students achieve a college education – as VP of finance and administration. She worked in entertainment industry finance positions at Fox, MGM/UA, as well as Priority Records, Castle Rock Entertainment and New World Entertainment.

O’Rourke has been with the DGA since 2006.
