Catherine A. Repola, longtime western executive director of the Motion Picture Editors Guild, will succeed Ron Kutak as the top executive in the national executive director slot in November.
The guild, which operates as Iatse Local 700, made the announcement Sunday. Kutak announced recently that he’s retiring after serving more than 30 years in the position.
“The Executive Search Committee’s recommendation to hire Cathy was unanimously endorsed by our Board of Directors,” said guild president Alan Heim. “We are confident that we made an excellent choice based on her wealth of experience and long-standing commitment to the welfare of our community and the overall labor movement.”
Repola has been with the guild since 1992.
“I am both excited and honored to be given this opportunity to move our union into its next phase,” she said. “I am grateful for Ron’s mentorship; we have been a team in the true sense of the word. »
