Directors Guild Executive Director Jay Roth to Step Down

18 January 2017 10:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jay D. Roth, the longtime national executive director of the Directors Guild of America, will retire in the late spring.

Directors Guild of America President Paris Barclay made the announcement on Wednesday.

“Jay’s entire professional career has been dedicated to representing people and helping to make their lives better — early on as a civil rights and labor lawyer, and for more than three decades, as an essential part of the DGA’s life as its greatest adviser, defender, and coach,” Barclay said.

Barclay revealed that Roth’s retirement has been under discussion for some time, but that Roth had agreed to stay on to negotiate the DGA’s master contract. The guild and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers reached a tentative deal on Dec. 23; that pact — featuring a significant gain in streaming residuals — was ratified by the national board and sent out last month for approval by the DGA’s 16,000 members. »
