National Executive Director Greg Hessinger Departs AFTRA

March 6, 2005 

The SAG Board has voted to engage AFTRA's National Executive Director Greg Hessinger as SAG's new NED/CEO. AFTRA wishes Greg well in his new position with SAG.

Greg's understanding of AFTRA, and his commitment to its core values of democratic leadership, staff-member partnership and hands-on local representation will serve to facilitate and strengthen the continued collaboration of AFTRA and SAG on behalf of performers.

AFTRA will continue its work to build the most diverse, broad-based and socially conscious union in the Media Industries under the leadership of Acting National Executive Director Kim Roberts Hedgpeth and National President John P. Connolly.
