Geoff Betts Promoted to Deputy Executive Director

I am thrilled to announce that Geoff Betts has been promoted to Deputy Executive Director of the Writers Guild of America East.

Geoff started at the Guild as a Business Agent in 2007 and has served as the Director of Contract Enforcement and Credits since 2019.

In his new role, Geoff will act as the Executive Director’s head of operations, providing strategic guidance to implement the vision of the WGAE Council and ensure the work done by Guild staff across all departments serves the larger institutional goals of the union.

For the immediate future, Geoff will continue to lead the Guild’s film/television/streaming sector.

I want to thank Geoff for his years of service to the WGAE, for his diligent leadership of the film/television/streaming sector and for his remarkable and steadfast work stewarding the Guild as Interim Executive Director.

Please continue to reach out to Geoff with any questions about contracts, for help with issues that arise at work, or for any other assistance that the Guild may provide.

In solidarity,
Sam Wheeler
Executive Director
Writers Guild of America East
