Actors’ Equity Association welcomes Brandon Lorenz as the union’s new national communications director effective March 6. Working closely with executive director Mary McColl, Lorenz is responsible for developing and supporting all of the union’s strategic communications plans.
Named a “Rising Star” by Campaigns & Elections magazine in 2015, Lorenz arrives at AEA with nearly 15 years of experience in journalism and campaigns. Most recently, he served as communications campaign director at the Human Rights Campaign, where his work included the 2016 election and HRC’s North Carolina campaign on behalf of Gov. Roy Cooper.
“We are thrilled to have someone with Brandon’s track record of success join the team,” said McColl in a press statement. “Brandon joins us at a critical time for the Association as we work to create and implement new communications strategies that have been set by our national council. His national and regional media relationships and his experience working on campaigns up and down the ballot will enhance our ability to organize and ensure that our outreach to members and producers will be successful.”
“I’m thrilled to join Actors’ Equity Association,” added Lorenz. “I can’t wait to get to work on behalf of all the talented and dedicated members at Equity so that everyone understands that members need to be treated fairly and fairly compensated.”
