The newly elected president of the Directors Guild of America is Emmy-winning “West Wing” director Thomas Schlamme, Deadline.com reports.

Schlamme was the guild’s third vice president, and co-chaired the organization’s last two film and TV contract negotiating committees, the report notes.

“Earlier this year, the guild presented him with the Robert B. Aldrich Achievement Award for extraordinary service to the DGA and its membership,” Deadline reports. “A member of the guild for nearly 40 years, he served as a member of the Western Directors Council since 2003, as a member of the Creative Rights Committee since 2001, and was a founding member of the DGA Political Action Committee’s Leadership Council.”
