David named LPA executive director

A series of leadership changes that have been months in the making are slated to take place in May at Louisiana Press Association and Marketing.

Jeff McHugh David, Jr. is resigning his position as the trade association’s board president and will take over as the LPA executive director on May 13. Sam Hanna, Jr., will become the board president.

David replaces Jerry Raehal, who informed the board of directors in December of 2023 of his intent to move closer to family by the summer of 2024, and is moving to Nebraska in June.

The hiring of David was approved by the board at a January special meeting, allowing for a transition for Raehal to seek a new role and for David to start becoming more acquainted with the roles.

LPA Director Judi Terzotis said after initial review of potential candidates by the hiring committee, an “unexpected candidate put his name in the hat that is just so uniquely suited for this job. It really just stopped the entire process.”
