Jesse Hiestand, longtime spokesman for the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, has been hired as Director of Corporate Communications at FX Networks and FX Productions. He started today. The move comes after longtime FX head of communications John Solberg recently expanded his portfolio to include rebranded FX Networks FXX and FXM as well as FX Prods. This is part of a plan to staff up the ranks under him.

Prior to joining the AMPTP he worked in communications at the DGA and before that was a labor and legal writer at The Hollywood Reporter.
