Calderwood to exit Pathe

McCracken to join as deputy managing director

LONDON — Andrea Calderwood is quitting as head of production at Pathe Pictures, one of the U.K.’s three lottery film franchises, to start her own production company.

At the same time, Cameron McCracken is joining as deputy managing director. He was previously director of business affairs at British Screen.

McCracken is effectively replacing Pathe’s current head of corporate and business affairs, Kathryn Smith, who is leaving to take part in a round-the-world yacht race.

Calderwood, who steps down at the end of July, will remain on the board of Pathe Pictures.

The reshuffle follows the arrival of Francois Ivernel as Pathe’s managing director, replacing chief Alexis Lloyd. Ivernel will make all production decisions in with McCracken.
