Seydoux

CEO

In 2000, Pathé and Gaumont, run by Seydoux and brother Nicolas, launched Europe’s biggest exhibitor, Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé, which was 66 percent owned and managed by Pathé until March 2017, when the remaining ownership was absorbed by Pathé for $400 million. Aside from its thriving exhibition business, the family-owned company has produced English-language pics including “The Queen” and “Slumdog Millionaire” and Pedro Almodovar’s “Pain & Glory,” which competed at Cannes. Pathé recently announced a partnership with French producer Philippe Rousselet to make ambitious English-language movies, kicking off with a remake of “La Famille Belier.” The company has pioneered the restoration and screening of classic titles via the Jérôme Seydoux Pathé Foundation, which is housed in a Renzo Piano-designed converted theater in Paris.
