Pathe UK has appointed Colleen Woodcock as head of creative affairs.

Woodcock worked in development in production in Los Angeles for a decade, involved in projects including The Usual Suspects and Con Air, and she returned to the UK in 2001 to join Michael Kuhn's Qwerty Films as head of development. At Qwerty, she worked on films including Severance and Stage Beauty.

At Pathe, she replaces Celine Haddad who is leaving the company to develop and produce her own projects.
