Pam Abdy is stepping down from her post as New Regency’s president of production, TheWrap has learned.

“We have loved working with Pam over the past three years. She is a phenomenal executive with incredible instincts and filmmaker relationships,” said New Regency chairman Yariv Milchan and COO Jonathan Fischer in a joint statement. “We are so appreciative of her dedication to the company and most recently for her work on ‘The Revenant‘ and the upcoming ‘Assassin’s Creed.'”

Milchan and Fischer are expected to announce a replacement for Abdy in the upcoming weeks.

Abdy joined New Regency in 2013 after her stint as president of Bluegrass, which she joined in 2008. Prior to her time at Bluegrass, she served as executive vice president of development and production at Paramount.

New Regency’s award-winning credits include “12 Years a Slave,” “Birdman” and last year’s “The Revenant.” The company is currently working on Steve McQueen‘s “Widows,” “Beautiful Boy” and “Fraggle Rock.”

In May, New Regency President Brad Weston also stepped down after nearly five years in the role. A statement issued by both Arnon Milchan, founder of New Regency, and Weston indicated that the decision was mutual and that Weston is moving on to a new challenge.
