Colette Foster, joint managing director of UK-prodco Remarkable Television, is stepping down after eight years with the company.

First joining the Endemol Shine Group-owned prodco in 2007 as an executive producer, she took her current role in 2009 and both developed and oversaw more than 20 primetime factual entertainment programs, including Gok’s Fashion Fix, Bodyshockers with Katie Piper and The House that 100K Built. She will continue in the role until the summer.

“My decision to leave couldn’t have been tougher and whilst I’m hugely excited about my next move, which I can’t reveal just yet, it will be very hard to say goodbye when the time comes,” she said in a statement.

The move is the latest in a string of departures from the international Endemol Shine executive roster, which have included Shine Australia CEOs Mark and Carl Fennessy, Endemol Australia CEO Janeen Faithfull, Endemol UK chief creative officer David Flynn and Endemol Shine Group co-CEO of international operations Gary Carter.
