CX agency Lavender CEO Roy Capon has exited the agency for an international opportunity.

Capon has been at the agency for nearly two years, joining as CEO in 2016 as founder Will Lavender stepped into a chairman role.

He resigned from the agency last week and is yet to announce his next move, but confirmed it will be overseas.

His role won’t be replaced in the agency, instead will be absorbed into the leadership team, which includes head of technology Clint Bauer, chief creative officer Anna Karena, GM Doug Skoog and ECD Ryan Stubna.

Lavender says: “We wish Roy well in the future. CX Lavender’s talented senior team will continue to drive the business forward in our mission to create world-class CX that helps our clients stand apart in the eyes of their customers.”

Capon has more than 20 years' experience in the industry, including four years at DigitasLBi building the agency's Asia-Pacific network in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, China and India. 

He has also held roles in the UK at Y&R and Wunderman.
