UK— Ex-Synovate CEO Robert Philpott resigned from the board of Aegis Group, Synovate’s former parent company, at the end of 2011.

Philpott left Synovate with its sale to Ipsos last year, which was sold by Aegis for £525m.

He had been with Synovate since its creation in 2002, beginning as chief executive of the Americas before becoming global chief operating officer in 2007 and CEO in 2009.

Prior to that Philpott worked as a managing director for Asia Market Intelligence – which went on to become part of Synovate.

Aegis chairman John Napier said: “On behalf of the board and the executive team I would like to thank Robert for his tremendous contribution and wish him every success in the future.”

Philpott’s Linkedin profile lists his current occupation as consultant.
