Reeves (pictured) will remain a non-executive of Savanta. His new company is called WALR, with the strapline ‘data & growth in unison'.

Reeves was CEO of Viga for three and a half years before Savanta was formed when Next 15’s MIG Global merged its research businesses.

He said: "For the past four years, my journey with Viga, Savanta and Next 15 has been nothing short of fantastic. We’ve collectively achieved some amazing feats, which I’m personally extremely proud of, and have done so with a group of talented individuals. With Savanta in an extremely healthy position it felt like the time was right to step away from my operational role.

"I will remain with Savanta in a non-executive capacity. This will give me time to explore a number of new ventures and passions of mine, some of which are well underway and there'll be more news in the coming weeks. I thank everyone at Savanta and Next15 for their support and belief over the past few years."

At Savanta, Charlotte Elver, Richard Branch, Scott Dodgson and James Eldridge will now head its market intelligence platform BrandVue – Elver on product, Branch and Dodgson on the commercial side and Eldridge on operations.
