Muscant has been in the role since September 2016 and handled the company’s sites in Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and Newcastle, comprising staff across the Carat, iProspect, Vizeum, Amplifi, Fetch and Amnet agencies.

The agency released a statement confirming that the exec had stood down with immediate effect.

It said: “With a strong leadership team in place across our North operations, alongside the support of Dave Lucas, chairman, Dentsu Aegis Network North; Stef Calcraft, executive chairman, Dentsu Aegis Network UK & Ireland, and the wider executive team, it will remain business-as-usual for our teams and our clients.”

The company assures that it will announce Muscant's succession in the coming months.

The departure comes amid a frenzied week of departures and restructures in the industry. Chris Clarke, Digitas' chief creative officer announced his resignation, Jason Dormieux was named as Wavemaker's first chief transformation officer, and Carat secured Jo Sutherland as UK CEO.
