Capita CEO, Jon Lewis, announces retirement


Capita plc has announced that Jon Lewis has told the Board about his plan to step down from the company.


Mr Lewis will leave his role as CEO and Director on the Board at the end of this year. However, he will stay in the company until July 2024 to ensure a smooth transition.

Adolfo Hernandez will take over as the new CEO and Director of Capita. Currently, he holds the position of Vice President of Global Telecommunications at Amazon Web Services (AWS). With a 30-year career in the technology industry, Mr Hernandez has held important leadership positions at SDL plc and Alcatel-Lucent.

Jon Lewis has been the CEO and Director at Capita since December 2017.

Last year, he let the Board know that he wanted to think about his future choices, which could include retiring from Capita and handing over his position to a new CEO. He said he would do this once the company had successfully changed direction and was growing, and once a potential replacement had been found. After this conversation, the Board started planning for the future leadership of the company.

Chairman of Capita, David Lowden, said:

On behalf of the Board and everyone at Capita, I would like to offer our sincere thanks to Jon and pay tribute to his significant commitment and achievements at Capita over the past five years.

I also want to pay particular tribute to his leadership in recent months, during which he decided to delay his possible retirement from Capita due to cyber incident we experienced in March.
