Anderson, who disclosed the departure on his LinkedIn page, joins the company in December as a “strategic advisor.”

Anderson has been CMO at Roku since August 2013. Prior to that, he worked as a strategic advisor for 21st Century Fox, working with Murdoch.

Anderson was Roku’s first CMO, a stint that included scaling the business “in the face of tech giants,” transforming the company’s business model, launching an IPO on Nasdaq and becoming the No. 1 TV streaming platform in the U.S.

“Roku’s greatest innovations are to come,” Anderson said. “After moving on I will remain its biggest fan.”
