Sorrell successor to be announced within weeks

The appointment of a successor to Sir Martin Sorrell as chief executive of WPP is expected to be announced within the next few weeks when the group has completed negotiations with the preferred candidate.

Responding to rumours that the job will go to Mark Read, WPP said “we cannot be drawn on the precise timing of the announcement nor the identity of the likely new CEO.”
