Life after Sorrell
Who is the likely successor?
Mark Read, the boss of WPP’s digital marketing agency Wunderman as well as WPP Digital, is tipped as one of the favourites to replace Sorrell as the hunt for a new boss begins. He was made joint chief operating officer of the business alongside Andrew Scott on Saturday night after Sorrell’s retirement. He set up online loyalty business WebRewards in 1999 and is chairman of the Natural History Museum’s digital council.
