    Ad group WPP hit by client losses in North America

    The world's biggest advertising company WPP suffered a sharp drop in first-quarter underlying sales in North America as the loss of work from clients such as Ford took a toll on its most important market. WPP, led by company veteran Mark Read following last year's departure of founder Martin Sorrell, said its U.S. performance was disappointing but in line with expectations. WPP, the owner of agencies including JWT and Ogilvy, is in the middle of an overhaul following several profit warnings in 2017 and 2018 and the turmoil linked to Sorrell's abrupt departure over a complaint of misconduct, which he denied.
