    Ford tells WPP it will take bids from other ad agencies

    Ford Motor Company said on Saturday it will take bids on some of its advertising managed by WPP, adding to uncertainty around the British ad giant after last week's exit of founder Martin Sorrell. While Ford's decision does not affect all of its accounts with WPP - and the agency will be able to bid for the rest of the business along with everyone else - it comes at a difficult juncture for the world's biggest advertising firm. Sorrell, who over 33 years built the firm into one of Britain's biggest companies, quit last week as chief executive officer after an allegation of personal misconduct that he denies.

    End of Sorrell's reign heralds change for big ad empires

    Martin Sorrell's departure from the world's biggest advertising company heralds change for his sprawling WPP (WPP.L) empire and may accelerate a shake up of the big ad groups that followed his lead. WPP and its major rivals Omnicom (OMC.N), Publicis (PUBP.PA) and IPG (IPG.N) face challenges on every front, from the might of Google and Facebook - whom Sorrell famously dubbed "frenemies" - to the rapidly encroaching consultants Accenture and Deloitte. "I don't think this is the event that brings down the holding companies," industry adviser and MediaLink Chief Executive Michael Kassan told Reuters.

    Growth in UK firms' marketing budgets slowest since start of 2016

    British businesses' marketing budgets rose at the slowest pace since the start of 2016 in the first quarter as challenging market conditions continued to put pressure on companies, an industry survey showed on Wednesday. The IPA Bellwether report, conducted by IHS Markit (Stuttgart: A1139A - news) , showed that 22.9 percent of companies increased their marketing budgets in the quarter, compared with 17.9 percent of firms that recorded a fall. "Rising costs and the ongoing uncertainty that exists over the future direction of the UK economy in a post Brexit world have led to caution and belt-tightening across a number of sectors, especially those more exposed to retail and consumption," Paul Smith, Director at IHS Markit said.
