    [$$] Martin Sorrell Criticizes WPP’s Strategy Following His Departure

    CANNES, France—Former WPP PLC chief Martin Sorrell lashed out at the ad giant on Thursday, criticizing its strategy as well as the handling of his resignation as CEO in April. Mr. Sorrell, who was attending the annual Cannes Lions advertising festival, said he “violently” disagreed with Chairman Roberto Quarta’s claim that he was treated the same as any other employee facing dismissal. After decades at the firm, Mr. Sorrell stepped down after The Wall Street Journal reported in early April that WPP’s board was looking into an allegation of improper personal behavior and whether he had misused company assets, and that the board had retained a law firm for a probe.

    The chair of WPP has defended the handling of Sir Martin Sorrell’s exit and insisted the world’s largest advertising group was powerless to stop its founder from walking away with share bonuses worth up to £20m. Roberto Quarta told shareholders at the group’s annual general meeting on Wednesday there was “no basis” to cancel Sorrell’s share awards because the company had no proof of misconduct – despite a series of allegations against the former chief executive. While Quarta brushed off a modest vote against his own reappointment, several shareholders criticised incentive plans that allow Sorrell to keep earning even after a departure that took place against a backdrop of lurid allegations.
