WPP集团CEO苏铭天爵士宣布辞职,告别33年广告活动策划媒体事业

摘要:苏铭天还是辞职了。之前针对他的调查WPP声明中表示已经终结,指控所涉及的部分并没有绝对实证。根据就业协议,董事薪酬政策规定,苏铭天爵士的卸任被定义为“从WPP退休”,并能够进行股票奖励评级获得相应的股份。

4月14日晚,WPP集团正式宣布:全球最大广告活动策划传播集团WPP CEO 苏铭天(Martin Sorrel)爵士即将辞去首席执行官一职。现任董事长 Roberto Quarta 将担任集团执行董事长(exec. Chairman),直到新的CEO获得任命。Mark Read(现任伟门/WPP Digital CEO)和 Andrew Scott (WPP企业发展总监/欧洲区COO)共同担任WPP的联席首席运营官。而在公司找到新的合适继任者之前,Sorrell将“有机会协助事态的演进。”

苏铭天爵士曾在1977年到1984年担任Saatchi & Saatchi公司的团体金融处主任。1985年与合伙人以67万美元的价格购买了英国上市公司Wire Plastic Products的控股权。经过30余年的奋斗,苏铭天(Martin Sorrel)将WPP由一家经营超市购物车的小公司转变为坐拥奥美、智威汤逊、电扬、传力媒体、尚扬媒介、博雅、伟达、明略行、杨特、朗涛等知名传播服务品牌的广告传播集团。

4月3日,苏铭天曾因涉嫌不当个人行为接受公司调查,WPP声明中表示调查已经终结,指控所涉及的部分并没有绝对实证。

在一份致员工的声明中,苏铭天表示这只是暂时的中断,“我决定为了大家的利益,为了客户的利益,为了所有大股东和小股东的利益,为了所有利益相关者的利益,站到一边去。在过去,我们经历过更大困难的风暴,而我们这些才华横溢的人们,总能将之克服。”

根据就业协议,董事薪酬政策规定,苏铭天爵士的卸任被定义为“从WPP退休”,并能够进行股票奖励评级获得相应的股份。

苏铭天爵士写给全集团的告别信

To everyone at WPP:

For the past 33 years, I have spent every single day thinking about the future of WPP.

Over those decades, our family has grown and prospered.

We welcomed J. Walter Thompson, Ogilvy, Young & Rubicam, Grey, 24/7 Real Media, Taylor Nelson Sofres, among so many others.

We created GroupM, including Xaxis and Essence.

We put the focus on Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East and Central Eastern Europe, the home of the next billion consumers. We embarked on the early development of digital capabilities; and the evolution of a firm-wide integrated client and country-centered approach.

Our holding company was recognized as the world's best and most effective through the Cannes Lions and Effie Awards year after year after year.

We pioneered Atticus Awards for original written thinking…. the WPP Fellowship Awards to recognize promising talent…. the Partnership and Practice Awards for client endorsed integrated market and case studies.

Our Stream digital conferences have attracted the best in the digital business for more than a decade.

Our Annual Sustainability and Pro Bono Reports highlight the unique social, environmental and public policy work that we do day in, day out across the globe.

As I look ahead, I see that the current disruption we are experiencing is simply putting too much unnecessary pressure on the business, our over 200,000 people and their 500,000 or so dependents, and the clients we serve in 112 countries.

That is why I have decided that in your interest, in the interest of our clients, in the interest of all shareowners, both big and small, and in the interest of all our other stakeholders, it is best for me to step aside.

We have had a succession plan in place for some time. A new generation of management, led by Mark Read and Andrew Scott (who have each been at WPP for approximately 20 years), are well qualified and experienced in the Board's opinion, to deal with the geographic and technological opportunities and challenges our industry faces.

We have weathered difficult storms in the past. And our highly talented people have always won through, always.

Nobody, either direct competitors or newly-minted ones can beat the WPP team, as long as you work closely together, whether by client and/or country or digitally.ther stakeholders, it is best for me to step aside.

In the coming period, I will be available to the Board and any of you, should you want help with anything, anywhere. I shall miss all of you greatly. You have given me such excitement and energy and I wanted to thank you for everything you have done and will do for WPP and me.

As some of you know, my family has expanded recently, WPP will always be my baby too.

As a Founder, I can say that WPP is not just a matter of life or death, it was, is and will be more important than that. Good fortune and Godspeed to all of you…now Back to the Future.

Thank you.

( Martin Sorrell )
