WPP: former JWT CEO leaves the group

More than two years after a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Gustavo Martinez upended the ad industry and two months following the settlement of said suit, WPP and the former JWT CEO have announced that they will go their separate ways.

Campaign first broke the news this afternoon.

“Gustavo Martinez and WPP have agreed it is in the best interests of both parties for him to pursue his career outside the group,” said a holding company spokesperson.

Adweek also reached out directly to Martinez, who at this time still maintains working email addresses for both WPP and JWT.

“It’s time for me to leave WPP to chase other personal projects and passions,” Martinez wrote. He did not elaborate on those projects.

The reasons for his departure are unclear, though one source did note that the news precedes a meeting of WPP’s board of directors scheduled for next week. Συνδεθείτε μαζί μας στο Facebook και ενημερωθείτε πρώτοι για τα νέα άρθρα -->
