WPP appoints John Rogers as its Director of Finance

The appointment comes midst a string of profit warnings.

WPP, the world’s biggest advertising agency, has appointed John Rogers, the CEO of retailer Sainsbury’s Argos as its new director of finance.

Rogers will be taking over from outgoing Paul Richardson in early 2020.

Over the years, Rogers has held a number of senior posts in Sainsbury’s, including its finance director from 2010 to 2016.

His work experience fans across several continents, including India, United States, Japan, South Africa and China.

Incidentally, WPP is still in recovery mode following a string of profit warnings.

Last month it appointed Keith Weed, the marketing boss of Unilever, to its board.
