Many of WPP s 200,000 staff will feel "liberated" after the departure of founder Sir Martin Sorrell, according to one of his most senior lieutenants.
Stephen Allan, boss of WPP-owned media buying agency Mediacom, said Sir Martin s energy would be missed.
But he added Sir Martin always had an owner s mentality about running WPP, which many employees didn t appreciate.
Sir Martin resigned as chief executive on Saturday after 33 years running the world s biggest communications group.
