Advertising giant WPP - which is seeking to restructure following the abrupt departure of former boss Sir Martin Sorrell last year - has appointed Cindy Rose, the UK chief executive of Microsoft, to its board as a non-executive director.

WPP chairman Roberto Quarta said: "Cindy is one of the most admired and respected figures in the technology industry, and we are delighted to welcome her to the WPP board.

"Her deep understanding of the role of technology in business transformation will be invaluable as the executive team implements its new strategy for growth."

Earlier this month, WPP reported that full-year pre-tax profits fell almost a third last year to £1.46bn, a drop it blamed largely on restructuring costs.
