Steven Sharp: former M&S marketer is now consulting for WPP

Steven Sharp, the former marketing director of Marks & Spencer, is working as a consultant for WPP, which now holds both the creative and media accounts for the retailer.

Sharp, who was M&S’s marketing director for ten years, has been working on retail projects for the holding company for several months.

Last week, M&S moved its media account from incumbents Walker Media and Profero into WPP’s Mindshare.

Sharp retired from M&S in February, and was replaced by Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, the former group president of Estée Lauder.

A spokesman for WPP said: "Steven is working with WPP as a consultant on various retail marketing projects."

M&S's creative advertising business is held by another WPP-owned agency, Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R.
