Investors seem once again up in arms about the lack of a succession plan at WPP. According to a report in the Financial Times, Guy Jubb, head of governance at WPP investor Standard Life, accused WPP at its annual meeting in London this week of not being transparent enough about who will eventually succeed current CEO Martin Sorrell.

Mr. Sorrell recently told Ad Age, in an interview during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, why he won't publicly name a successor.
