Former JWT global chief executive Gustavo Martinez has departed WPP in a sign that the ad group's new leadership wants to draw a line under his controversial tenure.
It brings a close to a heated legal battle that dragged for years.
CEO Gustavo Martinez created "a workplace cut through with hostility," says judge.
Legal wrangling over admissibility of tape continues with affidavits from top JWT execs saying the joke was harmless.
Tamara Ingram, WPP chief client team officer, will replace him as worldwide CEO.
Tape shows Martinez joking about "being raped" by black hotel guests but "not in a nice way" at Miami retreat, say sources.
