Sir Martin Sorrell, founder and Executive Chairman of digital advertising, marketing and technology services company S4 Capital, is undergoing 'further preventative treatment' following keyhole surgery in February to remove a tumour.
Sorrell (pictured) formed S4 Capital in May 2018 after he left WPP under a cloud. The business has mainly focused on digital marketing but now includes a Technology Services offering following an acquisition. Last month, the group for the first time reported full-year revenues of more than £1 billion.
In February, S4 Capital announced that 78-year-old Sorrell had undergone surgery to remove a tumour, but stated that he was expected to make a 'rapid and full recovery and continue to be fully engaged in the company's affairs'. In a memo sent to staff yesterday, Sorrell announced he would be having further treatment, adding that he will be able to work as normal most of the time.
'I have made an excellent recovery, and, as you would expect, I have sought the best possible medical advice. My conclusion is that I should have preventative treatment over the coming months. My doctors have advised me that during this treatment, I should be able to work as normal most of the time, fully engaging with the company and our excellent executive team, although I have also decided to reduce my travel schedule for a few weeks. Otherwise, business as usual'.
