Perry left the agency at the start of this month after just ten months in the role, as reported first by Campaign.

Hulbert’s remit will include focusing on the operational day-to-day running of the WPP agency. Daplyn has been tasked with leading client business, innovation and business development.

The pair will report to Mel Edwards, Wunderman’s EMEA chief executive and UK chairman. They will work alongside Ian Haworth, the recently appointed executive creative director, and Richard Dunn, the chief strategy officer, as part of the UK management team.

Hulbert and Daplyn both joined from Lida in 2013. Hulbert has since managed the Shell business, while Daplyn was promoted from business director to oversee client services.

Edwards said: "Chris and Pip are proven talents and richly deserve their promotions. We now have a first-class management board in place to continue driving the agency forward."
