Tim Lindsay, the Publicis UK chairman, is quitting his role at the struggling agency to join Omnicom's TBWA as chief executive of TBWA Group UK.

His resignation leaves Publicis without a chairman, chief executive or managing director and follows a series of account losses at the agency, including the £43 million Asda business.

At TBWA\ he will replace Paul Bainsfair, who exited the agency in March.
