He reports to Nick Theakstone, Group M’s UK chief executive, and replaces Mike Smallwood, who has left the business.

Greenhouse Group M was set up in 2015 after WPP won the Lloyds media account, then reported to be worth £100m.

Warren left MullenLowe last year, and has since been working as a strategic consultant to Studio of Art & Commerce.
