The sale includes the Corporate Adviser website as well as all Corporate Adviser events, including the Corporate Adviser Awards and Corporate Adviser Summit. The business is being transferred as a going concern and John will run Corporate Adviser through his newly established media company Definite Article Media Ltd.
The background to the sale is so that the Centaur Media Financial Services portfolio can focus on fewer, larger brands moving forward which is all part of our forward strategy. This change along with the recent merger of Fund Strategy into Money Marketing means that the portfolio will consist of Money Marketing, Mortgage Strategy, Taxbriefs, Headlinemoney and Platforum. All of these brands have a mix of digital, reports, awards, conference, consultancy and print services. Our intention is to increase resources on these brands and ensure that we can continue to grow them in 2018 and beyond.
We would like to thank John for his considerable contribution to the business.
John Greenwood says: “Centaur Media has been a huge part of my life ever since joining the company in 2000 as a cub reporter on Money Marketing. I’ve worked with some fantastic people across the Financial portfolio, and I hope to stay in touch with many of you in the future. I’m looking forward to taking over the day-to-day management of Corporate Adviser, which will continue to deliver daily news and opinion to the corporate IFA and EBC community.
