Centaur Media has sold workplace financial services title Corporate Adviser to John Greenwood, who has edited the publication since the year of its inception in 2006.
The transaction includes the transfer of 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 delivery of content will be maintained throughout the transfer period.
Greenwood will run Corporate Adviser through his newly established media company Definite Article Media Ltd.
Greenwood says: “After 11 years as editor of Corporate Adviser I am delighted to be taking over ownership of it. I’m looking forward to continuing to ensure that Corporate Adviser delivers market-leading content across its key subject areas of workplace pensions, group risk and healthcare to our specialist readership.
“I have spent 16 years at Centaur over the last two decades, including a spell at Money Marketing, and have enjoyed my time there immensely. It is a fantastic company with a great culture – I shall miss it immensely but look forward to continuing to serve the Corporate Adviser audience with great content through Definite Article Media.
Centaur Financial deputy managing director Piers Johnson says: “We would like to thank John for his considerable contribution to the business. The background to the sale is so that the Centaur Media Financial Services portfolio can focus on fewer brands moving forward. 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.”
