Broomhall said: "Haymarket has a fantastic array of titles which make for great digital products, and I believe there are many opportunities to make them even more successful."

In June, Haymarket Business Media, which publishes Media Week, Brand Republic, Marketing and Campaign, was named Digital Publisher of the Year in the business category at the AOP Awards.
