Future re-jigs to incorporate Highbury titles

Future Publishing has overhauled its magazine operations into a series of new divisions as it absorbs 34 new titles as part of its deal with Highbury House.

The group will now contain five divisions – Entertainment, Technology, Excite, Living and Plus – as it attempts to build on its recent elevation to second largest special-interest publisher in the UK.

The five divisions will be headed by Mia Walter, Dom Beaven, Andy Semple, Simon Wear and David Maher-Roberts as their respective publishing directors.

The 34 titles brought in from Highbury House included Fast Car, Fast Bikes, DJ, DVD Review, the What range of magazines and a series of puzzles titles.

Managing Director Robert Price said: “Future is now the UK’s second largest special-interest magazine publisher, a position we’ve achieved through launching new titles, as well as seizing the opportunity to acquire magazines that fit well into our growing portfolio.

“As we grow this redefinition of our publishing groups enables us to continue building our business around core groups of loyal readers which, in turn, offers more to our advertisers.”

The Entertainment division will also contain an offshoot – Entertainment Business – to oversee its small group of B2B entertainment trade titles.
