Highbury Media takes over Ramsay Media
Highbury Media will take over Ramsay Media, including titles Getaway, Leisure Wheels, Popular Mechanics and CAR, effective 2 October 2017. According to a statement issued by Highbury, it will then start assessing the operations and management of the business.
“Highbury is in an enviable position,” says its CEO, Kevin Ferguson. “We’ve grown and developed despite the industry changes. We have proven that forward-thinking operators can excel, even as our business models continue to shift in this business. I’ve always been an admirer of Ramsay Media and a fan of these magazine titles. When the opportunity presented itself to have an impact on their future, I knew it was an opportunity too good to pass on for Highbury. It’s an exciting announcement for Highbury and we look forward to working closely with the teams at Ramsay to build and grow together.”
