Creativity at our very core

We believe in creative independence; the autonomy we give to our people and imprints ensures that we remain market-focused and relevant to all readers and customers. Our imprints are supported by a strong central platform that includes finance, operations, IT, sales, foreign rights sales, communications, legal and marketing. That scalable platform enables us to grow our business organically and by acquisitions.
