Emap makes changes

Guardian Media Group and private equity firm Apax – the joint owners of the business arm and the Emap Communications name since March –  have restructured the company as four divisions:

  • Emap Inform – magazines;
  • Emap Connect – exhibitions and festivals;
  • Emap Insight – data;
  • Emap Networks – conferences.

The company name will change from Emap Communications to just Emap.

David Gilbertson, 50, chief executive of B2B publisher Informa, was appointed to head the group last month.

Guardian Media Group said last month that the proportion of its revenues gained from print had fallen from about 85% to 65% since the Emap purchase.

The emap.co.uk and emap.com sites were down this morning.
