The most significant aspect of the changes is that the title ‘Publisher’ will be dropped from job roles in a move designed to better reflect the function of senior managers in driving all aspects of the commercial development of their brands.

Future CEO Mark Wood says: “’Publisher’ is an outmoded job title for what is required of our business heads now. These changes reflect our re-positioning away from a platform-focused structure to a more audience-based approach. Our business leaders have a far broader remit to drive audience and revenue growth across a full range of platforms and touch points including events, video, ecommerce and mobile.

“Future’s business model has changed at speed and will continue to do so. We are recognised as an international leader in tablet publishing, we’ve delivered 46% growth year-on-year in global unique users and digital advertising now represents more than 57% of total advertising revenue. Meanwhile we are building powerful new offerings in terms of creative solutions, native content and beyond and in turn we are building significant new partnerships with international clients like Hyundai, O2 and Dell. The new structure best places us to drive the business forward.”

Future last week announced the launch of The Photography Show, a major new consumer/trade event scheduled for the NEC next March and supported by the Royal Photographic Society. Meanwhile Future’s innovation continues to be recognised by the UK media industry. The company has been named Digital Publisher of the Year by both the PPA and the AOP, and was named Media Company of the Year at the recent British Media Awards.
