Monthly magazine for internal corporate communications departments, CorpComms, has been sold by Cross Border to a management buyout by editor Helen Dunne.
With backing from investors, Dunne has created new publishing company Hardy Media, which has also taken over the CorpComms annual awards and the CorpComms 100 Club.
Dunne, former associate City editor of The Daily Telegraph, has been editing the title on a freelance basis for three years. She said: ‘Every journalist at one stage despairs at things and says ‘I could do that so much better’, and this is a chance for me to have a go at it, it’s the next stage in my career.”
The magazine launched in June 2005 and is features led with a mixed paid-for and free distribution, and a circulation of 9,000.
The magazine’s website will launch in September, offering a news and a jobs board.
