Part of the wider Emap company, Insight’s products – which include eight websites – provide reports, news, data and analysis across the retail, fashion, automotive, built environment, political and media industries.

[Stephen’s] global experience and commercial acumen at identifying and exploiting new opportunities will be invaluable as we position our leading portfolio of information services products for dramatic growth in the UK and beyond.
Wilson, Reuters’ former global head of exchange traded instruments since 2006, added:
I am looking forward to bringing my B2B data business experience to EMAP and working with the senior team to further develop Insight’s world-class portfolio of intelligence and content assets.
