History

Haymarket began as Cornmarket Press in the 1950s. Clive Labovitch and Michael Heseltine – later a minister under Margaret Thatcher and Deputy Prime Minister under John Major – who had met at university started out with the 1957 Directory of Opportunities for Graduates and in 1959 relaunched Man About Town , which was to become an influential (if unprofitable) men's consumer magazine. The company failed in its relaunch of the British news weekly Topic, the title closing at the end of 1962, within three months of the takeover.[3] The partners split in 1965, with Heseltine renaming his half of the business Haymarket Press to publish Management Today.[4] The company was renamed Haymarket Publishing and, due to its growing presence in online media and live events, it was rebranded as Haymarket Media Group in 2007.
