Headpoint Advisors has advised Marlen Roberts, owner and Managing Director of Insider Media Limited on its sale to National World plc. The sale completed on 28 April 2023.
Insider is the UK’s leading regional B2B media company able to offer advertising and sponsorship opportunities in print, in person and online, providing solutions across three platforms. With origins dating back to the early ‘90s it has built a loyal following of its business-orientated Insider magazines and a large B2B subscriber base for its daily email newsletters, business information and events.
