UBM Sells Music
This may be the first of many disposals from business media companies who, in the absence of clear growth strategy and with pressure on margins from deteriorating ad markets, need to look busy.
United selling their music titles in the US is no surprise. Tony Keefe, the CEO is a Brit with a background in trade shows. Although he has been running these titles for UBM for about three years, this will be his first independent gig.
