What does a publisher actually do anyway?
The old EMAP B2B business, now co owned by Apax and GMG is feeling the effects of a new broom sweeping clean. CEO Gilbertson has sacked 8 publishers according to this story on Brand Republic.
That saves a useful £1m or so and clears out a good chunk of the layer of management that Gilbertson might have thought a barrier to change. Theres more to come I'll bet.
