About Me

Duncan Williams has several years of broadcasting and new media experience working for industry giants such as Independent News and Media Plc, News Corp, Trinity Mirror, Goldcrest Films and Heart of London Radio.

With the increased impact of mass communications in recent times he believes the media has an increased responsibility to provide beneficial content for readers.

Editorial focus being placed upon 'bringing positive news to positive people', has greatly helped his sales and advertising to increase.

A portfolio of titles launched specifically at improving communication within local communities has proven very successful throughout the EU.

Buying up formerly loss making regional newspapers, fast tracking them into profit with value advertising, has been a winning business formula.

In 2008 Duncan was appointed a Director on the board of Independent News Ltd.

Do you have a new digital app, magazine title or local newspaper business for sale? If so, Duncan might be interested in hearing from you...
