Key company contacts

Wayne Darroch
Group Publisher:
(+44) 0207 062 2526

Wayne has a wealth of experience, having first moved into publishing 28 years ago, which means he qualifies as one of the official elder statesmen of the industry.


Lesley Simpson
+(44) 01932 707173

Lesley has been writing about the changing face of the UK commercial printing industry for more than 30 years. Having graduated from London University to 'pasting-up' advertisements for Yellow Advertiser Group magazines and spending long hours at typesetters and printers proofing galleys and passing pages, Lesley migrated to writing about the print sector, starting out in the 1980s as a novice reporter on the long gone New in Printing magazine before becoming a news hack. She followed this as news/features editor of PrintWeek (then LithoWeek!) where she also had the dubious pleasure of editing one of the first trade show 'dailies'. For the last ten years she has edited print trade publications for SJP Business Media, where she has edited Image Reports since 2008.
