2015 PARTNERS

Dennis Publishing


Dennis Publishing is one of the world’s leading independent publishers. Founded in 1974, the group consists of a number of operating companies in the UK and USA.

Although the group has experienced explosive growth over the past five years, even during the terrifying recession of 2009, success hasn't diminished our frontier spirit.

As a privately held group of companies, the Dennis Group is dedicated to delivering what customers and advertisers want, rather than concentrating on the somewhat narrower goals of stockholders and analysts.

Dennis Publishing is one of the world's fastest-growing independently owned media companies. Group turnover exceeds £85 million a year, excluding our subsidiary companies.

The company publishes over 70 magazines, digital magazines, Magbooks , websites, apps and mobile sites in the UK (including The Week, Auto Express, PC Pro, Viz and Men’s Fitness) and The Week in the US.

Dennis is also a major shareholder in Dovetail Services Ltd and owns the third party marketing company 3PM.

Dennis Publishing is privately owned by Felix Dennis.
