A much happier industry-related news 'spot' from Past Master Tom Hempenstall (also responsible for bringing the recent obituary of Victor Watson to our attention) who noticed, in the Sunday Times of 12 April 2015, that the Mark Allen Group with its 62 trade and consumer magazines and websites (including, of course, PrintWeek), under the aegis of Liveryman Mark Allen (seen in on the right of the photo in his Renter Warden's gown and with his fellow Renter Wardens from 2012-2013) was featured as a one of the ten "stalwarts that were pipped at the post" in the Profit Track 100. It would seem that the ten companies in this section are to be judged by a panel of very eminent businessmen and the best will receive a special award at the Profit Track 100 national awards dinner in June. Fingers crossed for Mark and his son Ben in that and our hearty congratulations at having got this far which is no mean achievement at all.
