Open Door Media Publishing Ltd was established in 2013 as a result of the management buyout of InvestmentEurope from Incisive Media. The MBO was led by Nick Rapley, CEO, and Louise Hanna, Director.
Nick was one of the founding directors of Incisive Media in 1994 and was the Managing Director of the Financial Services Division there until 2013. In this time he helped to grow Incisive Media into a global media company with numerous brands. Louise joined Incisive Media in 2005 and was Head of Sales for the company’s financial services events portfolio.
InvestmentEurope was launched in 2011 to serve the information needs of investment professionals in Europe. Nick and Louise saw that the brand had significant potential if given enough focus so they agreed the MBO with Incisive and set up Open Door Media to do just that.
The next big thing in financial services media was born.
In 2013 the company employed nine staff responsible for producing InvestmentEurope, both in print and online, plus half a dozen events. The company has since grown and now employs 26 staff from its offices in Shoreditch, London.
We now publish two titles, InvestmentEurope and International Investment, and produce over thirty conferences per year across the world.
