Technology publisher Dennis is expanding its B2B offering with a newly-formed dedicated sales team, headed up by new B2B commercial director, Christian Cannon.
Services as lead generation, bespoke content, partnerships, display and events, have been a priority for the Dennis. The publisher has doubled in size in the last two years, part of a wider investment to ensure a relevant offering for its advertising partners.
John Garewal, MD of technology at Dennis, says: “Dennis has an incredible portfolio of technology brands, that has championed the best technology content for approaching four decades. Within this, our B2B brands alone reach a business audience of over 2.4m every month.
Looking forward, our dedicated B2B team will further solidify our position in the market and allow us to grow and invest in our business offering, with a specific focus on business campaign delivery and lead generation.”
