Fleet World Group incorporates VansA2Z into its growing portfolio
The Fleet World Group (FWG) has added the VansA2Z brand to its portfolio of business motoring titles.
VansA2Z is run by Publishing Director Kevin Gregory and Editorial Director/Editor Neil McIntee, and serves the large SME commercial vehicle market in the UK through its reviews and news website and DriveVansA2Z show at Silverstone, which takes place this autumn. All its products will now be run and published under the FWG banner.
Gregory and McIntee have more than 20 years experience each in the commercial vehicle market, and the acquisition of the VansA2Z brand will complement Fleet World Group’s existing title, Van Fleet World, which will continue to serve the van fleet sector with VFW editor Dan Gilkes at the helm.
From June 1, Kevin Gregory will assume advertising, event, partnership and sponsorship responsibility for both Van Fleet World and VansA2Z.
Fleet World Group owner Jerry Ramsdale said: “Incorporating VansA2Z gives us access to a vital sector of the commercial vehicle market, and bringing Kevin and Neil on board adds experience and knowledge to the FWG team.
“The two brands, Van Fleet World and VansA2Z, complement each other and give us complete coverage of all sectors of the UK light commercial vehicle market. We have a number of exciting and innovative new products due for launch in the coming months and they are an ideal fit for VansA2Z too.”
Kevin Gregory added: “We are really pleased that Fleet World Group has seen the potential of VansA2Z and look forward to developing and expanding the brand into all areas of the SME van market. It is a perfect fit for both titles and gives us an incredibly strong offering in the van media sector.”
