The Autumn edition of Tees Business is out next week. Co-editor Martin Walker reveals a little about the contents of what will be the biggest and most exciting edition yet – including results of our readers’ poll to discover the businessmen and women who inspire their peers.
It’s perhaps no surprise that Teesside’s two turbo-charged Steves, Gibson and Cochrane, both feature high in the list of our region’s most outstanding businesspeople that takes centre stage in the Autumn issue of Tees Business magazine.
The public profiles of both have been high for many years, while they continue to achieve much business success – Gibson with Bulkhaul, Rockliffe Hall Hotel and, of course, Premier League Boro, while Cochrane has shown his own commitment to Teesside in retaining his fashion department store Psyche in Middlesbrough.
Running an equally successful Tees business but with nowhere near the same public profile is Alistair Powell of Cleveland Cable Company. But that didn’t stop many of our readers who took part in our poll from voting for the publicity-shy business leader.
We’re keeping the actual results of our poll a closely guarded secret – though I will reveal that Nifco’s Mike Matthews, Wilton Engineering’s Bill Scott and Tees Valley Unlimted’s Paul Booth – who recently retired from SABIC – are all up there too, along with one or two surprises.
This will be the seventh issue of the only publication dedicated to celebrating Teesside’s business scene – and we are confident you’ll agree it’s the best yet.
For the first time we’ve increased the size of Tees Business to 52 pages – and we’re ready to go bigger style in our Winter edition – but, as the saying goes, size isn’t everything, it’s what you do with it that counts.
That’s why we invest in a professional distribution company to ensure the magazine reaches the business leaders, companies and business hubs others don’t. People constantly tell us: “I see that magazine everywhere!”
And when you see it, you tell us that you read it thoroughly too. Unlike certain publications we won’t mention, Tees Business is always relevant to Teesside’s business people – and jam-packed full of people and business you know. And it’s a great chance to learn more about those Tees neighbours you don’t know so well.
