Starting with Kung Fu Monthly magazine in 1974, this London-based publisher has broadened its portfolio to include more than 30 print and online titles as diverse as The Week, Alphr, Auto Express and Viz. Under chief executive James Tye, 47, it has outperformed its peers to grow profits to £5.7m in 2014, and last year expanded into e-commerce, acquiring buyacar.co.uk. The business is 100% run for the benefit of the Heart of England Forest Charity after founder Felix Dennis died in 2014.
