After some
50 years at the helm, Lord Michael Heseltine will relinquish his role as
executive chairman of Haymarket Media Group in January 2010.

His son

A company

overall Haymarket Group; at the same time Alan Kemp will relinquish his post as
business development director and continue as a non-executive director on the
Group Board.”

“I am
thrilled to accept the role of executive chairman,” says Rupert Heseltine. “I
look forward to developing the business and thank Michael for his trust and
confidence in me. Michael has led us through recent difficult times.”
