He went on to be editor of Punch, chairman of the British Tourist Authority, and publisher of High Life, the British Airways in-flight magazine. Now he has emerged to head the group of contract magazines.
Davis sold High Life to MCC, and the story of HHL after that like something out of a wheeler dealer's handbook. When Maxwell went belly up, HHL was bought out of MCC. Davis left HHL after a boardroom row, taking High Life and other goodies with him. And now that he's back, he - and his publishing company - have been bought by Omnicom, the huge American advertising group. Which all goes to show that a journalistic training, especially under 'the Beaver' can lead to fame and fortune.Reuse content
