“The publishing game has changed dramatically in recent years. Forbes Africa has always had a passion for celebrating the people changing Africa and our new digital platform is in line with reaching that goal. The biggest trigger for the change we are experiencing is the imminent shift to digital. Companies like Forbes Africa who have already began investing in this direction as well as creating engaging content will have a competitive advantage and we are excited that this new medium will create a paradigm shift in the way our loyal readers consume content”. This is what Peace Hyde said after her appointment as the new Head of Digital Media and Strategic Partnerships, by the ABN Group owners of the prestigious Forbes Africa and CNBC Africa platforms.
We have been made to understand that Ms. Hyde will still be maintaining her current role as the West Africa Correspondent for the leading business publication but will also head up the new digital platform, Forbes Africa and drive user and engagement as well as create ongoing partnerships with brands and affiliates to cement the dominance of the magazine which is the number 1 read business magazine amongst Africa’s affluent according a recent Ipsos EMS Survey.
