Where: Hearst Business Media
Why:Formed in 1999, Hearst Business Media's assets include Electronic Products, Floor Covering Weekly and Diversion, a leisure-time publication for physicians, but more than 80% of the unit's business comes from electronic products. Malloch has championed a business model based on subscription and licensing fees rather than advertising. "I believe knowledge has its highest value when it is customized, continuously updated and integrated into the professional's work flow," he said.
