Shropshire Business is an editorially-led publication with one simple objective – to champion the local economy, and celebrate the county’s amazing business success stories.
Company expansions, new product launches, key appointments, international trade deals . . . they’re all a vital part of the mix.
But the magazine, which won the coveted Midlands Magazine of the Year title at the end of 2018, is much more.
It blends an award-winning team of local journalists with experts in their field, who share crucial advice on industry trends, from GDPR to pension planning, and much more besides.
Shropshire Business is published by Wiggly Worm Media, owned and operated by multiple award-winning local media experts Carl Jones and Henry Carpenter.
Carl, a former assistant editor of the Shropshire Star, now works across print, radio and television as well as hosting events such as the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards, and edits the magazine.
Henry, who edited Shropshire Magazine for many years before launching his own media consultancy, takes the lead on the magazine’s accompanying website.
They are backed up by a team of talented designers and consultants with decades of experience in the industry.
Carl said: “I’ve been working in the business media for more than 20 years now, and it never fails to astound me just how many undiscovered gems we have in Shropshire, making waves around the world.
“Shropshire Business is all about trying to shine a light on the amazing entrepreneurs, investors, risk-takers and innovators who are busily getting on with doing amazing things – but sometimes forgetting to tell us about them.
“We are proud champions of Shropshire who share one of the Chamber’s key objectives – to help to keep the Shropshire pound right here in in the county, celebrating and supporting our local economy.”
