Distribution & readership

CEO is the only publication with global reach received exclusively by C-level decision-makers within the world’s largest and most powerful organisations. The multiple responsibilities of these leaders coupled with rapidly changing political, business, economic and regulatory environments mean they demand the type of strategic, tactical and peer-led information that CEO provides.

CEO is mailed directly to named individuals: CEOs, CIOs, CFOs and COOs (and their equivalents) within companies with a turnover in excess of £100 million, generating a projected readership of approximately 47,000 (publisher’s statement).

Our continual investment into readership by refining and fine-tuning the distribution to every named individual has created the most exciting database available.
