"The redesign of Business Insurance is an important step in the evolution of the publication. The studies that we have done have shone a light on the fact that our readers' habits have changed over time, and we have taken the critical step of keeping up with, and even staying one step ahead, of trends in publishing in general," said Business Insurance Editor Gavin Souter.

"The news is delivered fast through the internet, and we have that capability well in hand with our web and mobile sites.  The print publication provides an excellent forum for in-depth analysis and interviews that our readers need in the complex world we live and work within.  The addition of the tablet format will allow our readers to access the Business Insurance content easily through all forms of media currently available to them.  And we couldn't be more excited to be participating in this important media transition that's happening across the globe," he said.
