We are Shard


A brand new company with a distinguished brand heritage

Our founders, Nick Miller, Luke Broadhurst and Douglas Wright, have been at the leading edge of business media through more than 30 years of seismic change.
Between them they share a wide experience of success in publishing, from leadership of small businesses, to board roles at companies like Wilmington Group, Incisive Media and Maclean Hunter.
They have launched, acquired and developed brands of all kinds, from events to print publishing and digital media, and have served a wide range of specialist B2B and B2C communities.
In February 2016, Shard acquired Athene Publishing, a landmark producer of conferences, magazines and award schemes for the financial services sector. 
This acquisition formed the core of Shard Financial Media, a fast-growing business serving key communities in UK and Pan-European financial services.


Our business

We have a respected presence in consumer and commercial lending, collections and credit management, payroll and rewards, and turnaround, restructuring and insolvency (TRI) – and the list is growing all the time.
Our expert teams have an enviable reputation for producing content across digital, face-to-face and print channels, creating both compelling in-house editorial and collaborative content alongside its clients and communities. 
We leverage esteemed brands with expert personnel. The result: an innovative media company where talented people want to work, and with whom discerning customers want to do business.
