David Levin, CEO, United Business Media
United Business Media
Since taking over UBM in 2005, Levin has pursued an aggressive strategy in remaking the company. He has closed numerous print publications and focused on buying events and data businesses in Asia, Europe and South America. But North America remains the region where UBM does the majority of its business. UBM's $287 million acquisition of Canon Communications, completed last month, will only add to its revenue in the region.
