Toronto-based media company KMI Publishing and Events – the publisher of Canadian Real Estate Wealth and Canadian Mortgage Professional – earned a spot on the Profit 500 list of Canada’s fastest-growing companies. Nice to see a publisher recognizing another publisher!
KMI Publishing and Events has seen its new-world mix of trade and consumer titles coupled with industry conferences grow revenue by 162 per cent over the last five years.
“We’re very honoured and grateful for the support of our readers and clients,” says KMI president and CEO Tim Duce. “Certainly, it’s been a tough five years for all traditional media and publishing companies, and to be the only B2B & B2C media company on this year’s list is an illustration of the business model we brought to Canada, but also the entrepreneurial initiative of our team.”
The company now publishes a mix of eight digital and print titles, focused on reporting both breaking news and in-depth coverage of real estate, mortgage, insurance, human resources and wealth management industries. It also hosts seven annual business events and conference across Canada, drawing thousands for education and networking.
Canadian Real Estate Wealth enjoyed a 10% increase in newsstand sales in 2012.
