Poets & Quants Sold to Times Higher Education
Times Higher Education in London has acquired Poets & Quants for an undisclosed amount. The website covers business education and is run by prominent business journalist John Byrne. Byrne will remain as CEO and editor-in-chief of the franchise for another three years.
“This is a match made in heaven,” said Byrne in a statement. “We’ll be joining a news and data-gathering organization that deeply understands the higher education market.”
Byrne founded Poets & Quants in 2010 after serving as executive editor at BusinessWeek and editor-in-chief at Fast Company. Under his leadership, the franchise expanded to include five content websites as well as a conference business.
