The North Somerset Business Leader launched originally in 2009 as the Weston Echo to provide an independent, unbiased online news and community portal for the area.
Over the last 12 months the Echo has evolved and focused entirely on business and enterprise in the region, gaining significant recognition in the business community and earning an enviable reputation for business journalism. A fresh new style, new name, and the launch of a brand new, 52 page glossy print magazine version reflects this evolution.
Covering every business sector, there is no more authoritative voice for business in the region. With an established online-portal and digital newsletter, and now a 52 page quarterly print magazine, the Business Leader engages directly with the business leaders, senior management, key influencers and officials in education and government in North Somerset.
The North Somerset Business Leader is a trading name of Weston Echo Ltd, based at 3 Bridgwater Court, Weston-super-Mare, BS24 9AY.
