Our story.

Redactive was founded in 1994 by Chief Executive, Brian Grant.

Our name comes from the word ‘redact’ because we deliver content and experiences that make a difference. Only the most meaningful information, advice and inspiration makes the cut.

In March 2023, Redactive entered a new era when we became an employee owned business, investing our people in our future direction. Rewarding their commitment to help clients to achieve their goals through the power of content across print, digital and events channels:

Content that demands attention

Content that engages and inspires action

Content that enhances membership audiences’ lives

We call our approach ‘publishing with purpose’. Built from our heritage of working collaboratively with clients to support the communities they serve. Across the Redactive portfolio of over 40 clients in wide-ranging sectors, you’ll find us:

Advancing equine education and care

Aligning our work with each client’s mission and purpose is how Redactive started, and what continues to drive us forward. The only thing that changes is the breadth and sophistication of the platforms and channels we now use.
