Originally a graduate trainee at Hambros Bank, in 1974 Hollick joined stock-brokers JH Vavasseur Group as chief executive. The company was later renamed MAI, and Hollick turned it into a successful media company. MAI merged with United Newspapers, publishers of the Daily Express and Daily Star, in 1996, forming United News and Media, of which he became chief executive.
CliveHollick, 56, was educated at Taunton School, Southampton and the University of Nottingham.
CliveHollick is today the chief executive of the merged group, which has become an international business information group with market leading positions in the US technology and healthcare publishing, news distribution and pharmaceutical, media and automotive market research.
CliveHollick, chief executive of United Business Media and a former advisor to the UK government, is to join the European team of US buy-out giant KKR in the spring.
CliveHollick, 55, on this account, is a disappointed man who had hoped to exercise political influence by virtue of being a media mogul - and didn't.
Hollick is a keen Europhile, and a leading member of Britain in Europe, but even ministers who might have been sympathetic to his world-view don't seem to have warmed to him personally.
One reason might be Hollick's robustly unsentimental approach to labour relations; not to put to fine a point upon it, CliveHollick has a reputation as a sacker, and Cherie Blair herself took the part of one journalist who was put out of his job on the Express.
