O Publishing & Media was originally founded by Richard Herrick, former Head of Commercial at Leeds Utd. Richard, who has over 12 years of experience within the sports industry, has secured over 50 publishing contracts with leading rights holders across many sports during the short time in which the company has been established.

This has meant that O Publishing & Media has become the largest business of its kind in UK sport with an annual turnover of £4m and over 2.5 million publications throughout the UK and Ireland.
