We've counted the votes, deliberated, cogitated and digested the results, and
finally - after a heated debate - we've drawn up a list of who we feel are the

90. George Thompson - Harrison Scott Associates
Why Described as a sound bloke with his finger on the pulse of the industry,
Harrison Scott's Thompson is one of the leading recruitment agencies in print.
Praise abounds for his honest advice and integrity. One voter describes
Thompson as a vital person for the UK print trade who links people and
businesses together. In a role where contacts are king, one commentator says

man himself, he's well-known for liking a good time, but there's a serious side
that likes to give something back to the industry and to society.
