Alan Kohler

1952 -

Kohler became one of the most significant leaders of the new digital media environment in the early years of the 21st century, creating two commercially successful new digital-only media mastheads. The sale of the Australian Independent Business Media company he founded to News Corporation in 2012, for $30 million, provided tangible evidence of that success and marked Kohler as one of Australia’s first successful pioneers of journalism’s digital age.
