Why Travel & Leisure Brands Are The Least Intimate

Buoyed by road trippers, leisure travel has held up higher. The Des Moines, Iowa-based mostly firm later bought Time magazine for $a hundred ninety million to billionaire Marc Benioff, chief executive of Salesforce.com Inc., and his spouse, Lynne Benioff, in the face of declines in print promoting and newsstand revenue. Fortune magazine, which was also part of Time, was bought to Thai businessman Chatchaval Jiaravanon for $a hundred and fifty million.
