Accounting and Business wins major award

ACCA is delighted to announce that Accounting and Business's Adam Williams has been named publisher of the year at the Periodical Publishers Association (PPA) Awards held in London on 16 June 2010.
A total of 22 awards were handed out on the night by comedian Sean Lock at the 1950s-themed ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Mayfair's Park Lane. More than 1,000 guests from across the magazine publishing industry gathered for the 30th anniversary of the event, which celebrates editorial and publishing excellence.
Adam faced stiff competition - there were more than 700 entries in the awards which are regarded as the Oscars of the publishing industry. ACCA's Jackie Dollar was also shortlisted in the Designer of the Year category and Accounting and Business was shortlisted for Monthly Business Magazine of the Year.
The judges commended Adam: 'He was faced with a difficult job... where only a genuine transformation would make a difference. He achieved this and turned the business around, producing some very impressive cost savings along the way'.
Barry McIlheney, PPA chief executive, said: 'With a greater number of entries than last year, our congratulations go to all those who made it to the shortlist. However, special praise must be reserved for the winners who stood out from an exceptional crowd.'
