Incisive Media wins big at 2023 PPA Next Gen Awards

Incisive Media has enjoyed significant success in the 2023 Professional Publishers Association Next Gen Awards, with three fantastic members of staff from across the business joining the class of 2023 winners: Investment Week editor James Baxter-Derrington, marketing manager Ellie Harris, and event content manager Hayley Nicholson.

The PPA Next Gen Awards recognise an elite group of 30 rising stars in UK specialist media, voted for by a panel of media industry judges. The awards were previously known as the PPA 30 Under 30 Awards.

Incisive is the sole B2B publisher to achieve three wins at the 2023 awards, and joins an inner circle of consumer publishing giants including Bauer Media, Future and Immediate Media with a total of three 2023 wins to their name.

Incisive is part of the Arc network, a fast-growing B2B media and events business with global operations across the financial, agriculture, food, sustainability, HR and education sectors. Incisive’s stable of brands includes Investment Week and BusinessGreen.

The trio of wins are testament to Incisive’s ethos of supporting its people, encouraging and nurturing innovation, backed up by an open and transparent environment.

“I’m deeply proud of these wins for James, Ellie and Hayley,” said Arc Europe CEO Jonathon Whiteley. “They typify Incisive’s people: smart, motivated, with a deep sense of integrity, and reflect our approach of nurturing home-grown talent in a supportive and respectful environment.”

The winners of the 2023 PPA Next Gen Awards will be celebrated at a ceremony at the Mondrian Hotel in London’s Shoreditch on Thursday, October 12.
