Barry McIlheney, CEO of the PPA, said: “Incisive Media is a major player among business information providers and we are very pleased that they are taking back their seat at the PPA Business table. I’d like to offer a warm welcome to Tim Weller, his team and all at Incisive Media, and I look forward to their involvement in the PPA over the coming years.”
Tim Weller, Chairman and CEO of Incisive Media, said: “The PPA plays an important role in bringing publishers together; in promoting their interests and defending them on the issues that matter. By re-joining the PPA, we ensure that Incisive Media’s voice is heard, and that we play our part in advancing the dynamic business information sector – a crucial part of the UK’s creative economy.”
The PPA promotes and protects the interests of print and online publishers of consumer and business media in the UK.
