Insurance Times publisher Sarah Tunstall has been named Business and Professional Magazine Publisher of the Year by the Periodical Publishers' Association (PPA).

The PPA Awards are the Oscars of the magazine industry, and the Award was presented by Clive Anderson at a gala evening at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

With more than 5,000 business magazines in the UK, Sarah's award places Insurance Times right at the top of UK magazine publishing.

Managing Director Jonathan Shephard said: “This is a wonderful success for Sarah and for the whole Insurance Times team. The mission is to continue our commercial success hand in hand with our continuing programme of editorial improvements. This is only the beginning.”
