Peter Phippen wins PPA’s Marcus Morris Award 2011.

BBC Magazines managing director Peter Phippen has been named as the winner of the PPA's Marcus Morris Award 2011 in recognition of his services to magazine publishing.

Phippen announced this week that he will step down from his current role when BBC Magazines moves to new ownership following the completion of the takeover deal between BBC Worldwide and Exponent.
