GAAPWeb – Your future in finance and accountancy

GAAPweb is pleased to announce the winner of its competition to find a new slogan for the website.

Glenn Risdale of MyTravel fought off all competition with his slogan ‘GAAPweb – Your future in finance and accountancy’.

The competition was launched in November to replace the previous strapline - ‘GAAPweb – Accounting and Finance’. The prize for the winner was £150 to spend in a restaurant of the winner’s choice. Glenn very generously decided to donate his prize money to Changing Faces, a charity supporting and representing people who have a disfigurement of the face or body.

Winner, Glenn, said: “It's been a real pleasure dealing with the GAAPWeb staff both on the competition and arranging the donation to Changing Faces. I know the money will be put to good use at the charity, and I wish both organisations success in the future”

Melissa Buxton, Head of Product and Marketing, GAAPweb, said: “We actively promote and value feedback from the people who use our site, so we thought they were the obvious choice to produce a slogan. We are delighted with Glenn’s choice and feel it represents the purpose and personality of the website.”

GAAPweb, acquired by Trinity Mirror in 2005, is the UK's leading specialist jobsite for accounting and finance professionals. We reach over 90,000 specialist candidates each month and send over 30,000 job alerts every day to people who know we understand the sector.

James Partridge, Chief Executive of Changing Faces, said: "We're delighted that Glenn Risdale has asked for his prize to be donated to Changing Faces. With this money, we can offer a place to a child on a group workshop to learn new skills, especially how to deal with other people's reactions, and boost their confidence and self-esteem."
