Founded by Andrew Gray, David Gilroy and current CEO Ben Heald, Sift was to offer industry-specific information services that took advantage of the internet by integrating traditional news and web content. With Ben's background in accountancy it was decided this would be the first market for exploration… and so in 1997 AccountingWEB.co.uk was born. The formula worked, and in 12 months the circulation list had gone from 10 to 4,000, with revenues being generated from adverts in weekly email bulletins.
Sift Media now reaches over 700,000 registered business professionals every month and delivers over 5 million page impressions across its portfolio of 11 titles in the UK and USA. Not only are we continuing to develop some of the most loyal and engaged online business communities, we provide leading edge solutions for advertisers.
