Director of Inthepaper.co.uk Meets Gordon Brown
Durham, England July 3, 2008 -- UR-InThePaper Ltd, the largest personalised newspaper company in the UK, today announced that their Managing Director, Rebecca Philipson, has met the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, for the second time in two years. 24-year-old Rebecca was invited by Durham MP, Hilary Armstrong, to celebrate the success of local entrepreneurs at a private reception held at Number 10 Downing Street on June 23rd, 2008.
Miss Philipson, who has been running her Stanhope-based InThePaper.co.uk business for three and a half years, was given a guided tour of Number 10 before making her way to the garden for drinks. The Prime Minister thanked Rebecca and the other select guests for their significant contribution to the British Economy. Miss Philipson first met Gordon Brown in 2006 when she was named 'Enterprising Young Brit of the Year'.
"The experience was overwhelming," Rebecca commented. "To have met the Prime Minister twice in as many years is a clear indication of how successful we have been at In The Paper."

Miss Philipson plans to continue to grow her business and will soon be establishing her personalised newspaper product in the United States.
