Respected Off Licence News editor Graham Holter has left his position to go freelance, after six years at the helm.

Respected Off Licence News (OLN) editor Graham Holter has left his position to go freelance, after six years at the helm.

Deputy editor Rebecca Evans will take over as acting editor until a new appointment is made.

Holter spent 13 years at William Reed Business Media, beginning life on OLN. After a brief stint as news editor on Morning Advertiser, he returned to OLN as editor in 2001, and went on to win several awards.

By the end, he was group editor for the William Reed Drinks Division,

encompassing OLN and also sister titles Wine & Spirit and Drinks International.

Lee Sharkey, Drinks Division publisher, said Holter would be “sorely missed” by colleagues.

“He was a fantastic editor at the helm of Off Licence News, was integral to the launch of Wine & Spirit and more recently the re-launch of Drinks International. His commitment, knowledge and passion for the drinks industry is unquestionable.”

Holter will continue to write freelance across the three titles and will also be on-hand as a consulting editor. Anyone wishing to see more of the man himself can visit his website.
