Blog: Olly Wehringjust-drinks - Back to full strength

Olly Wehring | 23 July 2008

Finally. Yes, finally, we here at just-drinks towers are able to unveil (that's right, unveil) our new deputy editor.

With Jessica Harvey having shifted three months ago to a publication within the William Reed empire, we've poached one of theirs.

Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to introduce... Chris Mercer.

Chris has been involved in the drinks industry in a journalistic capacity for over three years. He joins us from Drinks International, Wine & Spirit AND Off-Licence News (busy boy) where he was online editor.

Coinciding with me moving out of the Big Smoke, I'm sure many of you who work in – or are visiting – our fair capital, will meet Chris in the fullness of time. Meanwhile, if you'd like to say hello virtually, drop Chris a line at news@just-drinks.com.

I'll just put my feet up for a bit.
