Olly WehringBiography

After 11 years of doing he doesn't know what, Olly Wehring's “Eureka!” moment arrived in 2003, when he decided to retrain as a journalist.

Following several freelance stints at such hallowed publications as the Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Retail Week and The Daily Mirror, Olly boarded the good ship just-drinks in October 2003 as news editor.

Within only two years, he had moved up to the position of editor – a role he has assumed ever since.

Olly likes working for just-drinks, and likes drinks.
