Davenport into the OLN hot seat

Off Licence News has appointed Rosie Davenport as its new editor.

She returns to OLN, which she first joined as deputy news editor in 2001. Davenport was promoted to drinks editor of sister title The Grocer, before becoming features and brands editor on on-trade title The Morning Advertiser.

Davenport said: "OLN is the leading voice in drinks retailing and I am looking forward to ensuring it continues to steer readers through the industry's changing landscape."

OLN publisher Lee Sharkey said: "Rosie comes to us with a wealth of experience in journalism as well as in the drinks industry and will be a real asset."
