Jim Holder named as new Autocar editor

Haymarket has appointed What Car? editor Jim Holder to become the new editor of sister title Autocar.

The move follows the appointment of former Autocar editor Chas Hallett as editor-in-chief of What Car? in May.

Holder said: 'It's an incredible honour to edit the world's most respected car brand and I'm looking forward to shaping its future across all platforms. Autocar has enjoyed impressive growth in recent years, especially online, and I aim to build on that success."

Autocar, which launched in 1895, currently has a print circulation of just under 45,000.
