Hollie Clemence, The Week UK

Hollie Clemence is the UK executive editor. She joined the team in 2011 and spent six years as news editor for the site, during which time the country had three general elections, a Brexit referendum, a Covid pandemic and a new generation of British royals. Before that, she was a reporter for IHS Jane’s Police Review, and travelled around the country interviewing police chiefs, politicians and rank-and-file officers, occasionally from the back of a helicopter or police van.
