Chas Hallett has returned to What Car? as editor-in-chief, with immediate effect.

He has spent the past five years as the editor of fellow Haymarket mag Autocar, collecting a PPA magazine of the year award along the way.

What Car? previously employed Hallett as deputy road test editor, features editor and content editor between 1994 and 2002.

In a statement he said: “I started my career as a motoring journalist on What Car? so I am hugely proud and excited to be returning as editor-in-chief of Britain’s biggest and best car buyer’s guide. We now have the team to make What Car?‘s magazine and website even bigger and better.”

What Car? publishing director Andrew Golby added: “Chas returns to What Car? with the highest possible credentials. We have ambitious plans for the brand, and it is vital that our editorial product is of the highest possible quality. Under Chas’s leadership I am extremely confident of us achieving all we hope and more.”
