Holden Mann

NERC / ERO Correspondent


Holden’s career in journalism spans 15 years and two continents. After getting his start as a TV news producer in Georgia, he moved to Asia in 2010 to attend the University of Hong Kong’s journalism program. That led to a stint at a children’s newspaper, followed by nearly five years at the Asian Venture Capital Journal charting the growth of the region’s private equity industry. Nowadays you’re most likely to find Holden at home in Atlanta with his wife and son, testing their patience with his latest recipes.
