Eric Zinczenko Named CEO of Bonnier Corp.
Outgoing CEO Dave Freygang retiring, but will continue in a consulting role through 2015.
Zinczenko's rise has been fairly quick. He joined Bonnier in 2007 from Time Inc. after Stockholm-based Bonnier AB bought 18 enthusiast titles from the company that year. From there, he headed up Bonnier's Men's Group and then was promoted to executive vice president in 2013—shortly after Freygang was appointed CEO that year.
Freygang's roots go back to World Publications, where he was CFO until Bonnier AB bought the company in 2006, giving the company entré into the U.S. World Publications became Bonnier Corp. a year later when the Time Inc. deal closed.
