Q&A with Bonnier's Eric Zinczenko, Magazine Media Industry Leader (and Goalie)
"Eric is the CEO of the Bonnier Corporation, a multimedia giant with brands such as Popular Science, Outdoor Life, Cycle World and Field and Stream. He said he is very passionate about authentic content from a trusted source and that he has faith in the consumer that they want to continue to get their news from vetted, professional journalists. Eric has attended the Stanford Executive Management program and is about to attend the Harvard Advanced Management Program, of which only 80 CEOs from around the world are selected to attend.
