Terry Snow, CEO of Bonnier Corporation announced today that Dave Freygang has been promoted to Senior Vice President of the new Special Interest Division. Previously Freygang worked as Vice President, Publishing, for Bonnier’s Trans World and Water Sports titles. His new position will combine almost 40 brands across several categories.
Snow said that Freygang’s ability to improve brands is what lead to the promotion:
Dave has been an exceptional, energetic leader in the company’s rapid evolution over the years, with a long record of success. In his publishing roles here, Dave has made his titles the leaders in their markets, with record growth in revenue and profits. I have full confidence in his ability to strengthen our overall business in his new position.
Some of the titles that Freygang will now oversee include Islands, Scuba Diving, and Boating. You’ll never guess what each of those magazines is about.
