David Zinczenko Departs Rodale

David Zinczenko is leaving Rodale after 20 15 years with the company. During his time there, Zinczenko was responsible for elevating the Men’s Health brand. According to a release from Rodale, the departure was “mutual” and ahead of Zinczenko’s contract ending. The New York Post says that the rumor floating around town is that Zinczenko left to start a new company with Steve Perrine, who is also leaving Rodale.

With Zinczenko leaving, some changes were announced. Bill Phillips has been named vice president/editor-in-chief of the Men’s Health brand; Peter Moore has been promoted to vice president/editor-in-chief of Men’s Health; and Adam Campbell has been promoted to editor of MensHealth.com. Both Moore and Campbell will report to Phillips.

In a release, Maria Rodale, CEO of the company, said she was thankful for Zinczenko’s “creativity and leadership,” and she “truly wish[es] him all the best as he grows in new ways and in new places.” But when Adweek asked if Zinczenko had become unafforable, she was much more curt. “What he wanted we really couldn’t give, and I’m not talking about money,” Rodale said. “It was time for him to move on.”
