Jonas Bonnier to step-down as CEO of Bonnier AB

Jonas Bonnier will leave his post as CEO of Bonnier AB at the end of 2013, after six years in the position. The company has announced that the process of finding a successor will begin immediately.
Beginning in 2014, Jonas will focus on his role as chairman of the Board for Bonnier Corporation, based in the US.
Carl-Johan Bonnier, chairman of the Board for Bonnier AB said: “During a period marked by huge challenges for the media industry and our companies, Jonas has done an excellent job. Not least of which is his rejuvenation of the management team, an important contribution for the future. Jonas has also actively driven the transition to digital business models. It’s heartening to know that Bonnier AB today is actually on sounder financial footing than it has been for a long time.”
“Much has happened since I took over as CEO,” says Jonas. “The world has undergone a profound financial crisis and the media industry must adapt to a new reality. Still, the interest in news and entertainment is at record highs and Bonnier has come a long way in reorganising for tomorrow. I’m looking forward to being even more actively engaged as chairman of the board for Bonnier Corporation, our US operations.”
Jonas Bonnier took over as vice president for Bonnier AB in January 2004 and as CEO for Bonnier AB in January 2008.
