Tomas Franzén, currently CEO of cable-TV-operator Com Hem, is taking the helm of Swedish media group Bonnier.
Formed in 1804, Bonnier AB is a privately held Swedish media group of 175 companies operating in 20 countries. It is controlled by the Bonnier family.
Franzén, 51, has been CEO of Com Hem, a leading cable operator and provider of broadband services in the Swedish market, since 2008. He has some 20 years of experience as a CEO in both publicly traded and private companies. “Bonnier is an international company, with a powerful base in Sweden, strong positioning and brands, and long-term thinking that’s appealing”, Franzén said.
Jonas Bonnier stepped down as CEO six months ago.
