Bonnier just bought a bunch of motorcycle brands, so now it needs someone to oversee them all. Andrew Leisner is their man. Leisner, most recently the publisher of Cycle World, has been promoted to vice president, group publisher of the new Bonnier Motorcycle Group.
In his new role, Leisner will be responsible for Cycle World, Motorcyclist, Sport Rider, Dirt Rider, Motorcycle Cruiser, Hot Bike, Baggers, Super Streetbike, Street Chopper and ATV Rider.
“Andy is an energetic and inspirational leader who empowers his people — all qualities that make him the perfect choice to lead our new group,” said Eric Zinczenko, Bonnier’s executive VP, in a statement. “His passion for motorcycles, his knowledge of the market, his competitiveness and his ‘need to win’ are the perfect formula for leading this important business unit for Bonnier Corp.”
