CEO, VP Out at Zimmerman

By Patrick Coffee 


This morning we confirmed changes at the top of the Zimmerman organization. Over the past seven months, three C-level staffers have departed:

  • CFO Mike Schweiger
  • CEO Pat Patregnani
  • VP Fred Zuckerman

Zuckerman was the most recent party to leave the agency in June; we have no official statement from Zimmerman regarding the current status of these three or the search for their replacements.

A refresher: these changes come approximately one year after the last major reshuffling at the agency. In the first half of 2013, EVP Chris Apostle left after just a month to occupy the EVP/CSO position at Integrated Media Solutions while Patregnani went from President to CEO and Andrew Varga, former CMO at one-time Zimmerman client Papa John’s, assumed Patregnani’s old role.

A quick look at the shop’s site finds that the profiles in question have indeed been removed and that no one currently occupies the CEO or VP positions.

In other Zimmerman news, this week brought word that former client hhgregg is now current client hhgregg.
