Exec Shuffle Hits Arbitron

Arbitron’s new president and CEO Michael Skarzynski has begun to reorganize the company’s executive suite, according to a Form 8-K filing with the SEC.

Two president-level positions were eliminated and one of the two presidents, Owen Charlebois, president of technology, research and development, is exiting the company March 22.  

Pierre Bouvard’s position as president of sales and marketing was also eliminated. Bouvard will remain with the company, but with the new title executive vp of sales.

During the radio ratings firm’s fourth quarter earnings conference call on Feb. 17, Skarzynski indicated that changes were being considered within the company and that layoffs were also a possibility.

An Arbitron spokesperson said there will be no additional comment on these changes.
