On Tuesday, the New York Post published an article with the headline “New York Times’ new chief executive will lead zoo in Racine, Wisconsin.”
The article was written by Andrew R. Zuckerman, a former vice president at the zoo and chief operating officer for New York’s Parks Department.
Zuckerman was hired to be the new chief operating and financial officer of the Racine Zoo.
He will report directly to Mayor Bill Peduto.
The announcement was made in an email to the Racines’ community on Tuesday evening, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Zuwoner was previously CEO of the Atlanta Zoo, and is now chief executive officer of Racine’s zoo.
Zuwonar has been an executive at the Atlanta Zoos for more than 15 years.
He previously served as president of the National Zoo, vice president of parks at the Washington Zoo, chairman of the American Zoo and Aquarium, and chief executive of the Milwaukee Zoo.
Zwymel is expected to be named the new zoo’s chief operating, financial and communications officer.
Zwymels experience includes serving as the zoo’s executive director and executive director of the San Francisco Zoo, as well as the president of its animal services department.
In 2015, the Milwaukee Zoological Society announced that it had sold its stake in the Atlanta zoo to New York-based Colony Capital Management.
Zuzymel, who had been the president and CEO of Zoo Atlanta, took over as the new president and chief financial officer in 2016.
