Friends, partners, customers, and industry insiders, we have some difficult news to share. On Thursday July 30, John Zinser, our CEO and fearless leader was taken to the hospital and a subsequent CT scan revealed a mass in his brain which required surgery on Saturday, August 1st. We are awaiting the result of the pathology report but there are some encouraging signs that the mass was benign. As a result of these events John is going to be on Injured Reserve for the foreseeable future. 

Due to the global COVID19 pandemic John cannot have visitors at the hospital and he is not able to take phone calls or respond to email at this time. Conditions at the hospital also mean that he isn’t able to receive gifts or flowers. 

John’s wife Julie is being supported by her and John’s family and of course by those of us at AEG as well.

The family requests that you respect their privacy during this time and that you direct any questions or concerns that you may have to

In the interim, Ryan Dancey will be assuming John’s duties as CEO, and the AEG leadership team of Ryan, Nicolas Bongiu and Luke Peterschmidt will be continuing to carry out the company’s 2020 strategic plan. We will be reviewing John’s inbox to ensure that any and all matters which were pending a decision from him or action by him are taken in a reasonably short time. Any business concerns that you may have can be addressed to as well.

All of us at AEG are hopeful that John will make a full and speedy recovery and be back at the helm soon. We thank you in advance for your show of support and positive thoughts.

The AEG Leadership Team.
