Local resident takes over as CEO at Snap Ireland

John Eager from Dunboyne....extensive experience in print industry.

John Eager, a resident of Dunboyne, has recently been appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Snap, the leading print, design and marketing services brand with 24 centres nationwide.

Mr Eager is a chartered accountant, qualifying in 1995 with BDO Simpson Xavier in Dublin. He has since earned an MBA from the University of New Hampshire in the US.

He has extensive experience in the print industry, having worked with the Adare Group for a number of years. Roles within Adare included corporate finance, as well as commercial and technology management. His experience includes a period serving as interim finance director of Adare subsidiaries, Prontaprint and Kall Kwik, in the UK.

His experience also extends to financial management of technology companies in Ireland, including closing several fundraising rounds and general management experience in a distribution business in Dublin. Following his return from the US in 2009, he was instrumental as interim managing director in the successful turnaround of Buy & Sell after its rescue from receivership.

Commenting on his appointment, John Eager said: “I am delighted to be joining Snap at this time. As Ireland’s leading print, design and marketing services brand, Snap has a great offering. A nationwide brand with 30,000 business customers across 24 locations, Snap is playing its role in helping Irish businesses recover from the recession. Snap is also embracing the new opportunities that internet technologies continually bring, particularly the emerging integration of print and web capabilities. It’s an exciting time and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

Snap was founded in 1984 by Irish businessman, Michael Kearney, and employs 180 people across its 24 Irish franchises. The company also has a production facility in Baldonnel, Dublin, employing an additional 27 people.

The company is a franchise business and is wholly Irish-owned and funded, with royalties paid to the Australian Snap Group annually. Each Snap business is owned and operated by individual franchise owners.
