Brendan had worked in this family business, founded in 2000 for over 5 years when the owner Martin told him he was ready for retirement and planned to sell up. Faced with the prospect of working for a new employer some real soul searching was required and never having owned a business the choice was stark; to make a bid or go through the difficult process of finding another job. Brendan having worked in the business for so long knew that Clickmedia was a great company, with a solid local reputation and a quality customer base.
In 2011 he told his family he wanted his own family business.
He knew he could do it; it was just a matter of believing in him and stepping out into unknown. Brendan’s prior experience was in corporate marketing in the finance industry, a big chunk of which was print buying. This was followed by many years as an account/business development manager in the print industry, he knew the trade, he knew how to manage accounts and almost 5 years on he knows a lot more about running a family business.
Martin was delighted that the Clickmedia name would carry on and that he had passed the business on to another family.
