Chief Executive Officer: Paragon Graphics Services
Paragon Group is a successful Customer Communications, Identification and Graphics business with sales of c.€650M and operations across Europe. The Group is growing rapidly through acquisition and organic growth and has an ambition to double in size and increase profits dramatically in the coming years. We have recently aligned the group into three operating divisions: Paragon Customer Communications, Paragon ID and Paragon Graphics Services.
To facilitate and drive this growth the Group now wishes to appoint a CEO for Paragon Graphics Services who will take direct responsibility for the Division. This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to play a key role in shaping the Group’s Future as a core member of the senior executive leadership team.
The newly created Paragon Graphics Services Division (PGS) will consist of a broad range of companies stretching across Europe including the UK, Sweden, Norway, Spain and Benelux. Sales for this Division are currently around €100M and our plan is to drive additional sales through organic growth and acquisition activity in the coming years.
In addition we must drive improved operating profitability for each of the businesses in the Division. Reporting to the Group Chief Operating Officer and based in Dublin or Europe (in a country where we have existing Paragon Graphics businesses) this is a dynamic and challenging role. The Group’s divisional structure will facilitate more focus on segregated businesses within the organisation. Clearly this creates an excellent opportunity for a driven individual to join the team in this dynamic organisation at a senior level.

With a strategic focus, the successful candidate will develop a work environment to optimise the growth and performance of the division.
