“I couldn’t be more excited to lead Snap at this critical moment, and to have the opportunity to build on the proud history of the business and the efforts and impact of Richard Thame and the entire organisation,” Jarrett said.
“I have long admired the Snap brand and share the passion of the board in recognising the need to continue and enhance the transition path that’s been embarked on.”
Snap Franchising Limited chair Anne Cashman said the board’s unanimous decision to appoint Jarrett followed an extensive national search.
"Glenn is a highly respected professional and a recognised leader in the franchising industry,” Cashman said. “He possesses all the qualities one would want in a CEO – a comprehensive knowledge of the sector, significant hands-on experience, an increasingly deep understanding of our company and its strategies and an in-depth regulatory background.
“Everyone at Snap, from the 30 plus Franchise Partners, management and staff who have worked extremely hard to transition the business through the pandemic, coupled with the leadership, skills and experience that Glenn brings to the business will be critical to the continued growth of Snap Franchising as we enter a post COVID-19 world.”
Outgoing CEO Thame held the top job since 2019.
Snap is the oldest brand in Australian print franchising, with origins that go back to Perth WA in 1903 as the Watt family’s Imperial Printing Company. Snap Franchising has around 150 Snap Print-Design-Website outlets in Australia, New Zealand, China and Ireland.
