About the Current President:

Eugene has been with Trimfold Envelopes Ltd for 40 years having joined the Company in 1975. Starting his career working in manufacture and production as an engineer and machine adjuster, Eugene worked his way up within the Company and was appointed Production Director in 1996. In 2009 Eugene was appointed Managing Director of Trimfold Envelopes, he hold a Masters in Professional Practice from DIT and continues to lead the Company as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable people within the envelope industry.

Eugene joined the IPF council in 2012 and became Vice President in 2014. “It is my intention to carry on the stellar work started by my predecessor Tom Clements of RPD Ltd. It is important for the Print Industry in Ireland to have a voice and I see the IPF as providing that voice. The industry has been through a particularly difficult time in recent years and will again face an uncertain future post Brexit. The IPF is here to help in anyway it can and would ask printers to engage with it. There is a wealth of experience on council and in the industry that are more than willing to be of assistance.
