The strategy that Bauer has adopted in the Irish market is one that really appeals to me – a passion for innovation, evolving technology and expanding its portfolio with exciting acquisitions and delivering excellence. I look forward to working with the Bauer team to realise that growth ambition”.

We are delighted to welcome Eamon to Bauer, his significant experience and passion for audio will be an excellent addition to the team and his appointment will further enhance Bauer’s position as a dynamic, collaborative and creative partner for advertisers,” adds Chris Doyle, interim CEO, Bauer Media Audio Ireland.
