/24-7PressRelease/ - LAS VEGAS, NV, June 04, 2008 - Paul Fagan, ActionCOACH Master Licensee, has named Brian Deegan as the newest ActionCOACH franchisee in Ireland.
His office will be based in County Limerick covering the entire North Munster Region of Ireland, including Tipperary, Limerick, Clare and North Cork.

Deegan had a memorable corporate career with many accomplishments.
In his last position as Managing Director of Johnston Press in Munster Ireland, Deegan successfully integrated four acquisitions into the corporate environment.
Deegan was also instrumental in restructuring two loss-making UK acquisitions into one profitable business within one year.
"I developed strong management teams in each company I worked at," Deegan said.
Deegan was looking for a positive career change when he came across an advertisement posted by Paul Fagan.
"Having worked as a change management agent in six companies over a 15-year period, I felt the need for a change in my own life as well," he said.
