Ben Eaton, CEO Starleaton.

Fresh from the successful integration of DES, which more than doubled the size of Starleaton, Ben Eaton is looking for new fields to conquer and points to growth coming from the Melbourne business, which is on track to be equal to, if not larger than, it’s Sydney headquartered market.

Eaton’s brother Josh moved south last year to lead the Melbourne team.

“Josh moved to Melbourne last year, which is the market that’s growing the strongest. He said to us that a new shiny building is not what it’s about; it’s about how we get the Eaton injection into that team. So he packed up and moved and the results are clear. In November we reported our biggest month on record in both revenue and profit in the history of the company taking in to account all historical data of the combined entities.”

In the March/April issue of Print21 magazine, Ben Eaton talks with Patrick Howard about the dynamics and motivations behind his family-owned Starleaton graphics supply enterprise.
