About Us

Snider & Associates, Inc. was incorporated in 1989. The original company was founded in 1986, but reincorporated as Snider & Associates, Inc. in 1989. The founder, Chuck Snider spent the early part of  his career in the legal industry and founded Snider & Associates, Inc. originally to consult to the legal industry.


Our Story

One fall day in 1989, Mr Snider, (who has five children) was reading a bulletin that his wife brought home from her PTA meeting. In that bulletin it was mentioned that a firm in the recreation industry was looking for a local company to represent their products. Chuck contacted that company and set up a company/personal interview. Chuck, also being a self  proclaimed "gym rat", "bouncin' buddy" and volunteer coach, checked with some of his contacts in the school and park and recreation industry and inquired about this particular company as well as the recreation industry as a whole.  Low and behold, Snider & Associates, Inc. was hired and the rest is history.
