His uncle, Colin Snedden, played one Test for New Zealand; his father, Warwick Snedden, and grandfather, Nessie Snedden, both also played first-class cricket. His brother, Patrick Snedden, is a company director and philanthropist.
Snedden was the first bowler to concede 100 runs in a One Day International with figures of 12–1–105–2 from a 60-over match; it remained the record for most runs conceded until surpassed by Mick Lewis in March 2006. Snedden was generally a lower order batsman though he once scored 64 opening the innings in a One Day International. He also represented Auckland in New Zealand State cricket.
Snedden, a lawyer by profession, has spent the last few years as the Chief Executive Officer of New Zealand Cricket. However, in December 2006 it was announced that he would be leaving NZC to head the 2011 Rugby World Cup Organising Team.
