The Ardonagh Group, a top 20 global insurance broker and the UK’s largest independent insurance broker, has announced it will open the Ardonagh Global Data and Risk Management Centre this month, bringing 60 new highly-skilled, data science and analysis roles to Mullingar.
The Data and Risk Management Centre will deliver data-driven insights to Ardonagh’s clients worldwide, helping its 7,000+ colleagues offer tailored solutions from over 100 offices globally by providing a highly diversified range of financial services-related products and services across the full value chain.
Minister of State at the Department of Trade Enterprise & Employment Robert Troy said, "While we have had a difficult 18 months, today’s significant announcement is a testament to the quality of talent and opportunities for companies investing in the Midlands. It is a positive endorsement for Mullingar and a real sign that brighter days are ahead. The Midlands is not only a great place to live, but also an excellent location for businesses to establish and thrive. I wish the Ardonagh Group every success in their expansion into Westmeath."
CEO of The Ardonagh Group, David Ross added, "I am delighted to announce the launch of the Ardonagh Global Data and Risk Management Centre and am particularly pleased it will be located in what is such a special place for me. Having grown up in this area I am deeply aware of the quality of the talent pool in the Midlands and I believe this initiative will make it one of the key areas globally for research into risk. The Group’s broad understanding of our clients and their businesses is our key differentiator, and this Data and Risk Management Centre will help us design bespoke solutions that really answer their needs."
