Ciarán Sheridan confirms move to the Arc
Following weeks of speculation we can now confirm that Sheridan Insurances are officially the new anchoring tenant of the Arc in Drinagh.
Having traded for over 50 years from 93 North Main St, Sheridan Insurances are moving their office to one of Wexford’s most iconic buildings. The complex designed and built locally has never been occupied and it is thought that Sheridan Insurances will open its doors in early 2017. Drinagh is fast becoming the Financial Services and Insurance hub of Ireland with major national and international players such as Zurich, BNY Mellon and PFPC residing there, to name a few. The joining of such an iconic and modern building with a local company with over 50 years experience is testament that the growth in the financial services sector in Wexford is not only for big international players.
Sheridan Insurances was established by Paddy Sheridan in 1964 and has grown from a small office with 3 employees to one of the South East’s largest insurance brokers, employing a team of 60 across three offices in Wexford, New Ross and Kilkenny.
Ciarán Sheridan, Paddy’s son took over the reigns in the early 90’s and expanding the business has been his primary focus since.
“This move has been on the cards for many years, we just couldn’t find a location that was suitable for our business and our customers. Our customers need parking and ease of access. We feel that The Arc is the perfect fit for us and we are really excited about bringing the building to life” Ciarán Sheridan.
Sheridan Insurances has most recently launched the Sheridan Academy in an effort to provide local young people with the education, skills and experience to have a successful career in the Insurance Industry.
“We have so much raw talent in Wexford; technology has changed the way people buy insurance. We now insure people from all over the country, but we have chosen to expand our operations in Wexford. It has always been a great county to do business in and we are thrilled to be able to offer more employment and indeed more career opportunities in the county” Ciarán Sheridan
The Arc which has become a well known landmark in Wexford was built and designed locally and has never been occupied. Suzanne Freeman is currently leading the project management and design of the building. “I have done a lot of corporate fit outs but this building is special, it’s so unique I feel the interior needs to reflect this”.
While a move date has not been set, Ciaran hopes to be in the new building in early January 2017.
