MetLife opens Galway technology campus
7 November 2017 | 0
MetLife has officially opened its global technology campus in Galway, where it plans to take on 200 IT professionals.
Including its existing office in Dublin, MetLife’s presence in Ireland will grow to more than 500 employees once recruitment in Galway is complete.
Michel Khalaf, president of MetLife US and EMEA, said: “MetLife’s new global technology campus builds on our significant presence in Ireland which is the hub of our European insurance businesses. Just as we have done in Dublin, we look forward to growing our workforce here in Galway in the coming years and contributing fully to the local community.”
IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said: “The opening of this new global technology campus is a significant step for MetLife, represents a substantial investment by the company and demonstrates very clear commitment to Galway and the West Region.
“MetLife announced last year that it was establishing this campus with the creation of 200 jobs and this state-of-the-art permanent premises will allow them to continue to recruit up to that capacity. It shows too that Galway has both the required skills for global companies such as MetLife to establish and grow here and the property solutions they need.”
