LANDesk to open financial services centre
14 November 2011 | 0
IT security and service management company LANDesk is to establish an international financial services centre in Dublin.
The centre will create 15 new jobs and will focus on the management of international finance functions across EMEA, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. Functions managed from Dublin will include order to cash processing, accounts payable, payroll, general ledger processing, legal, audit and taxation compliance.
"This move to establish an international financial services centre in Dublin is an important part of our growth strategy," said Mark McBride, chief financial officer, LANDesk Software. "This new centre will become the primary financial operations hub in LANDesk’s international structure and will be responsible for up to 50% of worldwide revenue.
"The decision to locate in Dublin was based on a combination of a talented, multi-lingual workforce, a strong ICT and financial services cluster and the ability of Ireland to meet the needs of companies such as LANDesk seeking a hub for international operations. I would like to recognise the IDA and the Irish Government for their role in bringing this investment to fruition."
"LANDesk’s investment in Dublin with the creation of 15 new high-value jobs is excellent news for Ireland’s cluster of international ICT companies," said Barry O’Leary, CEO, IDA Ireland. This strong cluster uses Ireland as a base to support the growth of international business and LANDesk today becomes a welcome addition to this cluster. I would like to every success as it grows its operation here and offer the continued support of IDA Ireland as this financial services centre develops".
