100 Jobs with New Marsh McLennan Innovation Centre

American professional services firm Marsh & McLennan has opened a new innovation centre in Dublin today, creating up to 100 highly skilled jobs.

The first of its kind for the company, the innovation centre will be a data and analytics development platform for Marsh & McLennan’s businesses – Marsh, Guy Carpenter, Mercer and Oliver Wyman – delivering industry-leading digital solutions to clients.

Present in Ireland for some 44 years now, Marsh & McLennan currently employs approximately 600 people here.

The company has expanded the responsibilities of its chief technology officer David Fike to include serving as president of the innovation centre, further to his relocation to Dublin late last year.

Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland said the investment affirmed “Ireland’s standing as a leading location for professional services companies to invest, innovate and transform through our highly skilled and talented workforce”.

With annual revenue of US$13bn and 57,000 employees worldwide, Marsh & McLennan provides analysis, advice and transactional capabilities to clients in more than 130 countries.
