WEXFORD businessman Ciarán Sheridan has officially announced that Sheridan Insurances are moving from the town centre to become to the new anchor tenant of the Arc in Drinagh, an area that is fast-becoming a financial and insurance hub.
Having traded for over 50 years from 93 North Main St, Sheridan Insurances are moving their offices to one of Wexford's most iconic buildings, a complex built at the height of the boom that has never been occupied.
It's likely that the move, revealed by this newspaper several weeks ago, will take place in January. 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 among the businesses operating from the area. Ciaran said 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 three 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, Paddy's son took over the reigns in the early '90s 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,' said Ciarán. Sheridan Insurances 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.
