Gallagher has named Ben Redmond (pictured above) as the head of private client for Ireland in a bid to expand the broker’s clientele and enrich its product range within the high net worth (HNW) segment.
Based in the Dublin office, Redmond will extend his services nationwide. Gallagher’s operations in Ireland have significantly expanded, marked by the acquisition of INNOVU in June 2022, resulting in a team of 275 risk professionals and positioning the firm as one of the largest insurance brokers in Ireland.
According to his LinkedIn, Redmond arrives with over a decade of brokerage experience within the Irish insurance sector, having most recently served as the private client manager at Castleacre Insurance. His prior role as the business development manager at Frank Glennon Insurance Brokers saw him spearhead and manage the firm’s private client team.
In his new capacity, Redmond will oversee the growth of Gallagher’s team dedicated to serving HNW clients, along with the development of novel products and bespoke services. Recent reports indicate a surge in the number of high net worth residents in Ireland, signifying an increased necessity for safeguarding their valuable assets.
“It is great to have Ben joining our team, and his appointment demonstrates our commitment to bringing the very best of talent and experience to our clients in Ireland,” Gallagher Ireland CEO Ronan Foley said.
