Brokers Ireland Merger Update


Brokers Ireland today announced that the merger of the Irish Brokers Association (IBA) and the Professional Insurance Brokers Association (PIBA) has now been completed. Almost all legal aspects of the deal have been signed off and all staff have moved to the Brokers Ireland’s offices at 87 Merrion Square, Dublin.

IBA’s CEO Ciaran Phelan has also announced that since the merger is now complete he will be leaving Brokers Ireland to pursue new opportunities.¬†Speaking today, Ciaran said: ”Having worked over the past ten years to build IBA into the successful entity it is today, I was delighted to facilitate the recent merger with PIBA”.

‘It has been a pleasure to work with broker colleagues over the last decade and I am confident that the newly merged organisation will represent brokers interests in an even stronger and more unified capacity. I will continue to oversee that the transition to Brokers Ireland will be a smooth transfer over the next few months before starting a new phase of my life” commented Ciaran.

PIBA CEO Diarmuid Kelly has assumed the role of CEO of Brokers Ireland and thanked Ciaran for the hugely important role he has played in making the merger happen. “It has been a pleasure to work with Ciaran throughout the Broker Ireland collaboration process. He will be a significant loss to the new organisation but we all wish him the best and continued success for the future.”¬†¬†
