Insurance broker AON has bought online personal insurance broker Insure.ie. Insure.ie has a call centre in Dublin and more than 100,000 customers in Ireland across motor, home, travel and health insurance.
AON now employs more than 600 people on the island of Ireland at sites in Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Limerick and Mullingar.
Declan Cahill, a former director of AA Insurance in Ireland, will join the company as the new CEO of Insure.ie, subject to regulatory approval, but AON says there will be no lay-offs or job losses as a result of the deal.
AON recently opened its Global Centre of Innovation and Analytics in Dublin. This supplies research and development technology for the AON Group worldwide
