An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald recently joined Bill Graebel, CEO of Graebel Companies Inc., to announce the official opening of the company’s newly established Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Financial Shared Services and Operations Centre in Dundalk. The creation of 125 new jobs within the next three years was also announced. Recruitment is already underway. The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

Graebel, headquartered in Denver, Colorado, is a leading provider of workforce and workplace mobility services for Fortune 500 and Global 100 firms in 165 countries.

The EMEA Financial Shared Services and Operations Centre in Dundalk will provide a broad range of finance functions across multiple levels of experience, including general ledger, treasury and compliance, as well as customer support roles. It also will serve as an additional operations centre in Europe to support Graebel’s EMEA headquarters in Prague, and the growing needs of Graebel’s clients in managing their international talent mobility and relocation programs.

Welcoming the announcement, An Tánaiste and the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald said: “I’m delighted to welcome a company of Graebel’s calibre to Ireland and their creation of 125 jobs for Dundalk over the next three years. A key priority of this Government, through our Regional Action Plans for Jobs, is to create jobs in rural Ireland and this significant number will be transformative for Dundalk. Known globally for its end-to-end relocation solutions, Graebel’s establishment here will also greatly assist foreign direct investment (FDI) relocating to Ireland and Europe. Just two weeks ago, Ireland was named as the best country in the world for attracting high-value FDI for the sixth year in a row. Having Graebel here will only enhance our offering and I wish Graebel and their team every success in Ireland.”

Commenting on the announcement, Bill Graebel said, “Ireland gives Graebel a strong gateway to the European market. Our location in Dundalk will allow us to better serve our international clients and their employees’ needs, as we provide our duty of care that is central to our values. We look forward to working with the Irish government and IDA to further grow our business internationally and create jobs in Ireland for many years to come.”

Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland welcomed the announcement, saying, “The decision by Graebel Companies Inc., to establish its EMEA Financial Shared Services and Operations Centre in Dundalk is very welcome.  IDA Ireland has worked closely with the company in recent years to win this investment for Ireland. The types of roles being created coupled with strategic value of the centre is in line with IDA’s strategic objective to win high quality investments in regional locations.”

Graebel’s more than 800 employees worldwide provide efficient, fully integrated solutions that make it easy for companies to relocate their talent and facilities around the world in order to improve business performance, lower costs and grow in existing and new markets.
