Dublin Agency Joins Global Network of Independent Employee Advisory Firms

United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the leading independent employee benefits advisory organization in the United States, is pleased to welcome Glennon Employee Benefits & Financial Planning (Glennon) as its newest Partner Firm. Located in Dublin, Ireland, Glennon has been delivering independent, professional, creative and competitive insurance and risk management solutions for more than 60 years. Glennon’s success is due to the quality and efficiency of their services and their ability as a team to deliver total client satisfaction. Locally, Glennon is a member of Brokers Ireland, and internationally is a member of the Worldwide Broker Network.

“Glennon are delighted to join UBA as a Partner Firm and to be able to support our fellow UBA Partners. Employee benefits continue to be a huge growth area in Ireland and we continue to see significant foreign direct investment (FDI) from multinational companies choosing to locate operations here. Glennon’s EB team have been working within the FDI client space for over 40 years and have developed a deep understanding of the guidance multinational companies require when starting out in Ireland. At plan commencement, there is often a single employee, such as the CFO/CEO, and this is normally followed by a rapid headcount growth over a 6- to 18-month period. We look forward to assisting our UBA Partners with any queries their clients may have and welcome questions relating to Ireland-based offices and their local employees’ benefits packages,” says John Bissett, Chief Executive Officer, at Glennon Employee Benefits & Financial Planning.

As an international agency, Glennon understands complex global business issues that are key for a business insurance specialist. Glennon is acutely aware of the risks faced by clients operating in the multinational environment and their established global insurance partners and networks ensure that they deliver the appropriate insurance requirements to meet their client’s needs and expectations in an ever-changing market.

UBA President Peter Weber, M.S., CAE says, “As UBA grows internationally, it’s crucial that we have solid, reputable Partner Firms like Glennon. Their decades of leadership in Ireland, combined with their international memberships and understanding of best practices outside the U.S., make them an ideal fit for UBA’s strategic direction. Furthermore, Glennon’s experience is a welcome addition to the knowledge base of our current Partners. I look forward to the wealth and breadth of knowledge they will bring to our collaborative efforts aimed at improving people’s lives.”

As the newest Partner Firm of UBA, Glennon joins a network of employee benefits advisory firms that serve employers of all sizes across the United States, Canada, England, and Ireland. As a combined group, UBA’s annual employee benefit revenues rank it among the leading employee benefit advisory organizations in the U.S.
