November 12, 2020 – IDA Ireland welcomes today’s announcement by Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU) and Tata Consultancy Services (“TCS”) that they have entered into a strategic relationship related to Pramerica Systems Ireland Ltd. (“Pramerica”), Prudential’s Ireland-based business and technology solutions provider.
IDA Ireland notes and welcomes TCS’s intention to retain and transition the majority of Pramerica Ireland employees to TCS, continuing to provide services back to Prudential, while also strengthening its ability to provide nearshore services and meet the growth and transformation needs of its customers globally. Prudential will maintain an important presence in Letterkenny to support Prudential Global Investment Management (“PGIM”) and certain other functions.
CEO of IDA Ireland Martin Shanahan said: “20 years ago Pramerica began its operations in Letterkenny, with just eight employees. In the last two decades Pramerica has successfully evolved and adapted many times over to become a substantial and significant employer in the North West region. This partnership with TCS is another important chapter in this process. TCS is a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation with a global footprint that is committed to providing services out of the Northwest of Ireland and continue its successful 25-year relationship with Prudential. I wish TCS and Prudential every success with this latest evolution and assure them of IDA Ireland’s continued support.”
