The new office building, strategically located at the city’s IDA Ireland Business and Technology Park, reflects State Street’s commitment to Ireland and its confidence in the exceptional talent pool of the South-East region. The company’s growth trajectory aligns with the region’s prosperity, thanks to government policies and unwavering support from the IDA.

The official opening ceremony was graced by distinguished guests, including:

  • Minister for Finance Michael McGrath: Minister McGrath acknowledged State Street’s vital role in developing the international financial services sector in the South-East region. He praised the links the company has forged with third-level institutions.
  • US Ambassador to Ireland Claire Cronin: Ambassador Cronin celebrated the collaboration between State Street and the local community, emphasizing the importance of cybersecurity in today’s interconnected world.

A Bright Future Ahead

As State Street settles into its new Kilkenny home, the company looks forward to continued success, growth, and collaboration. The global cybersecurity center will play a pivotal role in safeguarding State Street’s operations and contributing to the region’s prosperity.
