D&B, previously Dun and Bradstreet, plans to create 100 jobs in Dublin.
D&B is recognised as a supplier of commercial information and insights on businesses from its global database containing more than 140 million business records in over 120 countries.
The 100 jobs are backed by IDA investment, and the project will be fully operational by the middle of next year.
Located in Sandyford, south Dublin, the business unit will have responsibility for the collection and processing of data on subject companies.
Making the announcement, Tánaiste Mary Coughlan said: “I am delighted to announce the establishment of D&B’s Centre in Ireland.”
This calibre of operation “is in line with the Government’s continuing efforts to position Ireland as the leading European location-of-choice for innovation-led and knowledge-based global investments”, she said.
The group is highly reputable and its decision to locate in Dublin “is a clear endorsement of Ireland’s global reputation in the international business services sector”, she said.
IDA boss Barry O’Leary said the group’s reputation within the business community “is second to none” and its presence here will represent “a tremendous addition to our global business services base”.
