Having graduated from the University of Limerick, Séamus decided to pursue a career in the oil and gas sector starting with a trading position with Irish National Petroleum Corp (The State Oil Company).
Séamus then joined ConocoPhillips operating out of the London office where he was senior Gasoline trader dealing regularly with diverse international clients.
Upon leaving ConocoPhillips, Séamus decided to pursue entrepreneurial ventures in domestic and foreign markets focusing on opportunities in both commodities and real estate markets.
His investment and activity in commodities provided the opportune background to participate in the growing gemstones market.
The culmination of this interest led Séamus to establish Voltaire Diamonds. Using both his extensive business experience and his accreditation by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Séamus is perfectly positioned to deliver the technical and commercial expertise relating to the procurement of precious gemstones.
