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.
