“…we chose to work only with CAI due to their practical approach and their proven ability to deliver results. Whilst the major elements of the relocation were exceptionally well handled the most impressive thing was the way in which relatively small details were taken care of. The follow through was exceptional and the family continued to receive support for a good period after our move..”

In our increasingly globalized world, international businesses seek to fill their organizational needs by strategically shifting corporate talent from one place to another.

The cost of relocating talent – and the high expectations resting on the shoulders of these talented women and men – require that companies minimize risk wherever possible.
