This award, because it was determined by a group of both clients and peers, is extra special to us
Washington, DC (Vocus) October 18, 2010
Bolliger, Inc., a 100-year-old international moving company and the latest acquisition of The Secor Group–a global mobility, logistics and transportation company–has won The Forum for Expatriate Management’s (FEM) American EMMA Award for International Moving Company of The Year. The inaugural award was presented in New York at a ceremony following the FEM’s Global Mobility Summit.
The Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards (EMMA) were created by the FEM to celebrate excellence and innovation in global mobility programs as well as to recognize the performance of service providers in supporting the ambitions of corporate programs.
“This award, because it was determined by a group of both clients and peers, is extra special to us,” said Chuck Lawrence, CEO of the Secor Group. “We’ve spent a lot of time and resources in the last year to better align our services with what our customers want and need. This is a validation of those efforts and will serve as an inspiration for all Secor Group companies to continue to deliver award-winning performance.”
Secor Group companies were also finalists in two other categories: Most Innovative Use of Technology in Global Mobility for the innovative web-based relocation management system RedSky™, and Best Vendor Partnership for Security International’s work with the International Monetary Fund.
Awards were determined by a distinguished panel of 13 industry stakeholders that assessed the submissions received against the criteria set for each Award. Judges were not involved in judging a category where their company has entered or where the judge has a direct or indirect interest in any submission.
“We are honored to accept this EMMA, and we look forward to another award-winning year!” added Lawrence.
