DANBURY, Connecticut, Feb. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its strategic expansion to better serve its global relocation clients and their transferring employees, Cartus Corporation today announced the opening of its new service center in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Cartus is a leading provider of global relocation services and is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.
"The new service center in Sao Paulo is another important initiative for Cartus," said Ian Payne, executive vice president of Cartus and leader of the Brazil project team. "This is a natural expansion for us, as we already have significant experience in this market. In 2014 alone, Cartus managed over 1,300 assignee transfers both into and out of Brazil on behalf of our global relocation clients."
Including its Brazil service center, Cartus now has 19 global service centers located throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Last year, Cartus assisted over 171,000 relocating customers in nearly 150 countries.
Ranked as the seventh largest economy in the world, Brazil has become a critical strategic market in Latin America for Cartus.
"Our Brazil service center will serve the needs of some of our largest global clients," said David Pascoe, senior vice president, who will have responsibility for the new office. "The expansion will significantly benefit our clients by helping us better meet their specific relocation interests not only in Brazil, but throughout Latin America as well."
To celebrate the opening, Cartus executives held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on February 24.
