Expat Management Group

Pauline is Director Operations & Sales, head of the Relocation team of Expat Management Group (EMG).

Pauline has been working in the relocation industry since 1993, worked with several relocation companies and lived abroad herself in Taiwan during an assignment of three years.

One of her roles in relocation was the position of director/co-owner of one of the market leading relocation companies in the Netherlands where she offered relocation and immigration services to many multinationals including Shell, NAM, IBM, Ahold, GE, and Unilever. She is a member of Worldwide ERC, the mobility industry’s premier trade organization for talent management and global mobility knowledge. She holds the certification of Global Mobility Specialist (GMS), part of the training programs offered by Worldwide ERC.

Over the years, Pauline founded her own international network (Connecting To the World) of the most professional relocation service providers worldwide through which not only inbound but also outbound relocation services can be coordinated.

The relocations services we offer with EMG throughout The Netherlands are pre-move orientation tours to familiarize transferees with the new destination and get a good idea about the housing, the various schooling possibilities and life in general in The Netherlands. We search for temporary accommodation for the first few weeks, assist with home search either accompanied by one of our consultants or via a more do-it-yourself approach.

Besides that we assist with a long list of whatever needs to be organized for Settling-In: schooling and child care, assistance with opening a bank account, exchange of driver’s license, gyms, sports and cultural facilities, move management, car import, doctor/dentist/medical, insurances, internet connection, advise on mobile phone contracts and many more; whatever needs to be arranged to make the transfer to The Netherlands as smooth and pleasant as possible.

One of our main services is assistance with registration at the local authorities. Since EMG has their own specialized immigration department, this is one of the great benefits of working with EMG. The in-house coordination of all immigration requirements as preparation for the final registration makes the procedure the most efficient.

For each client, we develop tailor-made programs as a combination of our experience what needs to be delivered and the corporate policy of our clients. Our dedicated and experienced Mobility Coordinators pay careful attention to every transferees’ personal situation and requests and we are proud to share that in our way of working we aim for our five defined goals and qualities: professionalism, efficiency, pro-activity, empathy and enjoy providing the best service possible!
