VALUES & QUALITY
i-Mobility Relocation was founded in 2009 right at the time when the economic crisis affected Europe as well. This proved to be excellent timing for a newcomer on the relatively saturated Dutch relocation market, as employers were re-thinking their outsourcing budgets and were curious what we had to offer. In February of 2009 the first clients started using our services and we have grown steadily ever since into the company we are now: a modest size and boutique style privately owned Dutch Destination Service Provider (DSP) that values short communication lines and commitment to personal service delivery. We welcome the business of Global Relocation Management Companies, yet today our preference still lies in the direct service delivery to employers in The Netherlands and building fruitful and long lasting relationships.
We recognize that relocation is a life-changing event. We put the employee needs first to make their relocation simple and painless, and transform what could be a stressful time into a positive and unifying experience for every family member. We help transferees navigate every stage of the relocation and each move is treated with great care and receives our full attention.
Our aim is:
to be the best high level and full service relocation partner for employers in the Netherlands and for DSPs like us anywhere in the world;
to have an impeccable reputation;
to create ambassadors for our company, through our employees as well as through our customers & clients;
to be the fifth EuRA Global Quality Seal holder in the Netherlands, which we proudly are as of February 2015!!
As a Destination Service Provider we benefit greatly from the ARPN, EuRA & ERC Memberships. The training modules offered by these branch organisations are extremely useful for the development of our staff and we make sure to always be represented at the yearly conferences. Being part of the network of Destination Service Providers throughout the world and building strong relationships with them enables us to assist our clients in the Netherlands with their outbound transfers as well.
We realise that our company is fortunately located in a safe and prosperous part of the world. Therefore, part of our revenue is donated to Médecins Sans Frontières so that the less fortunate can benefit from our combined efforts as well. www.msf.org
i-Mobility Relocation equals dedicated teamwork towards a positive relocation experience.
Meet the Team
Cristian van Breemen | Managing Director
Cristian has a background in marketing. She lived and worked in Moscow, Russia and Zürich, Switzerland.

Research shows that 1 out of every 4 employees leave the company within the first 12 months after reintegration; a turnover of 25%! Why is that, and what can be done about it?
Pauline has been working in the relocation industry since 1993, and was director/co-owner of one of the at the time largest privately held Relocation Companies in the Netherlands. She has been expatriated with her family to Taiwan. Upon return to the Netherlands in 2011 she has been active specifically in the field of outbound relocations: how to manage and make them successful.
