In September 2016, Intouch Relocations celebrated its 18th year of being in business. What started in 1998 as a small start-up relocation company in Dubai has grown to become the leading destination services provider in the Middle East and Africa region.
When Intouch Relocations was acquired by Africa Capital in 2006, and later when Sebastien Besson joined the organisation in 2008, it set its sights on expanding throughout the Middle East. Having established itself well in this market, a strategic decision was taken in 2014 to join forces with the leading destination service provider in Africa, Elliott Corporate Relocations, to form one of the largest regional DSP’s in the world, with coverage in over 28 locations.
In June of 2016, Intouch Relocations acquired Cielo Mobility, further consolidating the DSP sector in the Middle East. Shirley Doran, who headed Cielo Mobility and has had more than 20 years of industry experience, joined the Intouch team as Business Development Director.
“We are proud of what we've achieved, thankful to all who have supported us and contributed to our many great endeavors and are looking forward to many more successful years!” - says Sebastien Besson, shareholder and CEO.
Corallie Pringle, CEO of Intouch Relocations, Africa (formerly Elliott Corporate Relocations) echoed Sebastian’s sentiment: “It is terrific to be part of such an exciting and visionary organisation and a truly phenomenal team”.
Commenting on what gives Intouch Relocations its unique competitive advantage, Kavit Handa, its Chairman, had this to say: “We understand, first hand, the complexities of doing business in the world’s emerging markets and have the experience to guide our clients every step of the way.”
So, what is in store for the future? Intouch Relocations is always looking to expand into new markets in the Middle East and Africa where our clients need us to be. Intouch Relocations is collaborating on developing exciting new technology that will be an industry game changer.
