TRC Global Solutions is now TRC Global Mobility!

 TRC Global Solutions is now TRC Global Mobility!  We selected our new name to emphasize our mission and exclusive focus on U.S. and Global Relocation services.

TRC Global Mobility “TRC Global Solutions suggested a more fragmented human resources services focus; a direction some of our competitors have taken but one we have consciously avoided,” said Sean Lickver, CRP, GMS, Executive Vice President. “It did not convey what TRC does and what we are all about to best advantage. TRC Global Mobility more accurately captures our mission and our exclusive focus on employee relocation and global assignment management. We chose to retain the “TRC” part of our brand, a tribute to our founding as The Relocation Center in 1987.”
