Weichert Relocation Resources Inc. has reached an agreement with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP to acquire its Global Mobility Services practice in the United States, positioning Weichert Relocation among the country’s leading assignment management and expatriate administration service providers.
The acquisition will enable Weichert Relocation Resources to offer mobility services that allow companies to consolidate their domestic and international relocation programs under one single supplier.
“This acquisition is compelling on two fronts,” said Aram Minnetian, president and CEO of Weichert Relocation Resources. “First, it significantly broadens our footprint and scope of capabilities. Secondly, it allows us to integrate and leverage PwC’s expatriate administration expertise, resources and experience to offer our clients an even wider range of international assignment services, and the convenience of a true one-stop solution for virtually any global mobility need.”
PwC’s staff of assignment administration professionals will join Weichert Relocation Resources’ U.S. operations, the companies said.
Weichert Relocation Resources provides workforce mobility services to 500 clients throughout 120 countries. The company offers domestic relocation services, international assignment services, real estate management and resale services, financial services, payroll and tax services, household goods move management services, consulting services and group move management services.
