Relocate Awards Winners Announced

Judges

Each year, our Relocate Awards judging panel, made up of independent experts, reflects the diversity of those working in the world of relocation and international assignments and the wide range of suppliers and professionals engaged in supporting relocation and mobility.

This year's talented team of judges is no exception. All are distinguished figures in their fields. We are grateful to them for contributing their time and expertise to making the awards a success.

Two or three members of the panel will judge each category. The exception is the Relocation Personality of the Year award, the winner of which will be chosen by all the judges.

Judges are not invited to judge a category their company has entered, and sponsors, supporters and professional endorsers do not influence the judging process.

This year's judging panel includes:
