ATLANTA, GA., - While the global recession has caused many to rethink or ?put off' a major move, the business of relocating individuals and a company's entire workforce still requires large and small firms to move talent around the corner or across the globe.

 

Mindful of the opportunities as well as the challenges of capturing the available relocation business is real estate veteran Leslie Kane, recently named Crye-Leike, REALTORS new Vice President of Relocation Services in Atlanta.

 

"Despite the economic slowdown the world is a global marketplace where companies are hiring and moving personnel to address both the changes and challenges they face," said Leslie Kane, Crye-Leike Atlanta Relocation Director. "Now more than ever companies are looking for a firm that has a proven track record of success in relocation services with minimal stress and hassles."

Her previous work experience had her serving as a Special Account Manager with Corporate Choices.com, Industry Relations Director with Virtual Relocation.com and Vice President of Membership for RELO "The Independent Real Estate Network."

 

"Crye-Leike's Cofounder & CEO Harold Crye approached me personally about returning to the industry where my career started and it was hard to turn down," said Kane. "Crye-Leike has a proven track record nationally and it's a challenge I'm enjoying here in Atlanta to create the same presence that has been established in other Crye-Leike regions across the south."

 

While Kane is new to Crye-Leike she has known the organization for more than 20 years. She says she's always been impressed with how Crye-Leike markets itself on a national level and has created such a great brand in the relocation industry.
