National acquires The Relocation Consultancy (TRC)

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 01 November 2021


UK: The Relocation Consultancy has been acquired by National Corporate Housing and will form part of its Coppergate Global division.

Jenny Hogan and Sharon Gill of TRC will join Coppergate, enabling it to offer complimentary destination services in the UK.

The team expansion is the most recent in a series of strategic growth moves for National, as the company pursues expansion plans for multiple services lines in response to increasing customer demand worldwide.

Hogan, who has been the principal owner and managing director of TRC since 2009, said: "After our first call with National, I was taken in by their enthusiasm, warmth, and commitment to exceptional service. I always had visions of growing TRC but worried that our personal service would be diluted by doing so. After speaking to National, I realised that under their umbrella, we could retain the bespoke service we offer our clients and at the same time expand to offer this unique service to National clients too. National is committed to expanding its global footprint, and part of this vision includes offering in-house, high-quality, bespoke relocation services for its clients in the UK. National shares the same ethos and commitment to people and service as TRC, and I cannot think of a better match. I am excited and enthusiastic to join with this wonderful team of people."

Kerrie Wiseman, National's SVP destination, rental and travel services, said: "We have admired TRC and the quality of service they provide to their clients. We feel fortunate to have found such capable, service-oriented professionals to meet our clients' growing need for destination services in the UK. Jenny and Sharon are the ideal foundation for this and National's ongoing strategic global expansion plan."

Hogan will serve as managing director of Coppergate Global's UK division. She joined TRC in 2005, following a career with Barclays Bank, and led the relaunch of TRC in 2006. She is a graduate of the Managing Global Mobility program administered by the European Academy of Relocation Professionals and has held the designation of Freeman with the London Company of Entrepreneurs since 2015, where she volunteers on the Communications Committee.

Gill, who has been with TRC since 2014, will assume the role of operations manager.
