Coby Verschelling

Having been a relocation specialist since 30 years I can truly say a lot has changed in the profession in the decades past. What will never change is the connection with the client. The satisfaction in working closely together with on one hand employers and on the other their employees, achieving great results is very rewarding.
This is why I love my work.

Evi Verschelling
After finishing my law degree at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, I worked as an executive search consultant for a legal headhunter for 4 years. In 2017 I joined our company, which was growing fast at the time.

Within our company I am responsible for HR management, immigration, legal affairs and regular destination services. I truly enjoy working together with different companies, different clients and different cultures from all over the world.

What I love most about my job is that I experience the contact with my clients as warm and welcome and that I can truly help them and guide them through the relocation process. It is always very satisfying to achieve the goals we’ve worked closely together for.

I am very proud of our ambitious team and I am confident that we can continue our reliable support to current and future clients and partners!

Merel Verschelling-Hardjotinojo

After finishing my BA degree in Philosophy and Religious studies the opportunity arose to join the family business.
 Advantage of working together with my family is that we know each others strengths and weaknesses and we empower each other to be the best version of ourselves.

As operational manager, I take care of the operations within our company. I am also responsible for the planning and regular destination services.
What I love most about my job is that it is never the same. We work very closely with our corporate clients and their international employees.
People from different cultures face many adaptions when relocating to the Netherlands, but once everything is settled and we have achieved our goals, it is always a pleasure to see clients feel more and more at home.
