As of 1st January 2021, Rene van Valen joins Gerson Relocation, the moving and relocation business, where he will take on the role of General Manager for the Netherlands.

Prior to joining Gerson Relocation BV, he was International General Manager of Van der Ent Group for 5 years.

Rene van Valen says; Having previously worked with Paul Evans, AGM Group Chairman, knowing many Gerson Relocation UK staff members personally and being offered a great opportunity to not only become General Manager, but to have a shareholding within the business and therefore be part of the strategic development, made it a very obvious choice to join Gerson Relocation BV, who recently purchased the business of Dijkshoorn based in Rotterdam.

I am looking forward to leading from the front and truly setting the pace for the growth of Gerson Relocation BV and Dijkshoorn, this is a fantastic opportunity for me and my new team. As part of AGM Group and moreover ideally located in the port to mainland Europe, Rotterdam, we can provide a full range of relocation services to international agents, corporate and private clients.

Being part of the continuous growth of AGM Group with a focus on The Netherlands is a great honour to me and thrilled to be part of the wider AGM Group team.

I look forward to working with old friends and making many new friends in 2021”

Paul Evans, AGM Group Chairman and Russell Start, AGM Group Managing Director commented:  We are very excited to open Gerson Relocation‘s new EU based centre in the Netherlands. We are equally excited to welcome Rene van Valen to our team. Rene, who we have worked with for many years brings a wealth of industry experience and knowledge that will be invaluable as we continue to grow and develop Gerson Relocation within the AGM Group. We see Rene as a tremendous addition to the Gerson Relocation team and his leadership will help us achieve our strategic goals, which positions our customers at the heart of everything we aim for. Good luck Rene, we look forward to working with you.”
