Graebel announced this week that Graebel President and COO Bill Graebel has become a board member of The Overseas Moving Network International (OMNI). OMNI is a global consortium of the most professional independent moving companies in the relocation industry. OMNI’s purpose is to maintain and support an international network within which its members can co-operate with each other, providing world class moving services while enhancing their individual profit opportunity.
“Graebel is the top tonnage booker, it makes sense that Bill is on the Board in order to give us his views for the tonnage and how it could be improved,” Gabi Mainzer, Member Services Manager, OMNI. There are currently eight members on the OMNI board. Members serve a minimum of three years and a maximum of eight years.
“My goals are to help elevate the appreciation and recognition of the OMNI brand as being the most relevant and effective global moving network in the world and to work closely with Fédération Internationale des Déménageurs Internationaux (FIDI) and Employee Relocation Council (ERC®) in the development of a first-of-its-kind certification process for destination service providers in the relocation industry,” said Bill Graebel.
As a member of OMNI, Graebel gains the advantage of working with other co-owners in the brand that dedicate their corporate missions to being the finest service providers in their respective geographies throughout the world. As a result, Graebel is able to produce a premium level of door-to-door service by engaging like-minded firms that become a fully functional extension of Graebel’s service philosophy throughout the globe.
“The industry is undergoing constant change due to many factors, including the need to transact shipment data in even more sophisticated and real time ways, and the need to meet the service expectations of large multi-national corporations that expect their partners to routinely deliver exceptional service anywhere in the world,” said Bill Graebel, “it also provides Graebel with a global platform to become a catalyst for change in evolving service delivery paradigms that are aligned with the needs and expectations of a very sophisticated global customer base.”
