PRESS RELEASE: Global Mobility Solutions and Partners Donate 55,000 Meals to St. Mary’s Food Bank at 2018 Forum
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, USA, February 15, 2018 – Global Mobility Solutions (GMS) recently hosted its annual forum, an event recognizing members of its Premier Alliance Network – an elite partnership of relocation service providers. This year’s forum was held on Thursday, February 8, at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale. This year’s theme was “Service Never Goes out of Style,” and the forum focused on recent developments within the relocation management industry.
“GMS continues to grow, and much of the credit is due to our superior network of partners,” said President Steven Wester. “The relocation industry constantly changes, so keeping informed of trends is critically important. Our forum provides an ideal platform to share practical business insights, honor top-performing suppliers within our network, and extend support to worthy causes in the communities we all serve. Our 2018 event succeeded on every point.”
The forum featured a Client Panel where clients were introduced to over 130 Partner Network attendees along with the specific topic they were asked to present. Clients then described their relocation program in terms of the specific topic, and took questions from the participants. The clients followed this process for about 10 minutes at each of five different tables, allowing the attendees to hear from all clients about the following five different relocation industry topics:
- New Tax Law affecting Corporate Relocations
- Attracting and Retaining Talent in Challenging Locations
- Requests for Proposals
- Aligning Talent and Mobility
- Formalizing Short-Term Assignments
GMS recognizes outstanding contributions to its clients through Partner of the Year awards. The primary criteria for these annual awards include customer satisfaction and on time service – key indicators of quality and reliability among relocation providers.

The 2018 Partner Forum also provided an opportunity for GMS and its Premier Alliance Network to show their shared commitment to social and philanthropic causes. This commitment includes significant efforts to end hunger in local communities. This year’s forum featured both an online pre-forum raffle and an in-forum raffle resulting in a donation of over 55,000 meals to St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix. Raffle prizes, which were all donated by members of the Premier Alliance Network, included an iPad pro, a weekend getaway (including accommodations, car rental, and $500 gift card), two individual smart home starter kits, a bluetooth speaker, a Nintendo switch, and a personal drone.
“We are truly grateful to GMS and its Partners for their continuing support with this gift,” remarked Lisa Notaro, Chief Development and Communications Officer at St. Mary’s Food Bank. “Here in Arizona, there are nearly 500,000 children who literally do not know if they will have dinner tonight. This gift will help feed 55,000 of them a nutritious meal.”
