April 21, 2008 // Franchising.com // MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. – Aram Minnetian, President of Weichert Relocation Resources Inc. (WRRI), one of the world's leading relocation and assignment management companies, announced that BP, a global energy leader and one of the ten largest companies in the world, has selected WRRI as its exclusive North American relocation services provider.
"When companies such as BP entrust their most valuable asset—their mobile workforce—to WRRI, it is perhaps the greatest validation that our Value Proposition is resonating with the world's most recognized and respected organizations," said Minnetian. "We look forward to helping BP meet its workforce mobility, leadership development and business expansion goals."
This selection strengthens WRRI's foothold in the energy market, and also represents an expansion of WRRI's partnership with BP, as WRRI has handled BP's relocation activity throughout Canada since 2004. According to Jim Schneider, WRRI's Senior Vice President, this foundation of success gave BP another compelling reason to select WRRI to handle all of its North American activity.
"Our ability to create and implement the most innovative relocation solutions has helped us become a valued, strategic partner to clients like BP," said Schneider. "We're proud to meet their exacting standards, and will strive to continue to exceed their service expectations."
BP's account will be managed by the client services team in WRRI's Houston office.
