Al Blumenberg, Vice President of Global Mobility Services at NEI Global Relocation, was recently elected to Chairman of the Board for the Worldwide ERC® Foundation for Workforce Mobility.

“Al’s contributions to Worldwide ERC® have been many over the years, including Past President and Chairman of the organization,” said Randy Wilson, NEI CEO.  “I know he is involved with other charitable organizations outside of relocation and is particularly pleased to lend his leadership experience and energy to the Foundation.”

The Foundation is governed by an elected Board of Trustees, each of whom serves on one of two committees:   Charitable Outreach or Scholarship.  Trustees, except for ex- officio trustees, serve three years, beginning in the month of January.

Also elected were Johnny Haines of Deloitte, GeLaine Joachim of Premia Relocation Mortgage, Kate Santo of WHR Group, Inc., and Jaime Suarez of PepsiCo, Inc.

In announcing the newest members of the Board, Chairman Blumenberg noted, “My fellow Trustees and I are very pleased to welcome these four outstanding industry professionals to our leadership team.  They bring considerable and wide-ranging experience—in addition to a commitment to the industry and our association.  These attributes will enhance the work we’re collectively doing to raise awareness of and engagement in charitable efforts on behalf of the global workforce mobility community.”

The Worldwide ERC® Foundation for Workforce Mobility was established in 2004. Its mission is to energize the global community through charitable giving. Its vision is that all communities touched by global mobility are actively aware of, inspired by, and engaged in our charitable efforts worldwide.

Since its inception, the Foundation has contributed approximately $250,000 in aid to such organizations as The American Cancer Society, The Chicago Abused Women’s Coalition, CliniClowns, Father Joe’s Villages, Give Kids The World, Habitat for Humanity International, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Project Hope; The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Walk the World, and more.
