Isabel lived as an expat child until she was 19 years old and returned to her home country, Portugal, for university studies. By the age of 13 she had lived in 6 different countries (Brazil, Portugal, Bahrain, Spain, Luxembourg and France), been to 5 different schools and learned 5 different languages - it was my "normality".
As a professional, Isabel started working in destination services firstly at international events, later developing and specializing in global mobility.
She created her first DSP company in 2003, paving her way into a recent industry in Portugal.
As founder of Moving-ON Professional Mobility, the motivation to innovate and diversify mobility support services came first in the agenda. As a result, Isabel worked on a research & development initiative, on the new business area of online relocation support services and launching the world’s first relocation e-shop in 2013.
Diverseness also came with expanding the operation to new African locations, with offices in Mozambique, where experience and industry knowledge become a motivation to continue recreating and a challenge for continuous improvement.
“I soon understood the crucial role of being part of EuRA, reaching to global partners and alliances, to the latest industry trends in a changing world, undergo training, network and learn. Industry meetings over the years have proved to be the most valuable assets in my relocation career, in the consolidation of my company and in the professional development of my teams.”
Process improvement oriented, customer-centered and motivated by new projects, in 2008 Isabel was part of the Eura Development Committee, a committee helping set up the guidelines and contents for the Eura Global Quality Seal.
What can Isabel do for EuRA
“As a member of the Executive Group, I am very much looking forward to contributing to ensure our industry is at the forefront of global mobility solutions in a demanding, technological and modern environment”
