Day to day activities are coordinated by EuRA's appointed CEO Tad Zurlinden and COO Dominic Tidey. Supported by the EuRA administration team, they are based in the UK. This is your team of EuRA professionals:
Tad Zurlinden is the CEO of EuRA. Tad has been part of the relocation industry for over 25 years, starting his career as a relocation professional in East England. He joined the UK ARP as a founder member in 1986 and was approached by the Board to take on its administration in 1987.
Tad was part of the original Steering Group charged with undertaking the feasibility studies of the viability of a pan-European relocation organisation in 1996. Since then he has worked with the Councils and Presidents of EuRA and is proud to have been part of the success of the organisation. Tad was then part of the original 2001 Steering Group charged by the industry to set up the European Academy of Relocation Professionals, or EARP, which has gone on to provide the first accredited European Training in 12 countries.
Tad is a well known figure throughout the international relocation industry and is frequently asked to speak on global mobility issues both to the corporate and HR communities.
Tad oversaw the development of the EuRA Quality Seal and is part of the ongoing strategy group responsible for its continued development. He also oversaw the development of an Association Management audit standard that will be implemented to qualify the EuRA Office as Quality Management compliant to ISO standards.
In recognition of over 25 years of innovation and dedication to the relocation industry, Tad was awarded the prestigious Relocation Personality of the Year Award by Re:Locate Magazine in 2011.
