A unique relocation service....
We the Partners, Fiona Gibbon and Julie Sabin, established Dovetail in response to an overwhelming demand for a more supportive experience when relocating from overseas.
Our combined experience as executives, partners and mothers means that we have a unique understanding of the priorities for families on the move, particularly those with children.
Julie has a degree in Modern Languages and a Postgraduate Diploma in International Marketing. She worked for 15 years in the Oil and Automotive Industries for both Castrol and Ford's Parts Operation. Her career led her to relocate all over the world including France, South Africa, Switzerland and Thailand. Her experience provides a unique perspective on the challenges of relocation, how to deliver exceptional customer service and the importance of clear communication.
Fiona lived and worked in France before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser, working for 10 years at Grant Thornton. Her background in Corporate Accounting provides our clients with the rigorous financial tracking they need throughout the relocation.
Andy Sabin joined Dovetail in 2008 following a 20 year career as a London based Stockbroker at SBC and Citigroup. He now works in Residential Property Development and manages our Property Searches for clients who wish to purchase.
We also employ part-time consultants all over London and the South East, our on the ground local experts who we rely on for the latest property and school developments.
We at Dovetail understand the huge difference between finding a home and feeling at home. We pride ourselves on getting to know our clients in the early relocation stages and acting as their on-hand “expert friend” both before the move and as they settle in. We save valuable HR time by enabling busy executives and families to hit the ground running – our benchmark is success and happiness for the duration of the assignment.
Our service philosophy is based on a simple principle:
“The trailing spouse is the backbone of the international family, the emotional rock. She’s also the last person anyone thinks about until all the clean underwear runs out.” Source: http://www.expatexpert.com/
