A visit from the Belgian Ambassador
“Our business in Azerbaijan has experienced healthy growth in recent years,” says John Braeckeveldt, responsible for Gosselin Mobility’s activities in the Caucasus region. “The Gosselin moving team naturally grew right along with it. We recently recruited two new employees in the capital of Baku, Ahmed and Sevda. Ahmed Iskenderov was initially a mover; he indicated his desire to move forward in his career, and is now a move coordinator. Sevda Mardaliyeva is our new financial manager. The Gosselin team in Azerbaijan currently numbers 15 employees.”
“On January 24th, the Belgian ambassador Bert Schoofs paid us a visit,” John continues. “Bert is the ambassador for Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkmenistan. We gave him a tour of our new offices and warehouses, and he was impressed by our professional approach. He was on a visit to see the Belgian companies with offices here in Baku to boost morale.”
“There are still too few people who realize that Gosselin has extraordinarily good geographic distribution in the Caucasus and Central Asia. Gosselin is very well-represented in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Kyrghyzstan. We also have an excellent reputation with businesses and embassies here. High time to spotlight this even more!”
