Lennert De Jong new vice-chair of IAM Young Professionals

IAM, the International Association of Movers, doesn’t need any introductions for anyone who’s active in the moving industry. The Young Professionals are a separate group within IAM. “As an affiliate group within IAM, we are enthusiastic go-getters under 40 who love to brainstorm,” Lennert explains, “and we have an ambitious program where we exchange ideas, network, launch business initiatives and devote time to charities.

Basically, our goal is to be a platform that promotes the personal and professional development of all members 39 and younger.” Elections were held in August for a new Young Professionals board. Previously vice-chair, Sheena Kiser of Seacorp was elected as chair and Lennert De Jong of Gosselin is the new vice-chair. “It’s a huge honor,” Lennert says. 


How do you network in times of corona?

“We’ve come up with new ways to still be able to ‘meet up’, such as happy hours and interesting online sessions. The online sessions were really a bright spot during the lockdown phase; it was a way for colleagues and friends in the industry to socialize. During the online session there was an opportunity to donate to Move For Hunger:  this charity focuses on the pandemic and supports people who have been hit the hardest by corona through donations to MoveForHunger. You can still make a donation to this cause, and I urge everyone to do this.”

Traveling exhibitions: old masters on world tour

In April, the American city of Auburn welcomed the Bernini & the Roman Baroque exposition. For this expo, fifty paintings and other objects created in the provocative style of Bernini, famous for the Trevi Fountain in Rome, travelled from Italy to Alabama. “This move owes its success to the tight scheduling and strict precautionary measures,” says Roberta from Gosselin Italy.

Goya goes on tour with Gosselin

Can you learn more about someone’s personality just by looking at their exterior?

Petr’s team in the Czech Republic was responsible for the professional move of the Fisonomista expo.
