Goedele Van den Nieuwenhuysen, your personal moving guide
Goedele began her career in the moving industry at Gosselin in August of 2000, at the age of 23. She spent nine years as a move coordinator, gaining experience in the practical aspects of an international move, everything from A to Z. After all these years of practical coordination, in 2011 Goedele got into sales through consulting and selling moving services to private individuals as well as corporations. Assisting and advising people with their international moves, dealing with personal emotions, cultural differences and unique challenges on a daily basis are what make the job incredibly satisfying and one that offers great variety.
Quentin Van Meerbeeck, citizen of the world
A native of Antwerp, Belgium, Quentin has lived and worked in six different countries on three continents, has a total of eight international moves under his belt and considers himself a “citizen of the world”. Having done a study year abroad in Italy, fresh out of college, Quentin joined the international management trainee program at AP Moller – Maersk, the world’s largest container shipping line, where he met the woman who would become his wife, also a trainee. This entailed a move to Charlotte, NC, USA in 2004 for two years and then back to Belgium.
