WHR Group, Inc. Becomes WHR Global

Global Employee Relocation Management Company Operates Under New Name to Reflect Global Presence

MILWAUKEE, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WHR Group, Inc. (WHR), a leader in the global employee relocation industry, announced today that the company will begin operating under a new name and will be known as WHR Global (WHR). This name change reflects how WHR has grown from being a US relocation management company to a global mobility brand, with offices also in Singapore and Switzerland. WHR’s global expansion was critical to serve its clients’ ever-growing needs for worldwide global relocation services.

The Switzerland office supports clients and their transferees in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, while the Singapore office supports the Asia-Pacific region. These international offices provide a range of services including pre-assignment, transition, on assignment and repatriation services to multi-language expatriate transferees. Overseas staff bring a variety of foreign languages including French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Malayalam, Lithuanian, Russian, Bahasa, Malay and Mandarin. Along with its U.S. headquarters in Milwaukee, Wis., WHR helps some of the largest global organizations and has relocated hundreds of thousands of employees to over 120 countries worldwide. WHR specializes in providing each expatriate with a dedicated relocation team, white glove service and 24/7 availability for their entire relocation journey.

WHR CEO Roger Thrun believes it’s a client obsession that has helped WHR become so successful. “We always make sure the client and their transferees come first. We believe that working in our clients’ best interests pays big benefits,” says Thrun. “Our number one objective is to provide the very best service that our clients and their employees will ever receive. Our niche is to make employees happier and more productive through a really stressful time in their lives by providing superior relocation services.”

This name rebranding does not change WHR’s ownership since its founding in 1994. As an independent organization, WHR does not have affiliations or partnerships with other organizations which allows WHR to act as a fiduciary to its clients. This ensures only the highest quality supply chain partners are utilized.

About WHR Global
WHR Global (WHR) is a private, client-driven global relocation management company distinguished by its best-in-class service delivery and cutting-edge, proprietary technology. WHR has offices in Milwaukee, Wis., Switzerland, and Singapore. With its 100% client retention rate for the past decade, WHR continues to position itself as the trusted leader in global employee relocation.

The funding comes at the perfect time for TIS as we look to expand our geographic footprint, push into new verticals, and extend core platform capabilities. We look forward to working with Kreos on executing our strategy.”

TIS CFO Bastienne Foeller echoed Erik’s sentiments, commenting, “Approval of this loan facility by TIS’ board and financial sponsors reflects a high level of confidence in the strength of our business, the capabilities of our team, and our overall strategy. With Kreos as our financing partner, TIS will have the ability to swiftly execute our strategic initiatives while having the flexibility to respond to new opportunities as they arise.”

For Kreos Capital, TIS represents both an early investment from Kreos’ seventh investment fund, and an ideal business partner to support with financing due to their consistent track record of growth. Highlighting TIS’ solid track record and prospects for future success, Sean Dunne, General Partner of Kreos Capital, added, “TIS is an industry leader in enterprise B2B payments, cash management, and fraud prevention solutions and continues to gain widespread market traction.
