(New York, NY) October 28, 2019 – Furnished Quarters, the largest independently owned and operated provider of global corporate apartments, has earned an Own It! Award for Excellence in Accountability for the temporary housing division from NEI Global Relocation. The award is presented to service partners who’ve gone above and beyond to meet the needs of NEI and its clients.
Own It! stands for Offer value, Win the customer’s confidence, Now, not later, Inspire others with a positive attitude and Take full responsibility. Doris Kampf, Senior Director of Global Sales at Furnished Quarters, accepted the award on behalf of the company at the NEI Global Partnership Alliance (GPA) Summit on October 22 in Omaha, Nebraska.
In the award entry, Furnished Quarters shared the story of a last-minute request for housing in Bogotá, Colombia – a challenging market many providers aren’t comfortable handling. The company used its valuable connections and relationships to present options to NEI within just an hour of receiving the request, confirming the reservation by the next morning.
“NEI is proud to recognize and acknowledge key service partners who have proven they are truly committed to delivering on our company’s mission of Service Exceeding Expectations to our clients and their relocating families,” said Al Blumenberg, SCRP, NEI SVP of Global Client Development and Service Partner Relations. “As we celebrate our seventh year of the NEI Global Partner Alliance Summit, we are very excited to present these service excellence awards to outstanding partners, like Furnished Quarters, who achieved the highest scores in their category!”
