Our Team

Our site was founded upon the belief that "Expats are their own greatest resource." Our community of expats has grown from thousands to hundreds of thousands. It is the expats themselves who are to thank for our successful growth. We are grateful for each expat who reaches out to help another expat or someone preparing to make the move. Whether you recommend a local school, offer advice about apartment hunting or support someone facing culture shock, we sincerely thank you for your efforts.
