Tony has been with PAIMA for five years. Until then he had never been involved in the moving industry other than as a frequent customer as his family moved around the world with his father’s job, as an executive with DuPont. Tony too worked in a marketing role with the company before joining PAIMA in 2016.    

He said that PAIMA was started in 1984 by a handful of moving companies who had intended to join LACMA (Latin American and Caribbean International Movers Association) but were unable to.

The reasons for the incompatibility are now, largely, lost in the mists of time, but PAIMA has now grown to become a formidable organisation worldwide.
