New president for EuRA

May 18 | 2019

Michèle Bramstoft of Copenhagen Relocations has recently taken over as the president of EuRA (European Relocation Association).

Michele BramstoftShe took over from Andrew Scott of Dwellworks in the UK at the EuRA annual conference on 3 May, 2019 in Munich.

In a recent interview for The Mover, Michèle said she was very much looking forward to heading up the organisation and had greatly enjoyed serving on the Board for the last six years.

Michèle is an American who was born in Saudi Arabia and has lived her life as a ‘third-culture’ kid.  Having spent many years living in south-western France she moved to Copenhagen in 1995.  Feeling starved of her English mother tongue while in France she actively sought out English-speaking communities in Denmark.  It was while attending a women’s club meeting in 1998 that she met Nicole Stockholm, the founder of Copenhagen Relocations who, having recently started the business, was emigrating to Switzerland.  She asked if Michèle would like to take over the company.

“She said ‘Do you want to give it a go?’,” said Michèle.  “Even though I didn’t know everything about the business I decided to accept her offer. There were not many relocation companies in Denmark at that time.  It was a new industry.”  Today she heads up a successful business run by an enthusiastic team.

Asked about her vision for EuRA during her period as president she said she wanted to “make global mobility more famous”.  She said that many people didn’t know about the industry or how it can help them.  She had been working hard to increase the visibility of the industry in Denmark, “But now I have a bigger platform it will be a call to action to everyone who belongs to EuRA and other groups to be tooting our horns louder,” she said.
