PLANO, TEXAS (Jan. 29, 2016) – Altair Global, a global mobility management company, announced today the acquisition of NOVA Relocation Group, a leading relocation services agency in business for 25 years. NOVA was founded in Brussels, Belgium, and has offices in Paris, France; Brussels & Ghent, Belgium; The Hague, The Netherlands; and Preston, United Kingdom.

Kathryn Cassidy, Executive Vice President of Global Client Services, said, “In addition to the incredible talent of their employees and experience and tenure of their management team, NOVA’s locations and services complement Altair’s global growth strategy and initiatives. Both companies have reputations for high levels of customer service, integrity, and a passion for what they do.”

Walter Vermeeren, Managing Director for NOVA, stated, “Altair and NOVA have a similar business philosophy and culture and so this is definitely the right fit for both companies. Our clients will benefit from additional international locations and services and new IT capabilities, while Altair clients will benefit from having a local presence in Europe.”

“It has always been part of our transformation plan to expand into Europe and other areas. This opportunity with NOVA could not have been more perfect for both of our companies. The synergies created by this acquisition will allow us to continue to support the growing global needs of our combined client base,” said Chad Sterling, President and Chief Financial Officer at Altair Global.
