Hong Kong, August 1, 2011 by Lars Lykke Iversen (Chief Executive Officer Santa Fe Group)


As advised on April 27th 2011, the Santa Fe Group entered into an agreement to acquire Interdean, Europe’s leading relocation services company. I am happy to announce that the acquisition has been completed. Headquartered in London, Interdean offers relocation and move management services from a total of 48 offices with 1,200 employees in 35 countries across Western and Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia.
This transaction follows Santa Fe’s recent acquisition of Wridgways Australia. Collectively the Santa Fe Group now offers professional relocation, moving and records management services through 120 offices in 50 countries and provides a single source solution to our customers and partners across three continents; Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Europe. Our 3,150 dedicated professionals are currently servicing approximately 100,000 relocations each year.
Santa Fe and Interdean have been close partners for a number of years and the merger is a natural fit. We expect our organizations and customers alike will experience added value through increased efficiency and an expanded service scope that focuses purely on serving our clients.
We are pleased that Interdean’s senior management team is enthusiastic about the merger and remains committed to the company. We have great respect for the entire Interdean organization and what they have accomplished in building Europe’s leading relocation services organization. Their experience and skills are key reasons behind this merger and will benefit our customers and the entire Santa Fe Group.
