Newland Chase Shortlisted and Speaking at FEM’s EMEA Summit

The Newland Chase team will be busy at this year’s Forum for Expatriate Management’s (FEM) EMEA Summit to be held in London, Thursday and Friday, 8-9 November, at the InterContinental London The O2. We’re shortlisted for awards, presenting an educational session, hosting a roundtable, and exhibiting.

Most exciting, Newland Chase is shortlisted for Immigration Provider of the Year and has one of our fantastic team members up for Global Mobility Rising Star of the Year in FEM’s prestigious Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards (EMMAs). Fingers crossed for the Friday evening black tie gala dinner where the winners will be announced. Congratulations to our rising star, Marleen Odunuga, of the London office, for being nominated for this great honour.

“Newland Chase is honoured to be shortlisted once again this year as Immigration Provider of the Year and to have one of our talented team members recognized as one of our industry’s Rising Stars. Well deserved, Marleen!”
