Co-Founder & President | pascalg@pbconnect.org

Pascal was born and raised in Basel, Switzerland. Soon after he finished his apprenticeship in Basel, he moved to Chicago in 1998. In 2008, he relocated for his employer at the time to Atlanta where he lived for 4 years before returning back to Chicago, the city he calls home. He worked 27 years in International Logistics in various management roles.  During that time, he had the opportunity to travel all over the United States and various countries throughout Asia and Europe.  Working for several International corporations he has seen the lack of relocation support provided for individuals and families moving to the United States. The last 22 years in the States has allowed him to build up a professional and social network in many industries. When it comes to factors of relocation these connections have provided him the understanding of cultural differences and language barriers which can be a challenge during a move. He has now chosen to dedicate his time, efforts, and expertise to support individuals and families with the relocation process.
