H&R GROUP (RELO JAPAN) ACQUIRES ORIENTATIONS, INC.

The H&R Group K.K. is proud to announce that the Orientations Inc. Group is now part of the H&R family of companies, which includes Relo Japan K.K., H&R Consultants K.K. and Staffing Japan K.K.

On July 8th 2016, the H&R Group acquired the Orientations Inc. Group. Founded in 1981 by Beverly Mayhew and headquartered in Pittsburgh, USA. The Orientations Inc.

Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam.orientations-350x275

Orientations main services in these countries are:

      • Home Finding

      • Education Assistance
      • Settling-In
      • Tenancy Management
      • Expense Management
      • Visa and Immigration

Beverly Mayhew was looking for the best solution for succession of her legacy, and the H&R Group’s keen interest in extending their relocation expertise into more Asian markets made the acquisition a natural fit for both parties. The deal allows the Orientations Inc. Group to continue with confidence, stability and renewed vigor as they push ahead with this exciting venture. Orientations will continue operations without interruption in all countries after the official closing of the share transfer to the H&R Group on July 8th.

Steve Burson, President of the H&R Group and Relo Japan, will assume the CEO role of the Orientations Inc. Group through a wholly held subsidiary of the H&R Group established in Singapore; “Relo Network Asia Holdings Pte., Ltd”. Beverly Mayhew will retain her position as President through the transition, for at least the next 2 years, and Adeline Chur will continue in her role leading Asian operations as the Chief Operating Officer.
