Karim IrrgangGeneral Manager

“Right from the beginning the team at Konen & Lorenzen made me feel their open and transparent relationship they have towards their clients but most important, their full support.”

“I have worked with Konen & Lorenzen (KL) for around 6 years. I have found both the company and the associates who I have dealt with to be both professional and productive. KL really take time to understand the client’s needs and take a personal interest in the successful relocation of the chosen applicant. They are with you throughout the whole interview and selection process. They talk with the client several times throughout, ensuring that all parties are content with the process. KL thoroughly vet all applicants ensuring all of the client’s criteria is met, and give open and honest feedback into the availability of the market. I would not hesitate in recommending KL and will certainly keep on using them in the future, we have a strong and trusting partnership.”
