We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Francois-Xavier Groleau to Business Development Director, Asia, completing our Asia Leadership team.
Francois-Xavier’s Crown journey began in the Netherlands in 2013. During his tenure, he has built on a wealth of experience in mobility and relocation – having previously spent three years working in Shell’s Expat HR team in the Hague. He has since held a variety of roles covering all aspects of our client relationships and customer experience, including a post in Paris supporting the implementation of a global account. In 2015, he moved back to Asia, taking on the role of Malaysia Division Manager – responsible for leading Mobility, Sales and Immigration teams. In 2018 he moved into a regional sales role for Southeast Asia.
Francois-Xavier begins his new role with immediate effect: assuming an expanded responsibility for the entire Sales function across Asia and reporting to Crown World Mobility’s VP of Business Development, Nick Sutton.
“I’m really pleased to see Francois-Xavier stepping into a critical leadership role for our Sales function. With his experience gained as our Regional Sales Manager, he has an excellent understanding of our clients’ challenges within the region, how to structure effective mobility solutions and proven performance that will support further sales growth for Crown World Mobility. Couple that with his own expatriate experience and mobility background, I’m excited to be working with him to execute on our growth strategy for the region,” says Nick.
Commenting on his appointment, Francois-Xavier says: “With the acceleration of changes in our industry and in our clients’ needs for talent mobility, it is an exciting time to be joining our Leadership team in Asia. Working closely with Nick Sutton, I look forward to leading our Business Development team in the region, developing and implementing our growth strategy.”
Impressively, Francois-Xavier also holds an LLM in International Trade Law from the Robert Gordon University, U.K., and an ERC GMS certification.
We wish Francois-Xavier every bit of success in his newly appointed role.
