Arthur Drewry, recently named CMMB Representative for Region 6, was raised as a British expatriate and in 2000 began his career in the household goods relocation industry in the Middle East. Drewry got his first taste of the international moving business while working with Gulf Agency Company, a respected international removals company. There, he played an integral role in handling corporate relocations for Exxon Mobil, Occidental Petroleum, Elf Petroleum, and Chevron Phillips. During that time, Drewry earned his FIDI Diploma, the highest international education designation in the international relocation industry.
After completing his tenure at Gulf Agency Company, Drewry returned to Great Britain, where he managed a branch of Britannia Movers International PLC.
Two years later he was on the move again, this time to Canada, where Drewry took the helm of Taylor International, a subsidiary company of Taylor Moving & Storage Ltd. Taylor International is a market leader in the corporate relocation industry.
More than 80 different corporations and relocation companies use Taylor Moving and Storage for their local, long distance, crossborder, and international household goods moving needs.
“Canada presented an exciting career opportunity for me,” Drewry says. “I was appointed manager of Taylor International, which provided me with the exciting challenge of expanding and growing the division. Five years later, I’m a little older and perhaps—dare I say—wiser. Business is thriving and my family and I have settled well into life here.”
Having lived and worked on three different continents and experienced firsthand the pressures of relocating and integrating into different cultures, Drewry brings a broad and unique understanding of the international relocations industry. Along with his extensive experience and expertise in the development of worldwide agent partnerships, quality control systems, logistics management, and corporate move management, he looks forward to working with his fellow IAM members.
