The independent voice of the global moving industry


Lars takes an appointment with Graebel

Oct 09, 2016
Graebel Companies has appointed Lars Lykke Iversen to its Board of Directors.


Iversen recently retired from the Santa Fe Group, where he served as CEO for 27 years and built the firm into a major global mobility services provider.  

“Lars brings such a unique skillset and perspective to Graebel’s Board,” said Bill Graebel, CEO of Graebel Companies. “He’s lived and worked all over the world, understands the challenges and dynamics of delivering best in class relocation services across these markets, and is also uniquely attuned to the opportunities that lie ahead of us. He will be a key strategic partner as we think about the growth and evolution of our company on a global basis.”  

Lars’ career spans more than 40 years in the relocation and transportation industries. Prior to his tenure at Santa Fe Group, he served in a number of executive finance roles at East Asiatic Company (EAC) as well as at Johnson Walton Steamships. He’s served as the president of the Overseas Movers Network International (OMNI), as a Board member for the Worldwide Employee Relocation Council (WERC), and also as a Board member of FIDI Asia, an international alliance of movers and relocation service providers. He’s been inducted to the Hall of Honor by the International Association of Movers and also received a Meritorious Service Award from the WERC.  

Born in Denmark, Lars served in the Danish Queens Guard, holds a degree in economics and business administration, and completed additional professional training at leading European business schools Insead and the International Institute for Management Development (IMD). He’s lived in Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada and is fluent in both Danish and English.  

“Having known and been a partner in business with Bill for many years, I am honoured to join the Graebel Board of Directors,” said Lars. “Graebel’s service delivery model is second to none. I look forward to contributing my global knowledge and experience in working with Bill and his outstanding team, as they take Graebel to the next level in the global mobility market. I believe much opportunity lies ahead for Graebel.”  

In July Lars also joined Alfa Quality Moving & Relocation Group of Companies in Denmark as a Director of the Board (see The Mover, August 2016, age 42).
