Delegates at Resi 09, the Property Week conference focusing on all elements of the residential property market, had their eyes opened to the benefits of furniture rental during one of the event's breakout sessions thanks to the advice of Roger Hollis, managing director of Roomservice by CORT.

"When the advantages of furniture rental were explained to them, many of the delegates that attended were surprised by the benefits on offer and the ease with which these gains could be made.  I think many questioned why they weren't renting their furniture already."

Thomson Reuters relocation interview

Why did you relocate to the UK?
Although I have a global role, which feasibly could be done from anywhere, I was spending a significant amount of time on business trips to our London headquarters.  I was effectively commuting from NYC for 2 years.  After a while, my London based boss thought it would make sense if I simply relocated.

How many people were in your relocation party?
There are four of us.  My wife Tina and our two children who were 4 and 1 at the time of the move.
