LOS ANGELES – December 6, 2012 – Oakwood Worldwide, the global leader in corporate housing and serviced apartments, recently won the 2012 Asian Global Expatriate Management and Mobility Award (EMMA) for "Best Vendor Partnership." The Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) recognized Oakwood in Manila, Philippines, for its outstanding efforts to build a strong partnership with Convergys, a long-standing client. The award was presented at the Asian EMMAs Reception in Hong Kong on December 3, 2012.
The EMMA for "Best Vendor Partnership" recognizes an organization that uses innovative approaches to manage client relationships to work toward a common goal. The award also acknowledges how an organization positively impacts the client's business priorities, and improves customer service and cost management. In particular, EMMA judges cited Oakwood's "great customer focus and process flexibility" with Convergys.
In addition, FEM recognized Oakwood as Runner-Up for several other 2012 EMMAs, including "Corporate Housing Provider of the Year" in both Asia and the Americas and "Best Vendor Partnership" for Oakwood's robust partnership with Abercrombie & Fitch in Europe.
"We are thrilled and honored to be recognized, once again, with these prestigious EMMA awards in a number of categories and across every region," said Ric Villarreal, president of Oakwood Worldwide. "Our associates around the world work hard to provide the 'Oakwood difference,' offering customized solutions, personalized service and enduring trust. This recognition is a wonderful endorsement of their great efforts and our contributions to the global mobility industry."
In each of the three EMMA competitions, Oakwood was selected from an elite group of nominees. Each EMMA competition is judged by a panel of some of the most highly respected global mobility professionals from various industries and regions.
