Q: What is something people don’t know about you?

A: I was a former elite level gymnast for the United States.

Making a move on success with a clear vision

Moving around regularly during my years working as an investment banker caused me a lot of frustration. I founded MOVE Guides after a particularly challenging move from Asia to London to start my MBA program at London Business School. At that point, I was determined to make moving easier for everyone. With a clear vision in mind, I began MOVE Guides. It was exciting to embark on this journey and stare down at the face of uncertainty. I didn’t know if my vision was valid or crazy, or if I could make it happen. But I had confidence in myself and knew that I would do everything possible to make it a reality.

The idea has since evolved to transform not only the way individuals relocate around the world, but also the way companies manage and move their global talent – from new hires to projects to expatriates.

Nowadays, I am constantly back and forth between our two headquarters in London and San Francisco. I get my strength from my strong team, supporters and mentors. They encourage and inspire me to make MOVE Guides a success.

Brynne Herbert is 32 years old and based in both London and San Francisco. She is the founder and CEO of MOVE Guides, the leading provider of tech and services for employee relocation.
