Vice President, Global Marketing

Jerry Funaro, SCRP, SGMS-T

TRC Global Mobility, Inc.

Mobility is actually my second career: I started in the automotive industry, working for Ford Motor Company and later, one of the company’s outside communications agencies. I’ve been responsible for marketing and communications at several relocation management companies and still enjoy the fact that every single day is different. As my career has progressed, I’ve particularly enjoyed the opportunities I’ve had to serve on Worldwide ERC® committees and Councils and all the terrific people I’ve met across our industry while doing so. The industry has actually gotten more dynamic, reflecting the huge changes in the way we work, and I love being part of it.
