  8. 8. INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCEINTERNATIONAL EXPERTISEThe Forum for Expatriate Management was founded in October 2008 by Brian Friedman.Formerly the Chief Executive Officer of both Ernst & Young’s and previously ArthurAndersen’s Human Capital practice, Brian has worked in Global Mobility and ExpatriateManagement for over 25 years.Our deeply-held belief is that service providers havetended to look at expatriate management throughthe wrong end of the telescope – that is, focusingon the service they offer the assignee. In reality, theissue needs to be considered from the perspectiveof the assignee and the in-house global mobilityprofessional.The real issue is moving an employee (andaccompanying family) from one location to another.It is not a question of relocation, HR, tax, schooling,banking or any other of the myriad issues facing theassignee. Rather it is all of them, with aninternational twist added in for good measure.To address this problem, we believe there is a clearneed for an online community of InternationalHuman Resource and Global Mobility professionalsthat is wholly inclusive in nature and open to bothin-house and service provider professionals alike. 7
