To me, the job is different every day. Each employee I deal with is different than the ones before them, and have their own set of personal circumstances that need to be adhered to. 

Every person I deal with, whether they be a transferee, or a Corporate HR client, makes the job different on a daily basis.

I also revel to make sure my company’s employees are properly cared for during one of the most stressful times in a person life, moving, whether it be between offices, states or countries, with little to no impact on their family’s personal lives and the employee’s professional life. 

Moving people is the basis of the job and making them happy is what we need to do.

Cava de’ Tirreni, Campania, Italy

There is a saying in Naples that translates to, ‘If you can make and perform business in Naples, then you can do it anywhere’. And that is exactly what I have done! Over the past 15 years, I have honed and developed a very successful relocation service in Naples Italy from nothing.

Prior to this, I was with the United States Naval Facilities in Italy as a Civil Servant for over 20 years. Both these valid experiences mean I am a true fighter who never gives up, even when times are tough.

My personal goal is to be a good person, work hard and enjoy the company of others. Professionally, I have a Facilities Manager / Director background along with top quality customer service capabilities and supervisory skills, motivating teams of up to 35 employees. I consistently achieve goals and accept change readily.

As well as all of the above, I am able to pick up new skills and adapt to ever-changing circumstances quickly and easily, turning my hand to pretty much anything that is thrown at me. I am constantly striving for excellence and would love to see what I could do for you and your organisation.

Please contact me at or

and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Patrick Landers

People Advisory Services Partner @ EY



Having dedicated my entire career to #GlobalMobility, the last six years on assignment provided a real-world case study that reinforced what I had known academically for many years.

It became evident that there is simply no substitute for the invaluable knowledge and insights gained through in-person experience.

Patrick J. LandersIn September 2017, Ashu Rathor, CPA, MBA, MS reached out to me and requested a meeting in New York to discuss a role in Bangalore, India.  What was initially planned as a brief overnight trip turned into a 6-day stay in the Big Apple due to flight cancellations caused by Hurricane Harvey near my home in Houston.  In retrospect, this unexpected situation foreshadowed the flexibility and adaptability required for my new role situated halfway across the globe.

For the past 6 years, I have been privileged to lead the Integrated Mobile Talent team at EY‘s Global Delivery Services (GDS).  During this time, I had the honor of collaborating with GDS team members in India, Argentina, China, The Philippines, Hungary, and Spain while also serving stakeholders from nations in every region of the world.

Despite my 28 years of work in the Global Mobility business and extensive travel worldwide to meet with clients, it wasn’t until I boarded a plane from Texas to Bangalore, India (via Dubai) with my wife and four children that I truly comprehended the mix of nervous anticipation and exhilaration that accompanies an international assignment and a new career challenge.

While memories of riding in an Auto Rickshaw with my son, trekking over 100 kilometers in the villages near Nandi Hills outside Bangalore, participating in a game of Kabaddi during an office field day, and celebrating numerous national holidays with expatriate neighbors from diverse countries will forever remain fond, it was the personal discoveries I made that truly left a lasting impact.

One vital lesson I learned is that building a genuinely global team goes beyond geographical diversity.  It necessitates recognizing and addressing power disparities among different roles within the team. Moreover, embracing varied perspectives and valuing every individual team member are crucial elements in fostering a harmonious environment.

Another lesson came from understanding the power of driving collective impact within the team, while also realizing the profound and meaningful impact that can be made by simply devoting time and attention to individuals.  Building genuine connections and supporting the growth of each team member can make an extraordinary difference in their lives.

Although Covid-19 disrupted our global working patterns midway through my assignment, I learned that the most significant impact I could make often came from physically showing up, even if only via video connection, and actively listening to others. As a leader, I recognized that people sought guidance, but I discovered that my actions carried more weight than mere words.  By being present, engaged, and genuinely attentive, I was able to establish deeper connections and positively influence those around me.  This experience taught me the transformative power of leading by example and the importance of active, empathetic listening in leaving a lasting impact.

I am profoundly grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside a group of extraordinarily talented individuals during my assignment, including GDS leaders Ashu Rathor, CPA, MBA, MS , Priyanka Chaudhry , Mary Elizabeth PorrayArun Batra, as well as global leaders who invested considerable time with GDS, such as Marna Ricker, recently retired Kate BartonSusan PitterJoost SmitsSimon StanawayGerard Osei-Bonsu, Jason Mi, and numerous other global country leaders, partners, and team members I worked with along the way.  I deeply appreciate their contributions to my professional growth and success.

I also feel heartfelt appreciation for the team members I worked closely with at GDS, including Hemanth Kumar BommanahalNandini ChakrabartyNikhil Steven, GPHRRaghu Kumar TallamPreethi MohanraoKuruvilla CherianPrarthana RamprasadKavana DhamanTrina DialloVivek MishraAman RainaDilipa MaiyaSrinivas Siddhabatula, and Vanesa Politis.  I will sincerely miss the day-to-day interactions with this leadership team, as well as the frequent and spirited conversations with the senior managers and managers who are too numerous to individually acknowledge here.  Working with all of you has profoundly impacted my life.

I eagerly look forward to continuing to collaborate with many of the individuals I have met over the past six years, while transitioning into a role based in the United States where I will return to working with clients as they send their employees towards their own life-changing experience.

Current favorite quote: “Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” – Steve Jobs

We can sometimes sweep the dark side of expatriation under the carpet, but when we shine the light on it, the process is transformed!

Join us today as we shine a light on Repatriation and the life-reset that it can be!

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do”  Goethe

I work with returning executives, accompanying spouses and families who have completed overseas assignments.

I help them recover and debrief from their last overseas experience.

Re-entry can be a rough and rocky road, fraught with hidden expectations and tough choices.

Many suffer in silence, prolonging and postponing the terrific productive lives they could be enjoying

I solve this!  I help Returnees discover and articulate their next grand vision then take the building block steps towards it. helping them navigate their transition to create their next great adventure.

Specifically, I help them move from reminiscing to reinvention. 

After living in seven countries over four decades, I have returned several times and to different home countries am intimately familiar with the process and trained as a coach and mentor to support and assist others.
