Crystal Abbey — From temp to director: a 360-degree view of Cartus


Starting out as a temp who sat at a desk in the hallway and filled out those pink WYWO slips, Crystal graduated to full-time employee and learned to use voicemail—then videoconferencing—then online communications that are shared worldwide. Working in Cartus’ Consulting Services practice, she witnessed the evolution of the relo industry and changes such as the growth of international assignments. Now, as a director of business development, she gets to use all the knowledge that she’s accumulated over the years to demonstrate what a great company Cartus is!
