As the President and CEO of MoveTrek Mobility, a full-service executive relocation company, Doug Mohns is an expert at comforting and encouraging people during times of great change. When the pandemic stalled businesses around the globe, MoveTrek Mobility was on the receiving end of relief and reassurance, thanks to South Shore Bank’s facilitation of a Paycheck Protection Program loan.
When the Small Business Administration first made PPP loans available last Spring, Senior Relationship & Lending Team Leader, John Mannion, reached out to Mohns about procuring one. “For almost 20 years, South Shore Bank has been there for me and my company and, during the pandemic, they showed their commitment again,” says Mohns. “This past year was extremely difficult for our company, as many clients cut back on the number of people they were locating around the world. We provide all the support and logistics necessary for people buying and selling their homes, shipping household goods, travel coordination and rental assistance. We provide each relocating employee and their family with a Single-Point-of-Contact, relocation-certified account manager who provides personalized counseling and management services. As you can imagine, our team is highly trained and has years of experience. It is crucial that MoveTrek Mobility can retain this talent in order for us to grow and be able to help our clients effectively. I can’t thank John Mannion enough for being such a trusted advisor. From the first phone call he made telling me about the loan availability, to receiving our second-round loan this year, he has been there for us every step of the way. The PPP program made it possible to keep our employees on staff, and it saved our business so that we can keep doing what we love: helping people move.”
“MoveTrek Mobility shares South Shore Bank’s dedication to keeping its clients happy,” says Mannion. “Doug and his company do a stellar job getting people through one of the most stressful times in life. We’re glad that we could play a part in helping such a great business persevere.”
