Pasha Opens New Offices in Reno, Nevada

Monday, March 5, 2001

CORTE MADERA -- The Pasha Group, a global transportation company headquartered in Corte Madera, California, announces the opening of new offices in Reno, Nevada. This new location will allow for the immediate operational expansion of the company's Relocation Services division and will permit Pasha to take advantage of both organizational and financial efficiencies and incentives.

George W. Pasha, IV, president and COO of The Pasha Group, notes, "The explosive growth of the company, not only in its domestic and international move management services but in all our transportation arenas, has dictated that we meet expansion needs and provide a cost-effective means to maintain this growth. Reno does both. As part of this relocation effort we will also create a secure state-of-the-art off-site disaster recovery data center in Reno to ensure that the availability of Pasha's worldwide applications are not interrupted and our service capabilities are maintained."

Relocation Services vice president and general manager Brian Goates says,

"In addition, the ability to offer a good quality of life to both current and future employees, and a lower cost of living played a big part in our decision to make this move."

To head up the financial management and reporting systems for this new location, the company has hired Andre M. Urruty as vice president, administration. He will also have financial responsibility for the current and future profit centers to be domiciled in Reno. Urruty has been in the transportation industry since 1983, most recently as vice president of operations and administration for Relocation Management Resources, Inc., in Sparks, Nevada. In addition, he has an extensive background in the ocean liner business. Urruty advises, "I am excited to have the opportunity to join a company with such a dynamic future."

Relocation Services will be transferring a number of current staff members and, in the next several weeks, will be actively hiring in all capacities for the Reno location to complement Pasha's existing operations at its Southern California Service Center. International, Domestic and Vehicle Relocation Services move coordinator positions are available in addition to jobs in general ledger, receivables, and billing and collections.
