Professional, Personal, Genuine Assistance
Our researchers and orientation staff have a depth and breadth of expertise that truly resonates with our clients. We hold professional experiences in a diverse array of industries, including economic development, broadcasting, international business, advertising, event planning, travel planning, marketing, education, banking and finance, Pittsburgh tourism, and retailing. Most importantly, we are Pittsburghers. We are parents, consumers, commuters, homeowners, working spouses, PTA members, mentors, and community volunteers. Some of us were born and raised here, while others fell in love with the city after being relocated themselves. And we all love and believe in the possibility of Pittsburgh.
Each client and family has distinct relocation needs and interests, and the diverse experiences that each of our staff members bring to About Pittsburgh help us answer those individual requests.
