Audrey Adams, President
Audrey began her career in relocation more than 30 years ago at what was then one of the largest relocation companies in Canada. She has been President of All Points since 1992, and has overseen the growth of the company from 2 people into a team of over 90. Audrey is a registered real estate broker in Ontario. She served on the Canadian Employee Relocation Council’s Editorial committee for over five years, and was Chairperson of the Conference Planning and the Professional Development Committees.
Audrey changed the strategic direction of All Points first in 1994 by embracing a then little-known service in Canada—Destination Services and Settling-In for expatriates—that has resulted in a corporate culture attuned to international mobility, and then again in 2000 with her significant and dedicated investment in technology.
Audrey lived as an expatriate in London, England before returning to Canada and joining the relocation industry. Audrey holds her CERC Relocation Specialist and GMS designations. Audrey is an actor and has been in numerous theatre productions, including one which was off-off-off-off-off Broadway.
Audrey is co-owner of the company.
