WHR Group, Inc. Becomes WHR Global

Global Employee Relocation Management Company Operates Under New Name to Reflect Global Presence

MILWAUKEE, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WHR Group, Inc. (WHR), a leader in the global employee relocation industry, announced today that the company will begin operating under a new name and will be known as WHR Global (WHR). This name change reflects how WHR has grown from being a US relocation management company to a global mobility brand, with offices also in Singapore and Switzerland. WHR’s global expansion was critical to serve its clients’ ever-growing needs for worldwide global relocation services.

The Switzerland office supports clients and their transferees in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, while the Singapore office supports the Asia-Pacific region. These international offices provide a range of services including pre-assignment, transition, on assignment and repatriation services to multi-language expatriate transferees. Overseas staff bring a variety of foreign languages including French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Malayalam, Lithuanian, Russian, Bahasa, Malay and Mandarin. Along with its U.S. headquarters in Milwaukee, Wis., WHR helps some of the largest global organizations and has relocated hundreds of thousands of employees to over 120 countries worldwide. WHR specializes in providing each expatriate with a dedicated relocation team, white glove service and 24/7 availability for their entire relocation journey.

WHR CEO Roger Thrun believes it’s a client obsession that has helped WHR become so successful. “We always make sure the client and their transferees come first. We believe that working in our clients’ best interests pays big benefits,” says Thrun. “Our number one objective is to provide the very best service that our clients and their employees will ever receive. Our niche is to make employees happier and more productive through a really stressful time in their lives by providing superior relocation services.”

This name rebranding does not change WHR’s ownership since its founding in 1994. As an independent organization, WHR does not have affiliations or partnerships with other organizations which allows WHR to act as a fiduciary to its clients. This ensures only the highest quality supply chain partners are utilized.

ICANN Commits to Training in Best Practices for African Internet Registries

Pledge Joins ICANN with Partner2Connect in Capacity-Building Initiative

ISTANBUL, June 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) today announced its commitment to provide hands-on training and tools to prepare 10 African country code top-level domain (ccTLD) registries to compete in the domain industry. ICANN and its partner organizations, the International Telecommunication Union-Development Sector (ITU-D), Africa Top Level Domains Organization (AfTLD), Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC), and Association française pour le nommage Internet en coopération (AFNIC), issued a pledge to the Partner2Connect Digital Coalition, committing to the goals of the project as well as the overall goal to drive digital transformation in hard-to-connect communities. The pledge was made by ICANN President and CEO Gӧran Marby during the Partner2Connect (P2C) Digital Development Roundtable at the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC) in Kigali, Rwanda.

ICANN Logo

The pilot project allows for the 10 ccTLD registries, from  Niger, Togo, Benin, the Republic of Congo, Comoros, Madagascar, Angola, Liberia, Zimbabwe, and Gambia to leverage the expertise of ICANN and the partner organizations that have a common goal, but cannot achieve it alone. The 10 ccTLD registries will receive specialized training led by industry experts, through a combination of online courses, hands-on workshops, and webinars. The training will cover topics ranging from best practices in domain name system security and registry governance, to business plan writing and marketing, to Internationalized Domain Names and Universal Acceptance.

“The Internet is both global and local. Country code top-level domains are an integral part of the Internet infrastructure, supporting the development of local digital initiatives that contribute to sustainable national digital economies,” Marby said. “By pooling together our talents and areas of expertise, we are working with the ccTLD managers to hone these critical skills, to be able to compete and participate in the digital economy. Additionally, the project will benefit from the opportunities provided by the Partner2Connect Digital Coalition, harnessing the power of this multistakeholder alliance and mobilizing the resources necessary to achieve our shared goals.”

“AfTLD appreciates and supports the initiative by ICANN to support the development of African ccTLDs,” said Ali Hadji Mmadi, Chair of Excom, AfTLD. “The Association looks forward to playing an integral role in the conceptualization and implementation of the project as part of its ongoing collaborative efforts with ICANN.”

“AFNIC is proud to be part of this initiative aimed at accelerating and reinforcing the cooperation with and between African ccTLDs,” said Pierre Bonis, CEO, AFNIC. “Since AFNIC started engaging with its African counterparts decades ago, this is the first time such a coalition is put in place, and we are convinced it could be a game changer for a lot of Registries in Africa.”

Doreen Bogdan-Martin, Director of the ITU Telecommunication Development Bureau: “I welcome this pledge towards Partner2Connect. The Partner2Connect Coalition is a game-changing opportunity to take a holistic approach, catalyze new partnerships, and mobilize the resources needed to connect those who are still offline. I am calling on all players to step up and help us connect those 2.9 billion that are unconnected. I look forward to welcoming many more pledges soon so that we can truly “Partner2Connect the World”.”

This pilot project is the second initiative ICANN has launched in Africa. In February, ICANN announced that it was expanding the global presence of its root servers by adding two ICANN-operated and managed clusters in Africa. These two projects are part of a larger initiative that will be launched toward the end of the year, in which ICANN and key partners will support the growth and sustainability of the African digital economy by ensuring a stable, resilient, and secure Internet.

About ICANN
ICANN’s mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you have to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique, so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation and a community with participants from all over the world.

L’ICANN et la Coalition pour le numérique « Partner2Connect » s’associent pour lancer une initiative de renforcement des capacités

ISTANBUL, le 7 juin 2022 /PRNewswire/ — La Société pour l’attribution des noms de domaine et des numéros sur Internet (ICANN) a annoncé aujourd’hui son engagement à fournir à dix opérateurs de registre africains de domaines de premier niveau géographiques (ccTLD) des formations pratiques et des outils destinés à les aider à prendre leur place dans l’industrie des noms de domaine.

L’engagement a été pris par le président-directeur général de l’ICANN, Gӧran Marby, lors de la table ronde sur le développement numérique tenue par Partner2Connect (P2C) à l’occasion de la Conférence mondiale de développement des télécommunications (CMDT) à Kigali, au Rwanda.

Dans le cadre du projet pilote, les dix opérateurs de registre ccTLD originaires du Niger, du Togo, du Bénin, de la République du Congo, des Comores, du Madagascar, de l’Angola, du Liberia, du Zimbabwe et de la Gambie, pourront profiter de l’expertise de l’ICANN et des organisations partenaires qui travaillent ensemble en vue d’un objectif commun qu’elles ne peuvent pas atteindre toutes seules. Les 10 opérateurs de registre ccTLD recevront une formation spécialisée dispensée par des experts du secteur, par le biais d’une combinaison de cours en ligne, d’ateliers pratiques et de webinaires La formation abordera un éventail de thématiques allant des bonnes pratiques en matière de sécurité du système des noms de domaine et de gouvernance des registres jusqu’à la rédaction de business plans et de plans marketing, en passant par les noms de domaine internationalisés et l’acceptation universelle.

« L’Internet est à la fois mondial et local. Les domaines de premier niveau géographiques font partie intégrante de l’infrastructure Internet dans la mesure où ils permettent le développement d’initiatives numériques locales destinées à promouvoir des économies numériques nationales durables », a déclaré Marby. « Nous associons nos talents et nos domaines d’expertise pour travailler avec les gestionnaires de ccTLD au développement de ces compétences fondamentales qui leur permettront d’être en mesure de participer de manière compétitive à l’économie numérique. Le projet pourra en outre s’appuyer sur les opportunités offertes par la Coalition pour le numérique « Partner2Connect », en exploitant la puissance de cette alliance multipartite et en mobilisant les ressources nécessaires pour atteindre nos objectifs communs. »

« L’AfTLD apprécie et soutient l’initiative de l’ICANN de promouvoir le développement des ccTLD africains », a déclaré Ali Hadji Mmadi, président du comité exécutif (Excom) de l’AfTLD. « L’Association se réjouit de jouer un rôle actif dans la conceptualisation et la mise en œuvre du projet dans le cadre de ses efforts continus de collaboration avec l’ICANN. »

« L’AFNIC est fière de prendre part à cette initiative qui vise à accélérer et à renforcer la coopération avec et entre les ccTLD africains », a indiqué Pierre Bonis, PDG de l’AFNIC. « Depuis que l’AFNIC a commencé à collaborer avec ses homologues africains il y a des décennies, c’est la première fois qu’une telle coalition est mise en place. Nous sommes convaincus qu’elle pourrait changer la donne pour un grand nombre d’opérateurs de registre en Afrique. »

Doreen Bogdan-Martin, directrice du Bureau de développement des télécommunications de l’UIT, a déclaré : « Je salue cet engagement en faveur de Partner2Connect. La Coalition pour le numérique « Partner2Connect » est un cadre susceptible de changer la donne qui offre l’occasion d’adopter une approche globale, de favoriser l’établissement de nouveaux partenariats et de mobiliser les ressources nécessaires pour connecter ceux qui ne le sont pas encore. J’appelle tous les acteurs à se mobiliser et à nous aider à connecter les 2,9 milliards de personnes qui ne sont pas connectées. Je suis impatiente d’accueillir bientôt de nombreuses autres contributions afin que nous puissions véritablement incarner la devise de la Coalition « Partner2Connect the World » : travailler en partenariat pour connecter le monde. »

Ce projet pilote est la deuxième initiative lancée par l’ICANN en Afrique. En février, l’ICANN a annoncé le renforcement de la présence de ses serveurs racine à l’échelle mondiale avec l’installation de deux grappes exploitées et gérées par l’ICANN en Afrique. Ces deux projets font partie d’une initiative plus large qui sera lancée vers la fin de l’année, grâce à laquelle l’ICANN et ses partenaires clés contribueront à la croissance et à la durabilité de l’économie numérique africaine en garantissant un Internet stable, résilient et sécurisé.

À propos de l’ICANN
La mission de l’ICANN consiste à garantir un Internet mondial sûr, stable et unifié. Pour contacter une personne sur Internet, vous devez saisir une adresse sur votre ordinateur ou autre dispositif : un nom ou un numéro. Cette adresse doit être unique pour permettre aux ordinateurs de s’identifier entre eux. L’ICANN coordonne ces identificateurs uniques à l’échelle mondiale.
