About us



Founder & Partner

For 6 years, my role was to welcome employees who were moving for their job. I quickly understood just how difficult it really is to settle in to a new city, let alone a new country.

This realisation, together with a personal ambition to run my own business, led me to create AC SMART RELOCATION.
It was whilst working for Excelia Group, my last employer for more than twelve years, that I met Chong, a colleague who became a close friend and then my business partner at AC SMART RELOCATION.

Co-founder & Partner

I am Chinese and I will never forget arriving in France for the first time… I was completely lost!
Finding accommodation, getting insurance, opening a bank account and coping with all the administrative procedures can be a real obstacle course for a foreigner… especially when you don’t speak the language and there is no one to help you!

When I met Alexandra at Excelia Group, we discovered a common desire to help people from all over the world with their move to La Rochelle.
So, with our respective backgrounds and expertise, we decided to join forces and set up a relocation service.  We are here to help and support you every step of the way, making your move as stress-free as possible!
