Insights from The Great Scott as he heads to his 30th IAM Annual Meeting & Expo

In a few days, SIR MOVE will be attending the biggest and most popular global moving convention, The International Association of Movers (IAM ) for the 13th year. Held in a different American City every year, the 2019 Annual IAM Convention will be held in Chicago Illinois.

For Charlie Scott, Co-Founder of SIR Move Services and THE SIR Group, this would actually be his 30th representation.

Charlie joined the industry with Four Winds in 1985. Prior to that he was in the Oil and Gas Industry serving in an expatriate position in Singapore. Originally from Aberdeen Scotland with a left foot that has given him headlines such as the Blond Dynamo, Charlie’s call to fame was Scottish Division 2 side for Forfar Athletic and in Singapore for Farrer Park Dynamos, Tampines Rovers and Jurong Town FC.

He was ready to return to Aberdeen when the Oil Industry took a hit in 1985 but since he was playing football with the Four Winds Football team, he was offered a job in the moving industry.

As Charlie puts it, “I was either going to be cold for the rest of my life or stay nice and warm all the time. It was an easy decision to stay”.

Fast forward to 2019 and Charlie has been in the International Moving industry for an impressive 33 years and still going strong.

I asked Charlie what has been keeping him in the industry and he simply said, “the people”. That would make sense knowing Charlie, he is always drawn to meeting new people and retaining connections and friendships. His philosophy to moving has always been providing assistance, answers and solutions.
