One demographic that companies continue to relocate with great frequency is key executives. And while the stakes are high on any corporate move, they’re considerably higher when VIPs are being relocated.

They’re also most likely to have “unique” needs and requests, such as moving wine collections or antique cars, finding private schools or selling million-dollar homes.
