Pro-Link GLOBAL, Inc., a boutique global corporate immigration firm (which recently won Highly Commended in two Expatriate Mobility Management Award categories – for best legal services provider and for Global Mobility Professional of the year) is adding yet more industry leading lights to the team. Their latest success story is the recruitment of Katharine Salem, a qualified paralegal with a professional doctorate in law and over seven years of combined U.S. and global immigration experience. Katharine will be based in Texas, USA, and joins Pro-Link as Practice Manager.
Prior to joining Pro-Link GLOBAL, Katharine held the position of Global Case Manager at a leading U.S. immigration law firm. She joined that firm in February 2007 and was responsible for much of the start up of the global immigration department and co-counsel relationships. Katharine went on to manage the global team, participating in HR conferences, client presentations and business development in addition to working directly with the corporate clients and global co-counsel partners. She spearheaded the firm’s global development, creating partnerships with co-counsel in several countries and developing the expertise of the global team.
At Pro-Link GLOBAL, which is the only visa and immigration services firm where all employees are Six Sigma Certified, Katharine will lead our global immigration practice team in providing top level global immigration services to our clients, including work permits, entry visas, residence permits, renewals, registrations, assistance with exit procedures, and complex consultations to any country in the world where services are permitted by law.
Pro-Link GLOBAL’s phenomenal growth in recent years (400% growth in the last four years) has led to great opportunities within the firm. Beata Firosz and Latchi Delcheva, who have earned their stripes as global immigration specialists over the last few years, have now both been promoted to Manager, Global Cases. Latchi and Beata will directly manage two teams of consultants within the Practice. Additionally, Christen Gause has been appointed Manager, Business Immigration and now leads a team of consultants specifically dedicated to business immigration services, such as business visas, Apostilles, legalizations, vital records and so on.
Pro-Link GLOBAL’s virtual structure means that our teams are made up of global and business immigration specialists spread across the globe, spanning multiple time zones and cultures (over 80% of the Pro-Link team is multilingual; between them, they speak 17 languages fluently). The challenge of managing multi-cultural and geographically diverse teams is something which Pro-Link GLOBAL’s new managers are uniquely suited for and are relishing.
Pro-Link GLOBAL is proud to be a leading niche provider of high touch concierge visa services. Andrea Elliott, Pro-Link’s founder and Senior Counsel (Foreign), said, “I am so proud of what we have achieved at Pro-Link GLOBAL. Our newly appointed managers have demonstrated their commitment and skill and deserve the recognition they are receiving. Katharine’s extensive global immigration experience and her legal and management expertise is obviously going to be of great benefit to the Pro-Link GLOBAL team. I can’t wait to introduce her to our clients – I know they will rate her as highly as I do.”
