UPPER MARLBORO, MD / JANUARY 21 – 23, 2010 – It wasn’t much of a gamble when ACE Relocation Systems, Inc. decided to hire Ed Katz and the International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®).
“A leader cannot lead unless he knows where he is going. Our executive team is going to ensure that ACE becomes the best IOMI Certified Office Mover in the country,” said John Burton, ACE Relocation Systems senior vice president, Commercial Services Division. Burton is an industry veteran, who already holds an IOMI® Certified Office Mover certificate.
His experience with IOMI® training convinced Burton that if ACE is to be the best, it would do so on the strength of the best training available. Burton also knew IOMI® instructor, Katz, would get their attention and hold it in ways not expected.
“Kregg Boreani just looked at me smiling and shook his head, ‘You’re shameless’, he said.” Katz smiled as he related the story afterwards. “I told him that was the nicest thing anyone ever said to me.”
Boreani, ACE general manager for its metro Washington DC location, made the comment during a recent training session. All key employees from ACE’s metro DC and Orlando branches and several from their Chicago and corporate offices in San Diego, nineteen in all, attended the intense three-day training, which covers best-practice methods for on-time-for-the-price-quoted office moves.
Not known for his poker face, Katz likes to get his students’ attention and hold it. “I like to shake people up, I get in their face, I love to be politically incorrect and try to get them to think,” said the head of IOMI® and founder and former owner of Peachtree Movers in Atlanta.
“Ed was great, very engaging and kept it fun and entertaining,” said Michelle Green, metro DC branch sales executive.
More training is scheduled for ACE in 2010. “As IOMI Certified Office Movers, ACE is holding the winning hand,” said Katz.

After 25 years in the business, this is the first time I have seen a documented set of procedures, best practices and methods for training both sales people and labor new to our industry. This will help to insure that everyone involved with a move delivers the same level of professionalism.
David J. Noffs, General Manager, Chicago
I wanted to thank you for putting together such a wonderful class. I enjoyed every minute and eagerly await our next class in California.
