Pickfords was selected following a formal bid procedure lead by Head of Business Solutions Martin Budd, with the project scheduled to start in May.

The European Banking Authority considered proposals from a number of potential suppliers and followed a rigorous selection process before appointing Pickfords Business Solutions to manage the cross border commercial relocation.

The Head of Business Solutions from Pickfords said “We are delighted to have been appointed following the selection procedure and following the successful relocation of NATO’s headquarters in Brussels last year.

"The European Banking Authority will be able to draw on the knowledge of our project team, our experience in cross border business relocations and our local resources in the UK and France.

“We look forward to working with the bank’s management team during the transition.”
