Serdar Arslan Expat and Relocation Service
Serdar Arslan

Expat & Relocation Service
tel.: +43 2742 9000-19719

More than ten years ago, he was the „newcomer“ in Austria. Born in Turkey, he has gone through the process „coming from a third country“ from A to Z and has also done a few „extra rounds“ and therefore knows that it is often the little things that cost time – and patience. He is happy to pass on this experience.
"I have never regretted the decision to move my professional future and my centre of life to Austria. I have experienced the immigration process myself and therefore know only too well what is important."

We are there for you.
For Lower Austrian companies and their internationals
as well as for Lower Austrian companies that need support
in the preparation of their export activities or those
that are interested in export funding.

What is it that characterises successful businesses and what do they need to thrive in the international marketplace? These are the questions that Gabriele Forgues – appropriately enough – deals with on a day-to-day basis. After studying business at Vienna University of Economics and Business and specialising in (unsurprisingly) export and international marketing, Gabriele Forgues worked for several years outside Austria in the fields of both international sales and procurement.

His know-how, experience and his network of contacts are worth their weight in gold. It goes without saying that it is not always easy to break into new markets and that smaller organisations in particular need to invest considerable effort, resources and determination to achieve this. At the same time, however, it also goes without saying that we  – as  the internationalisation agency of the province of Lower Austria – see it as our primary mission to facilitate this for our clients.
