If you could pick someone to teach you how to have a successful office move, it’s a good bet the name Ed Katz, president of the International Office Moving Institute (IOMI®), Madison, Mississippi, would be at the top of your list. His innovations and techniques have brought him international recognition and the unofficial title of guru of office moving. His “moving story” has been featured in The Wall Street Journal. With his book, Move Your Business Without Becoming A Moving Target, Katz added a third book to his list of accomplishments. The book is based upon his first book, Commercial Relocation, that won the “Award of Excellence—Distinguished Author for 1999” by the International Facility Managers Association (IFMA).
