Hi my name is Don Casagranda. I co-founded On Arrival with my wife Eve. I moved my family from Calgary, Canada, to Wellington in 1986, and I can remember how difficult it was for Eve to settle. I went to work after a couple of days, our daughters went to school and Eve was left “Stranded”, not knowing anyone, or where to shop, what to buy (As there were no familiar products), and where to go to meet people and develop friendships. When we founded On Arrival, it was based around Eve’s passion for ensuring that any families we supported would not be exposed to the same “Stresses”. Like Eve, all of our Resettlement Consultants are ladies who have gone through a similar move as I strongly believe that the best people to support you in your resettlement are people who have already experienced living and working overseas. We look forward to introducing you to your new city, community, and home.
