What is your current job or role?
As the National Account Executive of Wayne Moving and Storage, my role is to build long term relationships, qualify accounts, resolve problems, define budgets, learn about the logistics of decision making and present solutions to Fortune 1000 companies who are frustrated with their current Domestic and International relocation program. I choose to work in the International and Domestic relocation area out of survival. I was young and did not know what direction I wanted to take in life. Luckily I had a friend working in the industry. When I told him I was thinking about following my brother John’s footsteps and joining the Marines he offered me a job. The second I started I fell in love with the industry. It was the high pace, constant challenges, and the opportunity for growth.
In your current job, what gives you the greatest sense of reward and accomplishment?
My greatest sense of reward and accomplishment is the freedom to be creative and to be supported when I think outside the box. This year, with the support of Wayne Moving and Storage, I was able to start the Forum for Expatriate Management: Pennsylvania Chapter. As Chapter President, I now have the ability to offer companies in Pennsylvania another resource. This year we are having an event on school placement in China. This really means a lot to me to be able to present a topic that carries so much emotion to the Expatriates overseas. With tightening relocation budgets, the children are starting to be forgotten. The issues are even greater with children with special needs.
What is your greatest personal or professional accomplishment?
My greatest accomplishment happened on September 11, 2014 at 1:03 AM, when my wife Brenna and I welcomed our first child, our son Cory Edwards Luczyszyn into this world, who weighed in at a healthy 8 lbs. I have never been so happy; he is truly my pride and joy.
With your level of experiences, what words of wisdom could you offer someone who is working hard to make their career grow?
Dream big! My journey has had its ups and downs, but I always had a vision and a plan. I always walked through the door with the biggest upside.
What have you found most valuable about being a member of PSHRM?
I have found being part of the PSHRM sponsorship committee to be most valuable. It has been invaluable, the experiences I have gained working on the sponsorship committee. The relationships I have formed have helped me in other areas of my life both personal and professional. Volunteering to help great organizations like PSHRM has been very valuable.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
In my spare time, I love spending time with my grandmother and my wife. We get together to have dinner and play pinnacle. Some of my other hobbies include golf, chess, kayaking, 5ks, and finishing a good book.
If given an opportunity to do something really extraordinary or adventurous, what would it be and why?
I have had the luxury to travel to many places, but I have never been to Asia. I would love to take a year off from work and travel through all the providences. Having the ability to send employees to Asia has always instilled in me the desire to experience the Asian culture first hand.View More Members
