We are excited to announce the acquisition of School Choice International by Bennett Schoolplacement Worldwide, Inc. Together, these two industry leaders will enjoy many synergies and the ability to offer their clients a broader array of services, a deeper bench of professionals, and the accumulated experience and wisdom of both companies.
Dear Clients and Friends of SCI,
As of January 29 2018, SCI is now held exclusively by Bennett.
Liz Perelstein founded SCI in 1998 and, with the help of an outstanding team, has grown it to the highly-respected organization that it is today. Having seen it to its 20th birthday, Liz has decided that it’s time to pass the baton to another owner, who will steward it into its next 20 years of success. She is delighted that SCI has found its new home with Elizabeth Sawyer, Owner and CEO of Bennett. Liz and Elizabeth share a passion for education and for supporting clients who recognize its crucial role in making family relocations successful.
Like SCI, Bennett is an industry leader in providing education consulting to corporations and their relocating assignees. Founded in 1991 and acquired by Elizabeth Sawyer in 2009, it occupies a similar space as SCI and has often been both a peer and a competitor. Both companies share a dedication to the employers and families they support, and a commitment to providing excellent service. Together, these two industry leaders will enjoy many synergies and the ability to offer their clients a broader array of services, a deeper bench of professionals, and the accumulated experience and wisdom of both companies.
For the foreseeable future, SCI will maintain its name and identity and will continue to exist and operate as it has:
• We are delighted that Tim Dwyer, who was integral to making this deal happen, has agreed to continue in his leadership role at SCI, now reporting to Elizabeth Sawyer;
• The SCI headquarters team will remain intact, as will the excellent global network of education consultants;
• SCI will continue to deliver the same products and services;
• There will be absolutely no disruption to the many families to whom SCI is currently providing assistance.
We will be back in touch in the coming months with updates as we enter this exciting time, bringing you the best of our two wonderful companies!
Liz Perelstein Elizabeth Sawyer
