December 22, 2010

Christiane Crown has joined Arpin Group as vice president of military DPS systems.

As vice president, Crown will be directly responsible for all military Defense Personal Property Program (DP3) business and will help Arpin Group grow through her expertise in Department of Defense systems.

DP3, a program implemented by the Department of Defense, is a computer system designed to facilitate and streamline the moving process for members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Moving companies must interface with the DP3 system if they provide household goods transportation for service members, military-employed civilians and their families.

“Christiane has a long record of success in the household goods transportation industry,” said Matt Dolan, COO, Senior Vice President Military Services and Captain, USN (retired). “Her expertise in military systems is virtually unmatched and we are very pleased to add her to our skilled military relocations team.”

Crown has 18 years of experience in the field of military relocations. Previously, she was a senior project manager with Total Military Management, a company that develops programs for agents and household goods carriers which serve the military market. She was one of two testers to help develop software for the U.S. Army’s Surface Deployment and Distribution Command. Crown has also served on the Government Congressional Affairs Committee on behalf of the International Association of Movers (IAM).
