At Envoy, our Global Account Managers (GAMs) are the main point of contact for clients and Envoy’s Global Immigration Team. GAMs work to support clients with their immigration program needs, no matter the country or scale of a business.
From handling case escalations to delivering customized support and tackling specific project requests, our GAMs play a vital role in overseeing and enhancing our clients’ mobility programs. Envoy’s GAMs constantly work to ensure timely and consistent service tailored to an employer’s unique needs.
All our GAMs have worked in global immigration for at least a decade. They have much experience in regional case management, immigration management of regional teams and consular services assistance. With their knowledge of the global immigration process, Envoy’s GAMs can provide a well-rounded and comprehensive insight.
Recently, we caught up with Jacqueline Reyes to get an inside look at what a GAM’s day-to-day entails. With a background working as a Global Immigration Manager, Jacqueline has extensive knowledge in handling and resolving immigration-related questions and escalations for employers and employees.
What’s most fulfilling about working at Envoy Global? What motivates you most at work? What’s the most exciting part of your role?

What are some of the most significant responsibilities or duties you undertake in your day-to-day role as a Global Account Manager at Envoy?
Reyes: One of my primary responsibilities is the oversight of accounts globally, with a focus on client satisfaction and retention. I am here to help identify opportunities for additional services or support that we can provide to facilitate the growth of a client’s program. This process involves collaborating with other Global Immigration Team members on specific projects and questions raised throughout the relocation process.
How does Envoy Global handle changes to immigration laws and regulations during an international assignment?
Reyes: Regulatory changes and practical shifts in how countries operate are commonplace in the global immigration space. Close to 200 countries fall under Envoy’s jurisdiction of coverage, and changes take place daily.
One of the critical responsibilities of a GAM is to collaborate with Envoy Global’s legal teams in identifying changes that could affect any of our clients and their employees. We then work with our clients to develop strategies to navigate these changes effectively.
How does Envoy Global proactively identify regulatory changes?
Reyes: At Envoy Global, we proactively identify changes in several ways. We utilize government connections and announcements, trusted news sources, local co-counsel networks, our internal Knowledge Management Team, networks, industries and government events.
Given the frequent occurrence of new regulatory and practical operation developments in the global immigration space, Envoy has implemented a comprehensive process to ensure that our team and clients stay ahead of the curve.
Can you tell us about your morning and afternoon routine as a Global Account Manager at Envoy?
Reyes: My morning consists of attending and leading docket calls, where I provide overall strategic guidance for global mobility programs.
On other mornings, I address escalations and any areas of concern raised by the client.
In the afternoon, I often run and analyze client reports, such as active case reports and expiration reports.
Can I get in touch with my GAM at any time?
Reyes: Absolutely! As a client’s dedicated point of contact, we can help with any program needs. Whether you prefer to get in touch via phone, email, Envoy’s secure platform or any other method, we’re here to support you at every step. We aim to ensure that all questions and programmatic points are covered when the client has a need.
From your perspective, what feature of the Envoy platform do you find most useful for clients and your role responsibilities?
