Europa Road, a division within Europa Worldwide Group, has announced four role changes across its UK branch network, recognising homegrown talent within the business.
This has resulted in four new branch managers for Leeds, Nottingham, Sheffield and Birmingham, where the Europa Road teams provide sales and account management for its European road freight services. Combined, this team has more than 16 years of experience with Europa.
Previously manager at the Leeds office, Nathan Lynn has been selected to head up Europa’s newest branch office in Sheffield, building on his success in forming a new team at a completely new location.
Nathan has a total of nine years of experience in the industry – five of those being with Europa. Currently, Nathan leads a sales team of six, who provide support to a rapidly increasing list of customers across South Yorkshire. With this continued growth, Europa is expecting to double the size of the Sheffield team within the next 12-18 months.
Highlighting the leading logistics firm’s growth strategy across its branch office network, the branch managers’ roles include a range of responsiblities from driving their teams forward to ensuring each customer consignment is delivered with speed and efficiency.
These appointments, rewarding the talented team who have a combined 16 years with Europa, showcase the company’s ethos and culture – to offer development and support to create opportunities for career progression.
Stuart Mckie becomes branch manager in Leeds, which Europa opened just five years ago. With a decade of experience in logistics, Stuart has been with Europa for five years and has the opportunity to lead a team of six with ambitions to grow quickly to ten.
Dionne Redpath, branch network and sales director for Europa Road, said: “We are delighted to announce these internal appointments. As a company, Europa prides itself on working closely with it’s employees, offering development and guidance to aid career progression.
“As a company, we are growing and evolving, so this means we are always reviewing where we need to progress or hire staff to fill the gaps.
“Nuturing from within is key to our structure, and those who have been recognised thoroughly deserve the new positions given to them. We have no doubt they will use their skills to achieve fantastic results within their teams. If you work hard, you will be rewarded and there is a lot of opportunity here.”
