Head of IT in position at Europa
The logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group has appointed a head of IT as it embarks on opening its biggest facility to date, which comes with a raft of IT requirements. Chris Mitchell joins the specialist road, air & sea, warehouse and show freight operator with more than 20 years’ experience, having previously worked at a major electronic point of sale (EPOS) provider in the hospitality and retail sector as its head of IT.
Mitchell, who is responsible for Europa’s IT helpdesk and infrastructure teams, has hit the ground running by launching a new ‘best in class’ 3PL warehousing and logistics facility at Midlands Logistics Park in Corby, Northants, which is set to open next year.
Also responsible for ‘future-proofing’ the business’s IT system, Mitchell said he has plans to grow his team in the next twelve months in order to manage the growing demands of the business. (mw)
