Europa Air & Sea has appointed Miles O’Donnell as its first general manager for the UK & Ireland.

With almost two decades of experience working in transport and logistics and 10 years at Europa Worldwide Group, O’Donnell is now responsible for both the sales and operational sides of the UK team. 

The appointment is part of the company’s organic growth strategy in the UK, which involves increasing the number of business development managers to ensure specialist air and sea freight expertise is easily accessible to localised customers.

The appointment also forms part of a restructure, with Europa Air & Sea now having over 100 staff globally.

As well as local branch presence across the UK & Ireland, Europa’s main airfreight team is based in Heathrow and its seafreight team is based in Birmingham.

Internationally, Europa Air & Sea has recently opened offices in Shanghai, Dubai, Shenzhen and Delhi.

Angus Hind, director of Europa Air & Sea, commented: “Miles’ new role will give him responsibility for both the operations and sales of the division in the UK.

“With the challenging global and UK economy, businesses everywhere are seeking out high-quality services at the most cost-effective price, air and sea freight is no exception.

“I’m delighted that Miles will be leading our UK team and continuing to drive our ambitious organic growth strategy, leading our excellent team as Europa Air & Sea continues to flourish.”
