Matthew Greenway has joined Europa Air & Sea as its Pricing and Procurement Manager. The company is a division of Europa Worldwide Group.
With Greenway in post the plan is for him to review the overarching strategy and work closely with suppliers to drive efficiencies into Europa Air & Sea through better working relationships.
Greenway has worked in the logistics and supply chain industry for more than 13 years. Amongst his previous roles he has been Sea Freight Manager.
Matthew Greenway, Pricing and Procurement Manager for Europa Air & Sea, commented: “Joining the team at Europa is like a homecoming for me. It’s where I feel my skill set is best suited and allows me to work within an environment where I can excel. With the division experiencing continued growth, the team has a positive future ahead so it’s a really exciting time. My focus will be on developing the strategy and working with the teams to put this to action. Reviewing the customer and supplier journey forms part of this strategy as we strive to deliver best in class customer service whilst also being a good company to do business with. We will continue to operate with our core values and strategy which will prove an enabler to drive the division forward in 2019 and beyond.”
Angus Hind, Europa Air & Sea Director, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Matthew to the team and know his wealth of experience and knowledge will be of huge benefit to us, strengthening our team further. The division’s success over the past few years is responsible for the continued investment in its growth. Creating this new position within the pricing and procurement team is essential, as it creates an opportunity for us to think ahead and focus on our long-term strategy, allowing us to continue to build on our firm foundations as we go into a new year.”
It has been four years since Europa centralised its Air service in Heathrow and its Sea service in Birmingham.
Angus continued: “The continued investment in our services, facilities and staff shows our drive to gain further market share. We’ve seen a steady increase in UK exports for both Air and Sea Freight which is not only fantastic for us, but also a positive reflection on the UK manufacturing industry as a whole.
