Event furniture and panel hire firm Europa International has bolstered its management team with the appointment of Garry Pettitt, who joins the business with immediate effect in the role of distribution and fulfilment manager.

The family-run business was founded in 1961 and specialises in delivering and installing furniture packages for the events industry in the UK and further afield. It announced its latest senior hire following one of its most successful years to date, and ahead of further expansion plans in 2018.

Pettitt will manage the operations of Europa’s London based warehouse, working closely with the wider team to ensure the successful delivery of all customer orders.

Stephen Murphy, senior designer and account manager, said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Garry. The past 12 months have been extremely successful for the firm, and Garry’s experience will serve to further our commitment to continual improvement and ongoing expansion in 2018.

“He has a wealth of experience from within the industry which was crucial to his appointment, and his meticulous attention to logistical detail makes him a key ingredient to the future. We very much look forward to continued success with Garry at the heart of our fulfilment team and we welcome him into the Europa family with open arms.”
