Jack Baxter, 19, has been announced as the newest recruit at Europa Showfreight in the company’s Birmingham base.
Straight out of Sixth Form, he took a gap year to gain experience and travel to Australia, and on his return become the youngest member of the team as the role of business development manager.
His title entails developing new business and focusing on customer relationship management with new and existing clients, which fulfils the company’s commitment to further grow this specialist management service.

Showfreight manager Jeff Broom, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Jack on board and I’m pleased to say he’s off to a flying start. There aren’t enough young people coming in to the exhibition side of the logistics industry so this is a very promising addition to our growing team.”
