Some of the friendly faces behind the business

Meet the team

Jim Hart

Jim Hart


After studying French and German at Nottingham University, Jim started his career working for a publishing company selling into the German market before making the move to travel and work overseas, living for periods in Sydney, Santiago and crossing Russia on the Trans Mongolian Express.

Combining his love of travel and business, Jim set up Europlus Direct in 2004 with one vision; to make it simple for businesses to trade internationally.  With 8 global operations across Australasia, Africa, America and Europe, one of Jim’s proudest moments was when Europlus Direct won the Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2008 and 2013, taking him one step closer to achieving his goal.

Outside of the office, Jim loves spending time with his family and when he’s not teaching his children how to play different sports, he enjoys rustling up a barbecue. When time allows, Jim also enters a few cycling Sportives every year and takes to the golf course every now and then – although with more enthusiasm than skill. But he’s working on that.

Michelle Littlewood

Michelle Littlewood

Business Development Director

What Michelle doesn’t do at EPD Asia Pacific isn’t worth doing! When she’s not jetting off here there and everywhere, Michelle manages all departments and teams as well as the day-to-day running of EPD HQ.

A self-confessed workaholic, Michelle redresses the balance with a love of socialising, learning how to ski, playing rounders and indulging in some serious retail therapy.


With all major European languages spoken in one office at our UK headquarters, we work in a diverse and inspiring environment – not least when we’re testing our taste buds with regular lunchtime buffets based on the latest country of choice. It’s busy too, and with monthly prizes such as holidays up for grabs for our best salespeople, it’s exciting with a competitive, but supportive edge.

And if all that fun and excitement gets too much for staff, there’s always our stress-busting monthly massage days to fall back on and enjoy!

We’re a very ambitious, young company and with that, we greatly appreciate the efforts of all our colleagues who all benefit from clearly defined career paths and yearly salary increases, based on performance.

Oh, and if any of our team is lucky enough to win a company holiday, our lovely modern offices are based right by the airport, which is handy for a quick getaway.
