Tarsus Group, the parent company of Labels & Labeling and Labelexpo Global Series, has named a new managing director of its labels division.

Nick Davison will join Tarsus as managing director of the labels division. Davison joins Tarsus from Hyve Group where he headed the Breakbulk portfolio, a global series of events for the project logistics and oversize cargo industry. In that role, Davison managed five events on four continents, as well as a monthly publication. His other roles have included running the Spring/Autumn Fair, the UK’s largest trade exhibition. Davison will begin his role at Tarsus in February.

Davison has taken over from Lisa Milburn, who has been promoted to group director and appointed to the main Tarsus board, a role which will see her managing a number of key divisions, including Labels, Aerospace, OFFPRICE, FounderMade and Tarsus Media, as well as responsibility for driving organic growth. Milburn has been with the group for more than 20 years having progressed through the business to head up the Labels division.

Doug Emslie, CEO of the Tarsus Group said, ‘It is my great pleasure to welcome Nick Davison on board as the new managing director of the Tarsus labels group at a time when the business is bouncing back and in the run-up to our premier event, Labelexpo Europe 2023.’

Davison will be supported by the existing leadership team of Strategy Director Andy Thomas-Emans and Portfolio Director Jade Grace.

Labelexpo has a number of events on the calendar in 2023, starting with Labelexpo Southeast Asia on Feb 9-11. Labelexpo Mexico will launch April 26-28 and the group’s flagship event, Labelexpo Europe will be hosted Sept 11-14.
