On 29 June 2012, during its Annual General Meeting, the European Small Business Alliance (ESBA) has elected David Caro as its new President. As every President since the establishment of ESBA in 1998, David runs his own SME. His Birmingham based business Qualplast Ltd, founded in 1977, currently employs 25 people and is the UK's premier supplier of flock finishes to the automotive industry.
David Caro also has a longstanding history in policy, as he has been active in ESBA member the UK Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) for 16 years, currently chairing the Birmingham branch, as well as being national Chairman for Environment, Energy & Water Policy Unit of the FSB for 3 years.
ESBA expresses great gratitude to the address of resigning President Tina Sommer, whose leadership has taken the Alliance forward immensely, and who will remain very active within ESBA.
