Paul Chutter named president of WhiteWater

Waterpark design specialist WhiteWater has named Paul Chutter as its new president.

Paul is the son of founder and CEO, Geoff Chutter and has spent the past seven years with the business – primarily as chief business development officer.

He has been instrumental in bringing WhiteWater’s technology company, Vantage, to market and is also founder of Endless Surf, which focuses on the surf pool market.

While Geoff Chutter will step down as president, he will retain his role as CEO.

The appointment is part of a reshaping of WhiteWater's leadership team, which has seen Doug Smith, regional VP for Asia Pacific, being promoted to the role of global head of sales.

David Bogdonov, who has spent eight years as VP of business development for China, has taken over leadership in Asia Pacific.

Franceen Gonzales, who has led the company's operations in the Americas for the past seven years, has been named chief experience officer, responsible for customer journeys.

“It's with tremendous pride I see Paul step into the role of president," Geoff Chutter said.

"I know that we have the best team in the industry and together we will continue to deliver the very best products and guest experiences possible, working tirelessly to reward the trust our clients place in us."

The changes come as the company celebrates its 40th anniversary, having been founded in 1980.

Paul Chutter added: “What we do, together with our clients, is very significant – we make moments that bring families together, something everyone recognises and values more than ever after the past year.

"To be able to work alongside my father and ensure that continues long into the future is a huge responsibility and honour I’m excited to take on.”
