WhiteWater, the Canada-based designer and manufacturer of waterpark products and active family attractions, has appointed Nathan Jones as global head of attractions business development.

Jones is an established industry veteran, having worked in executive management positions for some of the world’s top manufacturers.

He has spent the last three years as vice president of sales and marketing in the North America region for Vekoma Rides Manufacturing. Prior to that, he spent eight years with WhiteWater as sales director, primarily focused on key accounts in the Americas.

In addition, Jones has been extensively involved in the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), serving as the founding member and chairman of the Northwest subcommittee, as well as currently serving as the first vice president of the Western North America division, in addition to serving as a board member.

“We are very happy to welcome Nathan back to WhiteWater,” said Geoff Chutter, president and CEO of the Richmond-based company. “He knows us and our amusement industry very well, and shares our excitement for the future of our attractions products.”
