Richmond, BC, Canada — Andrew Wray, Sales Director and Partner of WhiteWater West Industries Ltd., has announced that founder and CEO Geoff Chutter’s son, Paul Chutter, was appointed Vice President, Sales Operations/Corporate Development, effective September 2, 2014.
Chutter, 32, brings a financial and legal background to his new role. He began his career in corporate finance, working as a mergers and acquisitions advisor for the Bank of Nova Scotia. For the past five years he has served as Director of Institutional Equity Sales for UBS Investment Bank in London, England and Toronto, where he dealt with CEOs from some of Canada’s largest corporations and Europe’s largest financial institutions.
“After working in the service business, I felt it was time to tap into the entrepreneurial streak that is part of my DNA,” says Paul Chutter. “My great grandfather, grandfather and, of course, my father all founded their own successful businesses. The icing on the cake is that I have the opportunity to work with and learn from my Dad.”
Raised in Vancouver, Paul Chutter was educated in both English and French and studied at McGill University in Montreal, where he completed a Bachelor’s degree in political science and law. Following his graduation, he received his law degree from the University of London.
