With the founding of WhiteWater, in 1980, Geoff Chutter helped establish an industry that continues to bring joy to millions around the globe. A water park veteran, Geoff’s start in the amusement and attractions space began with his investment in his own park in Canada. Undeterred by a lack of water slide suppliers, he decided to leave is career as a CPA with KMPG to manufacture his own rides, and thus created his own manufacturing empire.
Entering its fifth decade, WhiteWater continues to thrive under Geoff’s stewardship as CEO (while passing the role of president to his son, Paul) and maintains its place as the world’s undisputed leading water park manufacturer and supplier, by any metric. Where other suppliers chose to offer one or two product lines, Geoff built a complete water park service company, offering all of the products and services a customer would require to launch their own world-class parks. Geoff’s achievements have been recognized by many consecutive Canada’s Best Managed company awards and as Canada’s EY Entrepreneur of the year in 2020, as well as several attraction industry accolades.
