New Managing Director at White Horse Contractors

White Horse Contractors are pleased to announce the appointment of Gary Kneller as their new Managing Director. Gary originally joined the company as a graduate way back in 1994 and worked his way up through the company under the guidance of the then MD Johan Koster and then further developed with Rob Donald. After 10 years with the company he left to further his career, gaining a wealth of experience in both Natural and Artificial Turf.

This experience combined with his knowledge of the ‘White Horse Way’ made him the ideal candidate to take over the reins.

“I was very honoured to be asked to take up the role, and help to maintain the excellent reputation that the organisation has gained during its 56 years, although we cannot rest on this and must adapt to meet the demands of the current and future sports and leisure market.”

White Horse have always stood for quality and innovation both in design and implementation, the diverse, and unique, nature of our portfolio, Sports & Leisure, Equestrian, Water Engineering and Agricultural is testament to this.
“It was good to see that the core values are still in place, it was an easy choice to make to re-join the team, we have an exceptional pool of talent from the continued presence of Johan Koster to the new fresh input from James Welsh, this combined with a great group of people and a highly skilled workforce who are all focused on helping me to create an enjoyable environment to work in, focused on our clients and the quality of our workmanship.”
