Over the course of almost 25 years at JCB, he held a number of senior sales and marketing positions focused on the construction and groundcare industries.

Commenting on his appointment, White said, “I’m really pleased to be joining Kubota and heading up the Construction Division. The product range has a fantastic reputation for quality and reliability, and even though Kubota leads the mini-excavator market in the UK and Ireland, there is still a huge opportunity for further growth.”

“I am looking forward to working with my team, our customers, and the fantastic Kubota dealer network as we continue to deliver growth for mini-excavators, tracked dumpers and compact loaders.
