Gordon White - Managing Director

A little about Gordon ...

I’m the vintage member of the fatBuzz team, I founded the business back in 1986 – before most of the team were actually born!  So, sometimes they listen to me and sometimes they ignore the ‘old guy’ in the corner, but I do like to think I still have some influence over the direction of the business.
