A former Scottish rugby captain and Deeside pupil has been given appointed to a new role at a North- east energy firm.
International energy consultancy Xodus Group have hired ex-Cults Academy pupil Jason White, who was capped 77 times for Scotland in Rugby Union, as a Business Performance Coach.
Educated at Cults Academy and George Watson’s in Edinburgh, Jason began his playing career with Aberdeen Wanderers and worked his way up the national age group teams.
He played for Glasgow until 2003 before joining English Premiership side Sale Sharks for six years, and then to ASM Clermont Auvergne for three years before retiring from rugby and moving into business.
Jason was first introduced to Xodus CEO Colin Manson six years ago when he was looking to work with a rugby player who could help raise the profile of the company. White joined as a sporting ambassador and his business relationship with the company has developed from there.
Jason said: “I’ll also be helping to embed lessons from sports that apply equally to the highly competitive business environment we operate in: never give up and keep persevering even when things aren’t going well. This is such a forward thinking company...”
