Chris White

Managing Director

Since the late 70s Chris White has practised as a Chartered Surveyor along the London to Birmingham M40 having been based in High Wycombe and Aylesbury, setting up a new practice in Banbury in 1988.

Chris has substantial Property experience along the M40. His areas of expertise include land assembly planning development and formal valuation and is involved in a number of large scale residential and commercial development and valuation projects in the region. He is extremely well connected with local authorities and companies in the area, having also served for 11 years as Chairman and President of the North Oxfordshire Chamber of Commerce well known throughout the industry for his ‘northern directness’ and sense of humour!

Chris is a proud ‘Teessider’ and is also a season ticket holder at Middlesbrough FC and loves tanks (of the military variety) and pill boxes.

The attached picture (click to enlarge) was taken at the Kubinka Tank Museum 60 miles west of Moscow where Chris received permission from the military authorities to inspect their superb tank collection. Unfortunately however the trip also coincided with Middlesbrough’s appearance in the UEFA Cup Final (their first European final) which took place on 10th May 2006 – Middlesbrough lost to Sevilla in the final!

Andrew is an active Rotary member and also exercises his penchant for beauty, tranquility and excitement by sailing a 7.9 metre yacht off the southern coast of Cornwall and trekking mountains in search of rock scrambles, exposed ridges and panoramic views!  These pursuits encouraged him in 2009 to undertake a 1,200 mile walking, cycling and kayaking challenge from the Scilly Isles to the Shetland Islands to raise money for schools for disabled children in Uganda.

He is now planning an Olympic Challenge for 2012 on behalf of Shelterbox (kayaking from Porthleven, Cornwall close to the charity’s HQ to Weymouth and arriving in time to entertain members of the Olympic sailing teams fromcountries where the aid has been distributed) which provides emergency shelter aid at times of disasters.
