Nathan Jones joins CAVU Designwerks as COO

Congratulations to Nathan Jones, Vice President of the TEA International Board of Directors, on his new position at CAVU Designwerks.

CAVU Designworks specializes in designing and engineering new immersive ride systems. Following a long track record at both WhiteWater and Vekoma, Jones recently took the COO role at the company, which is based in British Columbia, Canada. Peter Schnabel is CEO. 

"My primary focus will be on the operations of the company," said Jones in an interview with InPark Magazine. "I will ensure we deliver on contracts from signing through commissioning and completion. The complexity and integration of CAVU’s attractions requires a rigorous, process-driven implementation involving contributions from a multidisciplinary team. Our customers expect projects to be on-time and on-budget and I will be working with the team to ensure that we deliver on both those goals."
