Zaun excited to announce newcomer to the team


We are excited to announce our new Business Development Manager, Mat White, will be joining the team in January 2020.

Zaun have a long-standing relationship with Mat White, going back over several years and his appointment will further strengthen our team.

Mat spent over 12 years working for Hardstaff Barriers, starting out as a plant operator and quickly progressing through the ranks to site supervisor and then Operations Manager, tasked with overseeing both Highways and Security Projects.

As the UK terrorist threat increased, Mat worked closely alongside the National Barrier Asset (NBA) as Project Manager to help design, program and deploy security measures for various high-profile events including Nuclear Security Summit (Holland), Champions League Final, G5 and NATO conferences.

In 2014 Mat pursued a new opportunity working for Highway Care initially as Project Manager on security and major highways contracts and more recently as Commercial Manager and Director for H2S2 a joint venture business between Highway Care and Hardstaff/Hill & Smith.

Mat said, “I’m really excited to be joining the Zaun team and can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into my new role, while strengthening long term customer relationships and opening new doors to help create a sustainable future for the business. Zaun is picking up momentum thanks to the high-quality products it manufactures and the dedicated and enthusiastic team that represent the business.”

Zaun Sales Director Chris Plimley said on the appointment of Mat, “Mat brings a wealth of experience to Zaun in the high security environment. He has worked alongside Zaun in various high profile critical projects over the years where not only his product and design experience has proved invaluable but also his ability to communicate at all levels from the teams on the ground to the end client means there is a confidence that the project gets over the line. I’m delighted to welcome Mat into the team.
