Xn, a leading provider of software solutions for the leisure industry, is pleased to announce the appointment of Phil White as its new Chief Product Officer (CPO). With over 30 years of experience in operational leisure facility management, Phil brings extensive industry knowledge and expertise to his new role.
Phil’s career in the leisure industry began in 1989 at Littledown Leisure Centre in Bournemouth, where he started as an admin manager. Over time, he took on increasing responsibilities, including overseeing the leisure management system and serving as the admin finance manager. His forward-thinking approach and openness to new technologies led to the implementation of several innovative ideas at the leisure centre.
In 1997, Phil joined DC Leisure, a facility management company, where he served as the sole IT person in the business. Over the next 26 years, he built up the technology team to 15 members and oversaw the management of over 100 leisure facilities across the country. Phil played a pivotal role in the development of Xn Leisure’s systems, serving as the voice of the customer and chairing the exec user group.
As the newly appointed CPO for Xn, Phil’s primary focus will be on strategy and development, with a customer-centric approach. He aims to lead the company into the next generation of products by transitioning to cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions and leaving behind legacy systems. He emphasises the importance of being a solution partner to Xn’s customers, offering end-to-end solutions and serving as a trusted business advisor.

As CPO, I aim to position Xn as a trusted partner for our customers, offering integrated solutions and guidance. Our vision is to be the first point of contact for customers seeking new opportunities or seeking to enhance their digital and transformation strategies.”
