Computacenter extends partnership with Loughborough Sport
Computacenter today announces that we have extended our partnership with Loughborough Sport for the 2020/2021 academic year.
Having been sponsors of Loughborough Lightning Rugby and the Men’s Performance rugby union team for two years, we are delighted to increase this exposure by now becoming their headline sponsor. We will also sponsor the Loughborough Lightning Netball for the very first time.
Alongside the matchday and training-wear shirt sponsorship, we will also continue to look to recruit top quality students from Loughborough University into our award winning industrial placement and graduate training schemes. We are proud to be helping to develop top UK talent, and are pleased to also extend the use of Loughborough Sport’s mentoring and coaching opportunities to our employees.
For the previous two years Computacenter has held leadership development days and associate training on the Loughborough University campus, which will now be extended to further Computacenter teams under the new agreement with Loughborough Sport.
Recently the team at Loughborough Sport delivered a range of virtual events at our 2020 Sales Summit, focusing on how to Think Well, Eat Well, Exercise Well and Sleep Well. Using their performance support team and a host of inspiring elite athletes, they shared the holistic approach they take to keep performance at the highest level. These interactive sessions shared advice on how to keep focused, energised and reach your goals to support the well-being and performance of Computacenter’s sales teams.
John Beard, Director of Services Sales at Computacenter said:
“We are incredibly excited to build on the relationship we have developed with Loughborough over the last two years. As we anticipated, our organisations share a common set of winning together values and that alignment has shone through in all the work that we have undertaken.
“We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of the Lightning and Men’s performance rugby team and to expand our coverage to support the Lightning Netball squad. In addition to the sporting engagements we have seen incredible value in having access to the world-class facilities and resources that Loughborough has to offer.”
“Moving forwards, we will look to encourage more Loughborough students into our award-winning Graduate schemes as well as work further with Loughborough to help our existing staff become the best they can be.”
Jo Simpson, Commercial and Facilities Director at Loughborough Sport said:
“Strong leadership is a vital component to success and by providing training days and mentorship to Computacenter’s employees we hope to help create the leaders of tomorrow.
“Over the past two years we’ve enjoyed a strong relationship and we’re thrilled that Computacenter have agreed to extend their contract with us.
“Their continued support of our Lightning and performance programmes is massively appreciated and we’re really looking forward to the next phase.”
