In the last twelve months, the profile of numero has grown substantially thanks to new projects around the globe for clients including Thomas Cook, Lifestyle Services Group (part of the Phones4U Group), Bahamas Telecommunications Company, JD Sports, Cable & Wireless Communications, Express Gifts and Serco. The numero brand is now present on contact centre and back office workstations throughout the UK and across the world and this profile is set to continue with a record number of business transformation projects in progress for 2013.
At the same time, the name of golfer Jamie Donaldson has attained a higher profile and presence on the international golf scene. Thanks to an incredible 12 months that includes top ten finishes in major championships, victory in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and Irish Opens and prize winnings in excess of £1 million, the Stockport-based player has risen to the world’s top 30. With this success, Jamie’s schedule for 2013 is packed with tournaments alongside his peer group of the best in the sport including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald, Ian Poulter and many other Ryder Cup stars.
Today we are proud to announce that these names are coming together thanks to a sponsorship deal that will see Jamie carry the numero logo on his shirt in a number of high profile American tournaments, starting with the world’s most exclusive tournament, The Masters at Augusta, which starts on 11 April 2013.
Under the terms of the sponsorship agreement, Jamie will be a brand ambassador for numero. The player has been chosen for many reasons, most notably the similarities he shares with a business that has risen to prominence thanks to performance excellence. Like Jamie, numero is now respected internationally and both are predicted to have their most successful years in the twelve months ahead.
In keeping with the unique numero style of business, the association with Jamie isn’t restricted to logo sponsorship. numero clients, colleagues and associates will have the opportunity to gain a closer insight to the life of an international sportsman. From playing in golf games to going inside the ropes at tournaments with Jamie; having one-to-one access through Twitter and meeting over dinner – our involvement with Jamie will be exciting, insightful and original. This sponsorship will build on the successful association numero has enjoyed with Simon Khan, another European Tour star.
Further details on our golf sponsorship plans and activities will be announced on this site in the build-up to the Masters tournament – the first major championship of 2013. In the interim our CEO, Guy Colclough sums up today’s announcement as follows:
“Success on a global stage over the past 12 months has been immensely satisfying for the numero team – essentially because it is built on the performance improvements of our clients. We wanted to mark the completion of our most successful year to date and commencement of a year with record order books with something special. The deal with Jamie Donaldson is special and will provide our clients with the added assurance that numero is not only a proven business transformation partner but also one that is seen around the world on the screens of users and fairways of international tournaments.”
