Together Sale Sharks

Together teams up with Premiership rugby club

Together has announced a new sponsorship deal with Premiership rugby union team Sale Sharks.

The lender’s name will feature on the team’s kits next season as part of a two-year partnership that will run until June 2019. 

Marc Goldberg, commercial CEO at Together (pictured above, second left), said: “As we continue to grow our business, creating more jobs and increasing our channels of distribution, it’s important that we increase our brand awareness and we’re delighted to be teaming up with Sale Sharks as we set out on this exciting new chapter.

“We share many core values, such as teamwork and respect, with a focus on striving to deliver the best possible outcome, and feel that there is a really positive synergy in our working together.

“Sale Sharks are acknowledged as one of the leading rugby union clubs in Europe and are a credit to the North West, so we’re very much looking forward to becoming their sponsor for the next two seasons and are confident it will be a winning combination.”

The news comes less than a month after Together appointed a new corporate development director.

The Cheadle-based lender now employs more than 500 employees, having created 126 new jobs last year alone.

Mark Cueto, commercial director at Sale Sharks and former England international rugby union player (pictured above, left), added: "We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Together and look forward to seeing their name on our kit from September.

“Theirs is a business that has grown in size and stature to become a leader in its field and one of the top companies in the North West, so it’s a good fit for us and I know our players will make them proud.”
