National Leasing partners with 2017 Canada Summer Games
WINNIPEG -- National Leasing signed on to become an official supporter of the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg, a fitting new partnership for a sport-focused company.
“We’re ecstatic about this sponsorship,” says Tom Pundyk, president & CEO, National Leasing. “Sport is so ingrained in National Leasing’s culture – we have a team for just about everything – and we also have such deep roots in Winnipeg. We knew right away we’d be getting involved in this one.”
National Leasing, established and headquartered in Winnipeg, is also celebrating its 40th year in business in 2017. The company is celebrating this milestone birthday in a number of ways, including donating 400 volunteer hours to the 2017 Canada Summer Games. One National Leasing employee was the first person to register online as a Games volunteer.
“I’ve volunteered for a number of different community initiatives through National Leasing, but this one is especially exciting,” says Matt Bedard, digital marketing specialist, National Leasing and the first registered Games volunteer. “It’s going to be a huge event for our city, and I’m really looking forward to being at the centre of it as a volunteer. It’s great working for a company that recognizes the importance of this and encourages employees to get involved.”
Over the past four decades, National Leasing has been involved in thousands of community events and helped over 250,000 Canadian businesses grow through financial advice and equipment leasing, employing over 970 employees coast to coast along the way.
In appropriate fashion for an active, community-driven company celebrating its 40th birthday, National Leasing will present the pre-reception to the Canada Games Closing Ceremonies at Investors Group Field on Aug. 13. The 400-person guest list includes fellow sponsors, games officials and dignitaries from across the country.
