Carlton IN Business (CIB) has announced a two-year deal that will see equity-based, risk-management company, Austbrokers become a co-major sponsor alongside Virgin Australia for the next two years.
The announcement of this deal further illustrates CIB’s growth as the largest corporate network in Australian sport with 136 members nationally.
Austbrokers and AUB Group chief executive officer, Michael Emmett, said the partnership is a great chance to support and grow not only Carlton’s business presence but also the wider AFL community as well.
“This sponsorship presents a wonderful opportunity to support the AFL community while presenting Austbrokers with national branding, promotional opportunities and associations in new business segments.
“The CIB network of more than 130 companies across a wide range of industries will give Austbrokers a pathway into networking opportunities, and we are excited to grow this partnership over the coming years,” Mr Emmett said.
Carlton CEO, Cain Liddle, said the club is excited to have Austbrokers onboard with CIB for the next two years.
“We are very excited to have Austbrokers become our co-major partner of Carlton IN Business alongside Virgin Australia.
“We see it as a fantastic alignment which will offer great value for our network given Austbrokers’ reputation for tailored service and value,” Mr Liddle said.
In addition to the partnership with CIB, Austbrokers will also join the Carlton Football Club as a gold partner, which will see them be directly associated with a marquee player, yet to be announced.
