Spirit Executive makes National news!
Spirit Executive are pleased to announce that we are strengthening our relationship with our local BBL Premiership team and have increased our sponsorship with the Worcester Wolves this season to include the courtside board, the baskets and our new player George Beamon, who we tip for a great season.
We are proud to be sponsoring another of our local sports teams, we are a real advocate of the Wolves as it’s not just sport they encourage local community engagement and bring together local schools and businesses within the Herefordshire and Worcestershire region. A massive well done to Worcester Wolves who have already progressed to the BBL quarter finals! #WOLFPACK
‘Barton Willmore appoints first infrastructure and energy director’.
Congratulations and well done to Ben Lewis and his new and exciting challenge with Barton Willmore. We are really proud to be a part of the team at Barton Willmore and look forward to working with you in the future, it’s nice to work with a business that values its employees and is prepared to invest in their future.
Spirit Executive is proud to announce we will be sponsoring Frankie Gavin in his upcoming fight at the Barclaycard Arena on the 13th May, Frankie held the British welterweight title from 2012 to 2015; the Commonwealth welterweight title twice, from 2013 to 2014; and challenged Kell Brook for the IBF welterweight title in 2015.
Steve Edwards Managing Partner of Spirit Executive said “Frankie performed really well in his last outing against Sam Eggington silencing a lot of critics and winning some real support amongst the boxing fraternity, he lost that fight but everyone who knows about boxing has been talking about that fight being one of the best fights of the year, people need to remember he has only lost 2 other times once at European and then World level to Kell Brook, so he is no fool, however I really do think with the changes he has made he can go on and claim more belts at the top level.
It’s also great to support a fellow Birmingham City fan and local hero for many up and coming children in the boxing community. As an amateur, Gavin won lightweight gold at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and then won a gold medal in the lightweight division at the 2007 World Championships, becoming England’s first ever World Amateur Champion at that event, but he has always been a real ambassador for Boxing in the midlands and Spirit are happy to support people with that kind of pedigree whenever we can”.
