Titans secure three new sponsors
They have scored back-to-back victories in the Telstra Premiership and things are also looking up off the field for the Titans with the announcement of three new sponsors effective immediately.
While the search for a major sponsor continues, the Titans have come to terms with companies representing major national industries in TFH (Temporary Fench Hire), LEDified and Gold Training.
TFH will become the chest plate sponsor of the Titans' NRL team for 2015, LEDified will feature on the back of the shorts and Gold Training is the new front of jersey sponsor for the Titans' Holden Cup team.
Having been through a torrid period, club CEO Graham Annesley is confident that these announcements represent the beginning of a prosperous new phase for the Titans.
"I believe this is a strong indication that the club is regaining the confidence of the business community," Annesley said.
"We are very excited to welcome our new partners to the Titans sponsorship family and look forward to working with them to help their businesses grow and prosper."
TFH are the largest privately family owned and operated temporary fencing supplier in Australia with an extensive range of associated Australian produced hire products.
"TFH Hire Services Pty Ltd are proud to be sponsors of the Gold Coast Titians 'Thru-n-Thru'," said TFH CFO Leesa Gill. "Our nationwide network of branches enables us to help build the support of the Gold Coast Titans throughout Australia by linking in our customer base and various advertising campaigns and social media releases."
Former Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett is the chairman of LEDified Lighting and said their commitment should be seen as a show of faith in the future direction of the Titans.
"We are aware of the challenges that have confronted the club in recent times but we feel that the club is going in the right direction with the right people at the helm," said Kennett, who has also been president of the Hawthorn Football Club. "We believe that the association will be mutually beneficial as we look to grow our respective organisations."
With a 20 per cent rise in memberships in 2015, coach Neil Henry said it was wonderful news for the club on the eve of their Anzac Day clash with the Warriors in New Zealand.
"It's always a great feeling when a club is signing new sponsors," Henry said.
"The positive vibe that comes from adding new sponsors is not restricted to the administration staff with our coaching staff and players equally sharing in the positive feeling that comes with off-field wins."
