November 22, 2007, Vancouver, BC – Colliers International and the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association today announced a three-year partnership in which Colliers will be an official sponsor of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Team.
“At Colliers, we pride ourselves on bringing innovation and leadership to our business and clients, and the Canadian Freestyle Ski Team represents exactly those qualities,” says Ron Bagan, Managing Director of Collier’s Vancouver office. “This is also going to be something our employees can really rally around, as we get closer to the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Our goal as a company is to ‘Accelerate the Success’ of both our clients and employees. We’ve been very impressed by the Association’s commitment to success and view this as an opportunity for us to contribute to the development of these young champions.”
Colliers International will become the sponsor of the Moguls event at the FIS Freestyle World Cup to be held at Cypress Mountain just outside Vancouver; and a gold sponsor at the FIS World Cup at Mont Gabriel outside of Montreal (the Canada Post Freestyle Grand Prix). Dates for the events this year will be January 25-27 at Ski Mont Gabriel, and February 8-10 at Cypress Mountain. Colliers will also become an Official Supplier to the Canadian Freestyle Team.
Peter Judge, CEO of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association says the support from sponsors is critical to the athletes’ success. “We enjoy some great corporate support already from sponsors like Canada Post, Bell and RBC. Colliers International has already proven that they are totally committed to our athletes and our events so I know that this is going to strengthen our program and help raise the profile of our athletes. Corporate support from companies like these is so important – both financially and psychologically. We truly value this partnership.”
