Singapore, 18 June, 2013 – Prudential Assurance Company Singapore (Pte) Limited (“Prudential Singapore”) has named Quincy Quek the golf ambassador for the company. The sponsorship of the young professional golfer will help to support his sporting endeavors, while also helping to promote the sport.
Prudential Singapore undertook the title sponsorship of the Causeway Trophy to encourage the development of a sports culture in Singapore, promote the interest in golf, and make golf more accessible to Singaporeans. In addition to this, the company will also organise golf clinics for school children, golf days and charity fundraisers through golfing events.
Twenty-six year-old Quincy, who performed well at the recent inaugural Prudential Causeway Trophy tournament, will be sporting the Prudential logos on his golf T-shirt and bag. He will also be conducting golf clinics and playing at the golf events sponsored by Prudential.
“We are proud to be supporting a talented individual like Quincy. He has the potential and tenacity to do well in his career and we hope our contribution will help him achieve his goals. This sponsorship is also our way to promote local sportsmen and encourage the growth of a sports culture in Singapore,” said Tomas Urbanec, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Singapore.
"It is a great honor to represent Prudential as their golf ambassador. Prudential is a brand I personally can relate to. It is reliable, and like me, believes in the value of long-term planning,” remarked Quincy. “Sponsors are the lifeline of any professional athlete trying to make a career out of their sport. With Prudential's help, I hope to contribute more to the development of golf in Singapore. There is a lot of potential among our junior golfers, it's just about creating opportunities for them to shine," he added.
