Praise for Pertemps at Powerboat Awards

Pertemps Network Group’s contribution to raising the profile of Powerboat racing in the UK has been formally recognised.

The business has been involved with the sport for several years as main sponsor of John Wilson and Daisy Coleman, pilot and navigator of the Pertemps Network Group racing team.

At the first ever RYA Powerboat Racing Awards, the recruitment solutions provider was named as season winner in the ‘leading sponsorship of a powerboat racing team’ category.

Kent Thompson, Managing Director, said: “We have been a proud sponsor of John Wilson and Daisy Coleman for many years and, as a result, the brand of Pertemps has become synonymous with British Powerboat Racing. It gives us enormous pleasure to see our support being recognised by the RYA.

“After many years of success, it is sad to see John stepping down from the pilot’s seat – he has been a true ambassador for the sport and for Pertemps as a sponsor. However, with a new pilot behind the wheel, Sam Coleman, we are delighted to be continuing our association with P1 SuperStock and supporting the Coleman Racing Team. We wish Sam and Daisy every success in their 2016 campaign.”

The nomination was made by Daisy whose heartfelt nomination resonated with the judging panel as to just how much the sponsorship by Pertemps meant to her and the team, and how their support has made a difference not only out on the water but in enabling her to follow her passion and build her confidence.

Jeni Jelf, RYA Powerboat Racing Manager, commented: “We were delighted with the calibre of the entries we received in the award categories, demonstrating exactly how important the work and contribution these organisations and companies have on our sport and for our racers.

“The introduction of the industry awards goes some way to recognise them and we hope over the coming years these awards will go from strength to strength; making the judge’s job even tougher!”
