Westpac team up
The Fiji International is delighted to partner with Westpac Banking Corporation for this year’s prestigious staging of the tournament.
Westpac will be the official Bank of the 2016 Fiji International. “We have been monitoring the development of the Fiji International over the past two years and have been impressed with the footprint the tournament is making both domestically and internationally,” said Brett Hooker, general manager for the Westpac Banking Corporation in Fiji. “Our customers love the event and it brings important global exposure for the Fiji tourism industry – and Westpac is proud to be the bank supporting Fiji to expand its tourism markets.”
Westpac’s partnership with the Fiji International comes during a year of growth for the tournament which is now co-sanctioned by the European Tour and ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia and will feature World Number 21 Brandt Snedeker and three-time major champion Vijay Singh.
“Partnering with Westpac as the Official Bank of the Fiji International is an exciting development for the tournament,” said Matt Porm, Commercial Manager for the Fiji International.
Before the Fiji International is staged at Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course on October 6-9, Westpac will help promote the tournament across Fiji via the upcoming “Give Golf A Go” campaign. “The Fiji International and Westpac teams have already begun working on a number of exciting initiatives in the lead up to the tournament that will see us engaging with local communities to introduce golf at the grass roots level,” Porm said. Westpac is committed to providing the people of Fiji with a range of overseas banking solutions inclusive of various personal and business loans, bank accounts, internet banking and term deposits and it’s their loyal customers who are set to benefit from Westpac’s relationship with the Fiji International.
