Infor Sponsors Top Tennis Player Jack Sock
Infor has selected Jack Sock, one of the world's top tennis players, in its first endeavor into sponsoring players in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).
What does this rising pro tennis player have in common with this leading business software company? Excellence.
"Jack's tenacity for striving towards excellence, on and off the court, are the same traits that Infor strives for in producing excellence in its software for our customers, so working with Jack is a natural fit for us," says Ashley Hart, Infor chief marketing officer. "We're thrilled to welcome Jack Sock into our expanding sports sponsorship portfolio."
Sock is currently the 3rd-ranked American male player and the 15th-ranked male player in the world. The 25-year-old has been a consistent force in the ATP rankings since he turned pro in 2011 and won the US Open Mixed Doubles title that year. He currently has four ATP titles—including Men's Doubles at Wimbledon in 2014—to go with his gold and bronze medals at the Rio Olympics. Sock reached a career high ranking of #8 in the world in November.
Sock expands Infor's sports sponsorship portfolio that already includes Ferrari, the Brooklyn Nets, Borussia Dortmund, Triumph, and Crusaders rugby.
"Our strategy is to develop the most forward, modern technologies for our customers, and we love working with driven individuals that are forward thinking, too," Hart says. "Jack shares our focus on success, so he's exactly the type of sports icon we love to support. He'll make a great ambassador for us in the tennis world."
