Gallagher Agrees to Three-Year Partnership With Leading Swiss Snowboarders
Gallagher has agreed a multi-year partnership with leading snowboarding pair Ladina Jenny and Dario Caviezel.
Gallagher has a global commitment with sports both at a professional and grassroots level, and this agreement will see Gallagher sponsor Dario and Ladina for the next three years, during which the World Championships 2025 will take place in Switzerland and the Winter Olympics 2026 in Italy.
Ladina Jenny has been snowboarding since the age of eight and is on the Swiss snowboarding national team. She is currently ranked third in the world. She represented Switzerland in the World Championships in March this year, became vice world champion and has represented her country in three Olympic Winter Games in 2014, 2018 and 2022.
Dario Caviezel received his first snowboard at the age of four and is a two-time Snowboarding World Cup winner, achieving eight podium finishes in total. He represented Switzerland in the Snowboarding World Championships this year and also became vice world champion and won the bronze medal. He participated in the Winter Olympics in 2018 and 2022.
Stephan Bachman, CEO of Gallagher in Switzerland, said: "Snowboarding offers high-octane action and is hugely entertaining to watch. We are thrilled to team up with Ladina and Dario to bring our global brand to winter sports enthusiasts across the world. We have strong affiliations to sports globally and this builds further on our existing partnerships. We already support a significant client base of sports professionals to provide insurance and risk management services and this agreement will extend our reach further."
Ladina said, "We're delighted to agree this partnership with Gallagher and look forward to working together over the coming years in what is set to be a very exciting time for winter sports. Partnerships like this are essential to our success and having a brand like Gallagher on board demonstrates the increasing profile of winter sports on the global stage."
