Jim Ryan, CEO of ersg, said:
“Being Irish myself, I am personally delighted to be sponsoring the Dublin Racing Festival in Leopardstown. This is the third year ersg, as a business, have attended the Festival as part of our internal staff incentive program and following the announcement of our new office in Dublin in October we felt this was the right time to show our support to the local area and to use this as an opportunity to meet with our Clientele.”
Vicki Donlon, Marketing & Sponsorship Manager at Leopardstown Racecourse, said:
“We are delighted to welcome ersg as a partner at Leopardstown, it is through the support of our sponsors and Horse Racing Ireland that Dublin Racing Festival has established itself so prominently in the National Hunt calendar and that prize money can once again be raised. We hope that this will further strengthen the quality and breadth of the runners over the weekend. We are very grateful for ersg’s generous support and we look forward to making this a very successful partnership.”
