ITM CEO, Darrin Hughes, confirmed the news at last night’s ITM 2018 Awards evening where he was joined by Emirates Team New Zealand members including Peter Burling, Blair Tuke and Sean Regan.
In addition to the partnership, ITM is also responsible for providing the building materials Emirates Team New Zealand is using at its new base near the Viaduct Events Centre in the heart of the America’s Cup Village.
Materials are also being used at the team’s North Shore site in Auckland where they will build their own America’s Cup boats, which is a first in the history of the syndicate.
Emirates Team New Zealand CEO, Grant Dalton, says: “ITM started as a business from just a small group who believed in the potential of a collective effort, this really reflects our own values and we’re thrilled to have their support as we embark on our next campaign.
"We are passionate about what we do for New Zealand and with the support of ITM stores up and down the country, we’re looking forward to sharing our journey with more Kiwis through this partnership.”
