Westpac goes for gold

Media Release: Westpac goes for gold

With three months to go until the opening ceremony of the 29th Olympic Games, Westpac is delighted to announce it is the official New Zealand financial services supporter of the New Zealand Olympic Committee and the New Zealand Olympic Team. Westpac is also partnering with TVNZ, the official broadcaster of the Olympic Games in NZ for the Olympic Games in Beijing this August.

“Westpac has a long history of helping to support New Zealanders through a range of worthwhile causes, and this partnership is another great way to do that,” says Ian Sutcliffe, General Manager of Marketing and Brand Experience. “The Olympic Games are a major focus for many New Zealanders and the whole country unites to support the Olympians representing New Zealand on the world stage. Through our association with the New Zealand Olympic Committee and TVNZ we’re able to help bring coverage of the games to New Zealand viewers.”

Mr Sutcliffe added that Westpac will be bringing the Olympic spirit to life for its customers in the lead up to and during the Olympic Games in August.

Commencing August 8, TVNZ will be broadcasting over 200 hours of Olympics coverage on TV ONE and for the first time will broadcast a dedicated Olympics channel on the Freeview platform.
