LCI Partners, one of the leading business advisory firms in New South Wales, serving over 2,500 clients across Australia and New Zealand, has aligned with the Sharks.
Founded over 30 years ago and with office offices throughout Sydney, LCI Partners becomes the Official Sharks Membership Partner ahead of the kick-off to the 2021 season.
Following on from major sponsor announcements in recent weeks, Sharks CEO Dino Mezzatesta was excited there was a high level of corporate confidence in the Sharks brand and pleased to welcome LCI as partners of the Membership program.
“LCI Partners is well respected in their field, share similar values to the Sharks and are a perfect fit to be partnering up with our membership program,” Mezzatesta said.
“We welcome them on board and hope that this can be the start of a long-term relationship which not only benefits the Sharks and LCI, but also our members, players and staff through their expertise and the services they can provide.”
LCI Partners Director Gerry Incollingo was similarly thrilled to be joining forces with the Sharks and could foresee massive benefits for his organisation, the Cronulla club and for the Club’s membership base.
“I have always been a big fan of team sport and community so when the opportunity arose for us to partner with my favourite team, the Cronulla Sharks, we were excited to be on board” Mr Incollingo said.
“Supporting the current and up-and-coming players to do what inspires so many people across the country is always an initiative that we would want to get behind”
The new arrangement, which is for one season with an eye to extending the partnership into the future, will see LCI Partners offer advice and financial solutions, mortgage reviews and a five-minute financial health check to the Sharks membership base.
Ben Ross, Sharks Membership manager, revealed LCI Partners were also set to look after the Club’s 2021 members in another way, providing free scarfs to seated/ticketed members to help keep them warm during the cold winter months.
“LCI is a fantastic partner for our membership program, with our members to be the beneficiaries,” Ross said. “While the scarf, designed to feature Sharks and LCI branding, will be popular when the weather gets a little colder through winter, more significantly the financial health check and professional financial advice they offer will be extremely useful for any of our members in need of the services they offer.”
The LCI scarf will be available for all GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE, JRL and GA season ticket holders as part of their member packs.
They are available now to pick up from the Sharks Store, or at the Sharks first home game vs Raiders (Sharks membership recommends where possible members collect from the Sharks store to save time).
With an extensive range of financial services, LCI Partners work together with their clients to achieve business and individual goals.
From accounting and advisory services, where they provide a full range of management and taxation advice, to offering lending for first home buyers right through to businesses, Financial Planning, Legal, Property and Insurance services, LCI Partners has all financial and business solutions covered.
“With ASIC research showing 45% of Australians both need and want financial advice, coupled with the number of households currently in mortgage stress due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever to promote financial health and wellbeing and to help our community,” Incollingo added.
