New deal a PLUS for Sharks

The Cronulla Sharks have joined forces with finance and leasing services company LeasePLUS in what can be described as an Australian first.

One of Australia’s most respected financial services companies, LeasePLUS have partnered with the Sharks to offer a wide range of vehicle finance and leasing services to the clubs’ wider corporate network of clients, members, sponsors and fans, as well as to organisations within the Sutherland Shire and wider Sydney community.

These services include Novated and Operating leases, Fleet Management, Vehicle sourcing and a range of other salary packaging opportunities.

To be known as SharksPLUS, the new business officially opened its doors in early March and will be powered by the experienced team at LeasePLUS, a company which operates under the same values of quality, respect, growth and courage that they began with over a decade ago.

Mr Aytunc Tezay, Group Managing Director at LeasePLUS explained that SharksPLUS has come about after a lot of hard work with the final product set to become a potential bonus to a wide range of Sharks stakeholders.

“We have worked with the Executive team at Cronulla Sharks for the past six months to bring this program together and we are not aware of any other initiative like it in Australia and especially in the NRL,” Mr Tezay said. “LeasePLUS were impressed with the desire for the Cronulla Sharks to provide its supporters and sponsors with what can be described as a highly valuable and tangible benefit in relation to their motor vehicles.”

Peter Legg, the Sharks General Manager Finance and Corporate Services expressed a similar belief, confident this new initiative would provide financial advantages for all concerned.

“The Sharks have a great network of corporate support, including many businesses small and large and we believe we can offer them and their staff a way to save money, while also supporting the Sharks in a different way,” Legg added.

LeasePLUS focuses on delivering a stress free process for clients looking to secure a new vehicle, with long term cost-savings with further additional benefits.

They have also made a significant investment in technology to create advanced systems across its broad range of products and services, with SharksPLUS having immediate access to this advanced technology delivering client centric solutions with a minimum of fuss to its clients.

LeasePLUS further supports the relationship with the Sharks through its knowledge and experience across a broad range of industries including healthcare, emergency services and other corporate sectors.

However it is LeasePLUS’s industry leading customer service to both the employers and their employees that remain the major platform for future growth and success and makes LeasePLUS certain they can deliver significant value to this newly formed partnership with the Sharks.

Sharks and LeasePLUS in car sponsor deal

NRL club Cronulla has established a joint venture with sponsor LeasePLUS to provide novated car leasing services.

The two entities have established a separate company, SharksPLUS, that will attempt to source clients from within the football club’s sponsors and small-to-medium-sized businesses in the Cronulla shire in Sydney’s south.

LeasePLUS founder and group managing director Aytunc Tezay says the Sharks and his company will share in any profits the joint venture makes. “What will happen is that the Sharks will handle the promotion and marketing side of the business and Lease­PLUS will stand behind it and offer the novated car leasing services,” Tezay says.

The entity has already been established legally and has begun operating ahead of a full launch before the Sharks home game against the New Zealand Warriors on April 5.

Tezay says the business will aim to win support from Sharks existing and prospective sponsors and will appeal to the SME market in the Cronulla shire.

“This is going to be a perpetual ­on-going concern with no expiry date. The success of the venture will dictate the length of the deal.”

The Sharks have been attempting to sign sponsors after a year of off-field issues, including being heavily fined by the NRL, and coach Shane Flanagan being suspended in relation to a investigation by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority into the team’s conditioning program in 2011.

Message to all our supporters

To all our followers and friends – thank you for your support. It has been an exhausting two months, but what a tremendous outcome.

To quote Tony Abbott’s open letter to the car industry, employers and employees, the FBT changes are “null and void”.

This is a wonderful outcome for the hundreds of thousands of workers who access a car under the FBT arrangements; the NFP, health, aged and community services sectors who utilise these arrangements and for the local manufacturing, car leasing and broader automotive industries.

Its back to business as usual for our customers, staff and suppliers.

Thank you.

Aytunc Tezay

LeasePLUS Group Managing Director
