Nine Feet Tall, a management consultancy based in Bath, is pleased to announce a one year sponsorship deal with one of England’s best surfers, Tom Butler. Tom, recently ranked 5th in the Open Men’s European division, is Nine Feet Tall’s first official sponsored surfer. Born and raised in Newquay, Tom’s sponsorship is part of an ongoing commitment by the company to help nurture local sporting talent.
Announcing the new sponsorship was Nine Feet Tall’s Founder and CEO, Esther McMorris, who said, “We are delighted to announce the sponsorship of pro surfer Tom Butler. Surfing reflects many of the qualities we search for in our own team - determination, work ethic and the drive to succeed. We believe strong values are critical to success in both business and sport, and it is an incredibly proud moment for me to announce our support for Tom.”
Nine Feet Tall has a long history of supporting sporting organisations. It currently sponsors several Bath Rugby players and is the club’s Official Business Training Partner. The company also has strong links with the Rugby Business Network and the Welsh Rugby Players Association.
Tom shared, “I’m thrilled to be working with Nine Feet Tall. I learned long ago that adaptability is a key skill to have if you want to gain a competitive advantage, whether that is in surfing or further afield in business. This shared ethos is one of the many reasons as to why this is such an exciting partnership.”
