Pitch International Acquires Major Stake In D&G Group
Pitch International, a leading sports marketing agency, has announced a major investment in D&G Group, an events management company that specialises in corporate fundraising and hospitality experiences.
The investment is set to help D&G Group expand its global footprint and accelerate its growth trajectory.
Founded in 2010 by former Middlesex cricketer David Nash, D&G Group has built a reputation for organising unique customer experiences and corporate events that help raise funds for charitable causes.
Over the years, the company has worked with a range of high-profile clients, including ASOS, Argos, Holland & Barrett, Iceland, Rolls Royce, Bidfood, and PayPal, raising over GBP£25 million (AUD$45.31 million) for good causes.
Commenting on the investment, Pitch executive chairman, Oliver Slipper, said: “We’ve admired the D&G Group business for many years, having worked closely with them on hospitality and fundraising events including the recent successful Ukraine fundraising event Sport4Peace.”
“This investment will not only allow D&G to expand its offer more quickly providing even more for its current and new clients, but also adds another important service for Pitch International’s clients to take advantage of,” he said.
D&G Group founder, David Nash, added: “I’m incredibly proud of everything that we have achieved so far with D&G and I can’t thank our clients, partners and teams enough for being part of that journey.”
“The investment from Pitch International marks an exciting next step for the company and will allow us to fast-track our plans to create bigger and better hospitality offers, charitable platforms and industry leading programmes in the UK and abroad,” he said.
With Pitch International’s investment, D&G Group is expected to further enhance its fundraising and hospitality offerings, leveraging Pitch International’s expertise in media rights, event management, sponsorship sales, and production of sports films.
The move is also set to strengthen Pitch International’s client portfolio, adding D&G’s fundraising and hospitality expertise to its already impressive array of services.
