There is a great synergy between his family-run company’s working culture and the core values of rugby including team spirit, performance, pride and respect.
Says Gwenhael: “This is a great opportunity to raise local brand awareness, to support the local community and to invite our clients to join us for action packed days out at the ground. There is a natural fit between the club and the company and lots of opportunities to work together and support each other.”
