Looking from the outside in, many may wonder why Avnet is partnering with a sports organization like the Arizona Diamondbacks. Actually, the “why” is easy.
The collaboration brings together two Arizona-based organizations that share a commitment to creating a best-in-class experience for customers, partners, fans, and their employees as well as an equal dedication to the communities they serve.
The partnership includes a strong community element including making an investment in Arizona’s youth.
“As a global company, we’re dedicated to serving the communities in which our employees live, work and play, and we are excited to support the Diamondback’s work on and off the field while collaborating to make a difference in our community.” said Avnet CEO Phil Gallagher. “We’re excited to start sharing the first of many education programs early next month.”
“It has been exciting to partner with locally-based Avnet primarily because of our aligned values that include a real commitment to our employees and our fans (customers) as well as a dedication to making a difference in the great state of Arizona through our community support and investments,” said D-backs President, CEO Derrick Hall. “We can’t wait to roll-out new youth-related community programs from STEM to reading to youth sports.”
