Fujitsu General Australiarecently hosted an unforgettable evening as team members, dealers, and guests across Australia and New Zealand gathered to honour a remarkable milestone by celebrating 25 years of partnership and collaboration with the brand’s esteemed ambassador, cricket legend Mark Taylor.
The event took place on Thursday 8 June and was hosted by radio host and Taylor’s long-time friend, Ben Fordham. Guests enjoyed a candid conversation between Taylor and Fordham, as well as a series of featured interviews with Taylor’s family, friends, and his Fujitsu family.
Philip Perham, managing director, Fujitsu General Australia and New Zealand, said, “Mark has been the embodiment of our brand, representing us with unwavering dedication and passion throughout the years. The gala dinner was a tribute to his exceptional journey with us. We reminisced about the milestones we achieved together and the successes we celebrated as a united team. It was a night filled with laughter, gratitude, and a shared sense of accomplishment.”
Taylor is well known for his prowess on the cricket pitch, establishing himself as a vital figure in Australian cricket and becoming Australia’s 39th Test captain in 1994. In 1999, Taylor was awarded Australian of the Year, in 2000 he was awarded an Australian Sports Medal, and in 2001 he received the Centenary Medal for his services to the community and cricket. Mark was inducted into the Australian Sports Hall of Fame in 2002, Awarded Order of Australia in 2003 and inducted into the cricket hall of fame in 2011.
Taylor’s ambassadorship with Fujitsu General Australia was originally established in 1998 and is one of the longest personal endorsement agreements in Australia. For 25 years, Taylor has been a highly valued member of the Fujitsu family and has become as synonymous with the Fujitsu brand as he is with the sporting world, thanks to his illustrious cricketing achievements and ongoing dedication to his work.
Philip Perham said, “Mark has done a fantastic job as brand ambassador for Fujitsu General by being his authentic self, a magical quality we continue to cherish. His bright personality and values are perfectly aligned with those of Fujitsu General, as are his well-known traits of being caring, respectful, collaborative, and inclusive. His partnership is one we value deeply, and hope will continue into the future. Congratulations Mark: 25 years not out!”
It is clear from the celebrations that working so closely to make a difference and sharing the same values and passions has built a close relationship between Taylor and Fujitsu General staff and dealers.
One of those passions is the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation, which receives a donation from Fujitsu General for every air conditioner sold. In 1996, Taylor became a founding member of the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation, which was formed to help minimise cancer’s impact on families.
The foundation has raised millions of dollars since its creation, providing mobile home care units and outreach programs for children with cancer living in regional areas.
Working with Taylor, Fujitsu General Australia has been a proud major sponsor of the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation and, to date, has donated more than $10 million to help fund outreach programs and explore better ways to treat and overcome cancer, particularly in children.
