RICHMOND, Va., July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Elephant Auto Insurance is pleased to announce being a supporting sponsor of the Richmond Kickers in their upcoming soccer match against Swansea City AFC of the English Premier League.
The decision to partner with the Richmond Kickers was an easy one for Elephant. With their headquarters in Richmond, VA, Elephant is dedicated to being involved with the local community, and is always looking for opportunities to help their hometown thrive and succeed.
With roots originating back to their UK-based parent company, the Admiral Group, Elephant continues to follow in their footsteps by supporting local sports teams. Admiral currently has an office located in Swansea, Wales, so the upcoming match on July 16th will present an exciting international match up for both Elephant and Admiral.
"We're proud to sponsor our hometown soccer team, and supporting the local sports community is one of the most Richmond things we can do," said Greg Minkler, Marketing Director of Elephant. "We're incredibly excited to see the Kickers take on Swansea City AFC, and it's a fun way to have some friendly inter-company rivalry from both Elephant and Admiral."
Richmond's wide availability of a qualified and talented local workforce, as well as the growing trend of Virginia consumers going online for their auto insurance, has contributed to Elephant's success both here in its hometown, as well as nationally. Recently named one of the 2015 Best Places to Work in Virginia – the annual list of "Best Places to Work" created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group, Elephant is always looking to add to its growing staff.
