Melbourne, Australia (September 13, 2000) PowerServe, Australia’s leading full service provider of global eBusiness solutions, today signed a primary sponsorship agreement with Australia’s number one Walker, Nathan Deakes.

The sponsorship of Mr Deakes by PowerServe is effective immediately and will see Nathan competing under the PowerServe banner in Australia as well as on the international race circuit.

PowerServe Chief Executive, Mr rob van der End said “the opportunity to sponsor a leading athlete like Nathan displays the company’s eagerness to present itself on an international stage.“

Nathan brings to PowerServe a face, talent and energy that depicts many of our organisations culture traits. He is also a quiet achiever, like we are in business. His hard work and determination have ensured success throughout the various stages of his sporting career.

“He will also make a wonderful ambassador representing our company. And it is a great feeling to be able to sponsor an acclaimed international athlete who is also an Australian,” Mr van der End said.

A Nathan Deakes website has been prepared for the Olympic Games – www.nathandeakes.com > which will give insights to competition schedules and event details.

According to Mr Deakes: “The new sponsorship partnership with PowerServe couldn’t have come at a more opportune time, considering the Sydney Olympic Games just around the corner.”

“With the assistance of PowerServe, I am able to purse my goals and dreams not only in the immediate future, but in the long term also!”

“With the support and strength of PowerServe behind me, the opportunities presented to me to improve not only in a sporting sense, but also in a personal one, are endless.”
