LCG is proud to announce a four-year global partnership with one of the world’s leading sportsmen, an individual with a formidable reputation and who embodies the values of LCG.
LCG’s new Global Brand Ambassador, Stan Wawrinka, is currently ranked the No. 3 tennis player in the world. Wawrinka is a three-time Grand Slam tournament winner. He has also won a gold medal for Switzerland at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and is a 2014 Davis Cup champion.
Wawrinka is the epitome of dedication and ambition, making him the ideal partner for LCG. He is a player with undeniable mental strength, impressive footwork and a powerful one-handed backhand of razor-sharp precision, which has taken him to the top of his sport.
"I have the greatest respect for Stan as a tennis player and also as an individual. I have watched his progress and was never more delighted for him when he won the 2016 US Open Tennis Championship.
He is a fighter who has achieved his world-renowned success on his own, through his commitment to hard work, channeling his natural skill and precision as a player.These are essential elements traders must demonstrate every day. Focus and precision, fast and reliable, with master strokes in timing. But, above all, a trader needs to have confidence in the systems and platforms he works with - certain of their integrity and reliability.
I am truly delighted that Stan Wawrinka will be the Global Brand Ambassador for LCG for the 2017 season and beyond and we look forward to celebrating his success as he takes his place among the tennis elite."
2016 has been a phenomenal year for me as a player and I am honoured to become a Global Brand Ambassador for LCG. LCG has a strong heritage in its market and a commitment to building its business into a world class player.
Corporate ambition is like sporting ambition. It requires dedication and focus. My tennis journey to success has not come without constantly trying to display these attributes and I have great admiration for those who can also harness them to achieve their dreams.Individual success invariably relies on strong partnerships and my own story is no different. I rely on the skills, expert knowledge and analysis of my team, as well as the best in sporting technology.
This is why I am delighted to be an ambassador for LCG - a company committed to investment in the right systems and techniques, all aimed at keeping its clients and partners ahead of the competition.
