SAN JOSE, Calif. – June 20, 2018 – The San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) announced today a new, five-year corporate partnership with Druva, Inc. (@druvainc), the leader in cloud data protection and management. The partnership begins with the 2018-19 National Hockey League (@NHL) season.
The partnership includes three major components:
- The organizations’ shared commitment to social responsibility with Druva sponsoring the Sharks community reading outreach program “Reading Is Cool.” Druva will work with the Sharks to maintain and expand “Reading Is Cool” which already includes 1,200 local schools.
- Jointly working together on a social media component.
- Druva’s in-arena sponsorship of the “Penalty Kill” video board feature during Sharks home games.
“Since coming to San Jose in 1993, the Sharks have taken great pride in being a prominent member of the community and working with leading organizations headquartered here in Silicon Valley,” said Jonathan Becher (@jbecher), President of the San Jose Sharks. “Just as our team is committed to protecting the net, the team at Druva protects business critical cloud data in a way that puts them at the top of their game. We’re pleased to partner with an organization whose values so closely match our own.”
“We are excited to begin our new partnership with the San Jose Sharks,” said Sherry Lowe, Chief Marketing Officer, Druva. “Our commitment to social responsibility and data protection will play out in the programs we’ve sponsored with the Sharks’ organization. We are proud to sponsor the Sharks and share their desire to place an emphasis on and give back to the community. It’s a win-win for the Sharks and for Druva–two leaders who understand that winning is just part of the equation and that ultimately giving back is what inspires change.”
