LONDON, England – Elegant West Indies international cricketer, Kieran Powell, has sealed an exciting brand ambassador deal with multi award-winning US design, marketing and branding agency, NEWMEDIA.COM.
Powell, the dashing left-handed batsman who recently enjoyed historic success as Captain of the West Indies A team versus the England Lions, is part of the West Indies senior team that are currently playing against Sri Lanka in the Caribbean, where he scored a blistering 88 runs in the first match of the series which saw the West Indies surge ahead to a 1-0 lead.
As part of his brand ambassador role with NEWMEDIA, Powell will collaborate with the firm on a diverse group of projects in a move that will catapult the star cricketer’s business and commercial portfolio to a global audience.
“This is a tremendous and significant affiliation for me. NEWMEDIA is a highly respected leader of design and marketing innovation in the United States. There are remarkable, new and ongoing, developments and trends in this area and I am thrilled to be aligning my public profile with a firm of NEWMEDIA’s superiority and calibre. They resonate with my own ethos of excellence, assiduousness and accomplishment.” Powell said of the partnership, ahead of the first ever day-night Test match in the Caribbean, set to take place at the iconic Kensington Oval in Barbados on June 23rd.
The gifted batsman, a former student of the exclusive Millfield school in Somerset, England, has had a fascinating international sporting career. While he has long been viewed as a prized cricketing talent for the West Indies elite team and plays a key role in the senior men’s squad, Powell also made global headlines in recent years when he was pursued by US Major League baseball franchises, including the famed Los Angeles Dodgers who contacted his agent after glimpsing video footage of him.
Steve Morris, CEO of NEWMEDIA, stated that the collaboration with Powell added a monumental new dimension to the thriving company, who have branches throughout the United States, including in New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
“Kieran’s presence as brand ambassador for NEWMEDIA is thrilling for us as partnering with an international sports star synergizes perfectly with our plans to augment and emulate our success in the United States, to a far-wider global audience. Kieran has brought so many impressive ideas to the table which we are incredibly excited about. He is extremely intelligent, astute, disciplined and results-driven – all fundamental elements to sporting and business success. We are looking forward to a long and abundant relationship with Kieran.”
