DALLAS, TX — February 25, 2021 — Slync.io, a global leader in logistics operating process and system orchestration for global logistics providers and shippers, expands its investment in the world of professional golf, announcing its newest partnership with European and PGA Tour professional, Erik van Rooyen.
As part of the multi-year partnership, repped by JMC Sport, van Rooyen will serve as a global brand ambassador for Slync.io. Van Rooyen will wear the Slync.io logo on his left chest, beginning this week at the 2021 World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, FL.
Van Rooyen won twice in 2017, first on the Sunshine Tour at the Eye of Africa PGA Championship and then on the Challenge Tour at the Hainan Open. After finishing inside the top 15 in the 2017 Challenge Tour Rankings, Erik graduated to the European Tour and excelled during that season, with five top-ten finishes seeing him earn the 2018 Graduate of the Year award. In 2019, Erik continued his great form with his maiden win on the European Tour at the Scandinavian Invite, setting a new tournament record 261 on the par-70 course. Van Rooyen went on to tie for third at last year’s WGC-Mexico Championship in February 2020, advancing to a career best 40th on the Official World Golf Ranking.
Born in South Africa and now residing in Jupiter, Florida, van Rooyen attended the University of Minnesota, where he captained the golf team and met his wife, Rose. His genuine personality on and off the course and utmost professionalism, make him a true global ambassador the golf community can be proud of and an ideal fit as a Slync.io ambassador.
"I'm absolutely delighted to be partnering with Slync,” stated Erik van Rooyen. “Representing such an innovative and forward thinking logistics software company like Slync, makes me proud to be part of such a strong team, in what will be an exciting and long-term partnership."
"After getting to know Erik, it was an obvious fit to have him represent Slync on our team of global ambassadors,” added Chris Kirchner, Chairman and CEO of Slync.io. “We have aligned our brand with individuals who represent our values, identify with our customers, and are true extensions of every Slync stakeholder.
