PHOENIX & HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aggreko plc, the global leader in rental power and heating and cooling, presented its branded golf equipment bag to LPGA golfer Melissa Reid in its official kick-off of its partnership with the popular athlete, Tuesday, March 19 at the Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa just in time for the Bank of Hope Founders Cup March 21.
“Mel is a hard-working, gifted golfer and genuine person, and we are excited to support her,” said Robert Wells, Managing Director of Aggreko Events Services. “Mel’s passion both on and off the course is also what made her stand out to us as the perfect ambassador to represent Aggreko in what we believe will be a huge sporting year for Women’s golf culminating in the Solheim Cup at Gleneagles, Scotland in September which Aggreko will be supporting both as a supplier and sponsor.
“We welcome Mel into the Aggreko family, and look forward to sharing many successes over the next year. Aggreko believes that the values and approach that Mel brings to both life and golf are a great example for all and closely align with our core values. She is from the U.K. and now plays on the U.S. LPGA Tour − mirroring Aggreko’s global headquarters in the U.K. and our North American headquarter in the U.S., two locations from which we manage temporary power, cooling and heating for major sports and premiere events around the world.”
From Derby, England, Reid, 31, is a six-time Ladies European Tour winner who now plays on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) tour in the USA. She has captivated golfing enthusiasts since turning pro in late 2007. Reid currently has a Rolex Women's World Golf Ranking of 286 with two top-10 finishes and has played in three Solheim Cup competitions as a member of Team Europe.
