It gives us great pleasure to announce that Keith Atkinson, the 11-time British Formula windsurfing champion & former BBC Sports Personality of the Year, has signed with KENNETT to become the latest Sports Ambassador for the watch brand. The 28 year-old joins golfer Chris Hanson and a number of racing drivers in what is now a substantial group of talented UK-based sportsmen who will be representing the KENNETT brand.
Tom Kennett, founder of the Kennett brand, said of the deal: “To have a presence in golf, motorsport and now windsurfing is a great reflection of how the brand has grown and gives a great representation of the diversity and quality of our products. Keith’s record in the sport is outstanding; to be a British champion in your field just once is impressive, but to have eleven titles to your name is almost unheard of. We now have a great stock of champion sportsmen in our ranks and I look forward to Keith, and all of our ambassadors, adding many more titles to their names with KENNETT alongside them,” said Tom.
Atkinson was pleased to be working with the brand: “I have long admired the KENNETT brand as I feel we share a passion for outdoor, high-intensity sports which is what I live and breathe for. I have a number of exciting competitions in the calendar this year and cannot wait to expose the brand to the rapidly expanding sports of Formula windsurfing. I look forward to sharing many years of success with KENNETT,” Atkinson said.
