Roberto Boi , who is the Sales and Marketing manager at Macon Store Bibra lake, Futsal head of Marketing at Pro Futsal and coach of the women's championship winning side at South Perth, said about the partnership,
" As an international sports brand we support and always will support a gender equal sporting future not only in elite sport but also at grassroots level.
We are honoured to support an initiative as inclusive as Women in Sport WA and admire the incredible work that has been done in the past year to promote Womens Sport in Western Australia.
Together with Women in Sport WA, we look forward to supporting women in sport at all levels, locally and internationally through special events, programs and visiblity."
Karen Hennessy, Founder of Women In Sport WA was introduced to Macron by their first female sponsored athlete and Perth Glory and Pro Futsal Player Gemma Craine.
Gemma had said something that resonated with Karen about the brand and the people behind it.
"For me it wasn’t just about my achievements, it’s what I stood for and how they were going to help me use my voice and also be a voice for females and kids all over. Macron have supported me in and out of competition, It's all about the detail, the highs and lows. I am very proud to represent the brand "
When Karen went to visit Macron onsite at the Bibra Lake store she was amazed at the fact that Roberto could turn around a T- Shirt in 13 seconds.
"That sealed the deal for me, quick access and customer service on top of their core values"
This is what led to the relationship with Macron and Women In Sport WA something that both parties are very happy to support and build.
