Spotlight on Sponsor – True North

We are thrilled to announce a new corporate sponsor for Hillary Outdoors

true-northTrue North New Zealand are now managing our Brand Logistics, having supported the implementation of our new branding, including the supply of printed materials, branded clothing and signage.

True North is a procurement management and software company at the forefront of corporate procurement solutions. They navigate better ways to source operational supplies and marketing materials.

John Snaith, Chief Executive at True North, first visited New Zealand from England in 1986 on his OE before University. He remembers the impact of his experiences during his gap year. “The warmth of the people I met was remarkably, but it was their introduction to new experiences that made it a life-changing time for me, opening my eyes to what was possible (and resulting in my emigration). The work performed by Hillary Outdoors provides young people with similar experiences to those that I benefited from, so it is great to support in any way we can”.

True North’s results are proven with many major Retail, FMCG and Financial Services organisations in New Zealand and Australia. Their systems, services and supplier network were readily extended to Hillary Outdoors. Working with our Creative partners and Designers of the new branded materials, True North apply their mantra Save, Simplify, Innovate to reduce costs, facilitate the processes and introduce the latest, most effective choices.

With the new look of Hillary Outdoors now in place, True North plan to support us with their Procure-to-Pay Portal linking our people to our suppliers and our accounting systems. This will make it easy for our team to source the supplies they need from our approved suppliers and sponsors, in a way that minimizes administration – meaning we all have more time doing better things outdoors.

John further comments “True North is now in its sixth year, and we’re delighted to have reached a position we can contribute to Hillary Outdoors”.
