DRP Logistics' Rob Plaister pledges support for new season

Genting Casino Coventry Blaze are delighted to welcome back dedicated sponsor DRP Logistics, namely Rob Plaister who has also committed to a continued role as the club’s Media Manager.

Rob’s company, DRP Logistics came on board as sponsor three seasons ago and has been of huge support to the club ever since. With their logo proudly laying on the ice, side boards and on front of the company’s corporate SkySuite, DRP Logistics have also supported us in bringing in additional players, becoming sponsor of the Chuck-a-Puck and also helping the club to pick up equipment and courier players' luggage for example.

Whether you require express delivery services, freight shipping, worldwide import/export services or even warehouse storage, DRP Logistics will always come up with a cost-effective solution. Excelling in customer relations, with an extensive base of contacts, you can see all of the services that DRP Logistics can provide here:

In addition to sponsorship, in November of last year, appreciating the time and resource challenges in the core running of the club and wanting to help, Rob took upon responsibility for the club’ media output with a big aim, “to make the club’s media, the best in the Elite League.”

He continued, “I want the Coventry Blaze to set the standard, to be innovative, and thorough. A champion in its own right. We should look to set the standards and set the bar as high as we can.

“A bold ambition perhaps, but why shouldn't we be bold? I will push myself and will push everyone else involved in the club’s media to be the best we can possibly be. It won't happen overnight, but steady improvements will come if I do my job correctly. The management have put their trust in me and made me accountable and responsible, which is how I like it.”

Nearly ten months later, and we feel it fair to say that Rob with the support of his dedicated team has achieved his ambition and helped push the club forward significantly in this area.

Chairman of the Blaze Andy Buxton commented:

"Rob has been great to work with, not just as a sponsor, but as the leader of our fabulous media team.  His enthusiasm is infectious and his support has been invaluable.

"It's a mammoth job running a professional sports team like ours and at times when things can get on top of you a little, you can count on Rob to provide support and encouragement at the right time and in the right way.  He has done a wonderful job taking our media output to the next level and I've lost count of the number of times I've gone 'Wow' at something his team have produced and put out there.

"I know he loves being involved and being able to help and we really do thank him for his continued support, both as a sponsor and as our media manager."
