“Both Atlantis Healthcare and PureBlack Racing are organisations who have a big vision for what we want to achieve on the international stage while retaining strong connections to our roots here in New Zealand which are a big part of what makes us unique,” said Cross.
“When Greg explained what they were focussed on achieving with PureBlack Racing I knew this was something that could make a very real difference for Atlantis,” said Michael Whittaker CEO and Founder of Atlantis Healthcare.
“As an organisation we are growing rapidly with new customers, offices and staff coming on board around the globe at an ever-increasing rate. With more and more of our team-based internationally, having a partnership with a high performance sports team from New Zealand will really help us continue to develop the sort of high performance team-based culture we will need to be even more successful.”
