CEO of Innovative Solutions Group™, Arnoux Maré, says his company and its subsidiaries form a prominent part of the business community around the country and with firm roots in Mpumalanga.

“South African sport is close to our hearts and we see the sponsorship of the country’s youngest team as the perfect opportunity to show our support to one of the country’s most beloved sports.”

“We are excited that our name will feature on the Pumas sports gear and at major games across the country. The Pumas are a talented team of players, who feature significantly in the Premier Division of the Currie Cup and the Super Sport Challenge. Their recent success in 2018 is evidence of their tactical brilliance on the field,”

adds Maré.

The Chairman of the Mpumalanga Rugby (Pty) Ltd, Mr Apie Human, said

“It is a privilege today to welcome Innovative Solutions Group™, its Founder, Arnoux Mare and his team to our beautiful home and to confirm the title sponsor partnership of the ISG Pumas. In the search for a main partner, it was important for the Pumas to find a partner that shares our goal to create an environment that will ensure we reach our full potential as a competitive international rugby Franchise. In Innovative Solutions Group™ and under the leadership of Arnoux, we have found that partner. We relate to their set of values and will ensure that our levels of dedication and energy will also support the way they serve their business.

We cannot wait for the start of this new chapter in the history of the Pumas and will ensure that our relationship / partnership as the ISG Pumas will be mutually beneficial.”
