Our collaboration with Kane Williamson: Nicholson Auto ambassador
Kane Williamson is widely recognised as one of the best batsmen in the world, not to mention a solid captain who has led the Black Caps through one of their most successful runs in the modern era.
As we’ve got to know him better, the team at Nicholson Auto have discovered that, more importantly, Kane is also incredibly generous and down to earth. That’s why we feel so lucky to have him as Nicholson Auto’s New Zealand wide ambassador.
Kane Williamson: Nicholson Auto ambassador
When Kane isn’t overseas hitting sixes, we provide him with a brand new Nissan Pathfinder to help him get from A to B. To help us out, he drops in when we open a new Nicholson branch or host a charity event as well as occasionally sending us signed cricket bats to help support good causes in our community. He’s exactly the kind of guy we want out there representing our brand, because despite becoming one of the world’s most famous cricketers, he’s still the same humble Kiwi he was before the fame.
This relationship started in 2013 when Dean Nicholson floated the idea to Mike Williamson, Kane’s agent and good friend of Dean. Kane was keen and we haven’t looked back since.
We caught up with Kane recently and were stoked to find out he’s not sick of us yet:
“Nicholson are outstanding to work with. I’m very fortunate to be driving one of their vehicles and, from my point of view, with my commitments, they’re brilliant to deal with. It’s really great to be provided with a truck to drive when I’m at home.”
Nicholson Auto values
Nicholson Auto places make it our priority to contribute to our local community, which is why Kane Williamson is the ideal ambassador. He grew up in the region and places the same importance on giving back:
“It’s great that Nicholson are a local company in an area that I’ve grown up in and you get a real sense that they put a lot into the service side of what they do. I think you can really see that in the charity and community work that they’re involved in,” Kane said.
Collaborating with Kane is always a pleasure and, despite his busy schedule as one of the most prominent cricketers in the game, he’s always got time to drop in at community events and charity fundraisers.
From the entire team at Nicholson Auto – thanks Kane – we hope we can keep you moving for many years to come!
