Epic Risk Management extends deal with Nathan Quarless
The firm has sponsored the professional cruiserweight for the last two years and will continue its deal to promote a safer gambling message.
UK.- Epic Risk Management has extended its sponsorship agreement with the boxer Nathan Quarless. The consultancy has sponsored the undefeated professional cruiserweight for the last two years and will continue to support his career while promoting a safer gambling message among young athletes.
Paul Buck, founder and CEO of Epic Risk Management said: “Nathan is a fantastic role model of recovery – a great advocate for positive recovery. After suffering his own issues with gambling, he has used his talent in boxing amongst other things such as his new venture in supporting others in his recovery.
“He was also a very positive advocate when we recently launched our new Epic Pro Sport Advisory Board, bringing together key players from the pro sport, esports, and gambling ecosystem to try and minimize the ongoing risk of harm that people like Nathan have experienced in the past.”
Quarless commented on how he met Buck: “About two years ago now, I was working with Beacon on the launch of the Gambling Harms North West Alliance. Paul was doing a speech, and I did one on my struggles and read a poem as well.
“We didn’t end up networking on the day, but afterward, Paul got in touch with me through Twitter to tell me how much I’d inspired him and how he’d like to meet up. He ended up sponsoring me in the boxing and we have become good friends from that day on.”
