Tomás Appleton to be Vanguard Properties ambassador until 2025
Vanguard Properties has renewed its contract with top rugby player Tomás Appleton for another year, with the captain of CDUL and the Portuguese national team continuing in his role as the property developer's official ambassador until 2025.
Sharing the company’s values of excellence and ambition, Appleton first became an official Vanguard Properties ambassador in 2023.
Renewing this partnership consolidates Vanguard Properties' commitment to Portuguese sport and investment in young talent, such as professional golfer Pedro "Figgy" Figueiredo and Vanguard Stars, whose youngsters play on the European tennis circuit (under-10s and 11s). Still on the subject of tennis, Vanguard Properties is also one of the main sponsors of the Estoril Open.
As part of this extended partnership, various initiatives are planned throughout the year, promoting both the brand and the sportsman, particularly through Vanguard Properties' and Appleton's social networks.
Sponsoring sport is part of Vanguard Properties' strategic approach, with its projects combining quality of life and sport. A good example of this is 'Terras da Comporta', which will feature a 'Sports City' offering 28 different options.
For Duarte Zoio, Vanguard Properties’ director of corporate communications, "Tomás Appleton is a benchmark in Portuguese sport and we’re very proud to have him support us for another year. Like us, he demonstrates that ambition and excellence are key values for achieving success".
Appleton adds that "being the official ambassador for such an important and well-known property brand such as Vanguard Properties is a huge responsibility, as well as recognition of my work, which makes me very proud."
