Alexander Zhukov: “We are very glad that we now have a new reliable partner”
April 27, 2016, 100 days before the start of the Rio Olympic Games a Partnership Agreement between the Russian Olympic Committee and the FUTURE Private Pension Fund was signed. The solemn signing ceremony, held at the ROC Innovation Centre, was attended by the ROC President Alexander Zhukov, Chairman of the O1 Group Board of Directors Boris Mints, Director General of the ROC Vladimir Sengleev and the FUTURE Private Pension Fund CEO Nikolay Sidorov.
“Today is a big day, – said Alexander Zhukov. – We not only announce the signing of the Agreement with the new general partner of the Russian Olympic Committee, but also celebrate the accession of O1 Group and the FUTURE Private Pension Fund to the Olympic family. Since the year 2007 the Sochi Organizing Committee owns all rights to the Olympic symbols. Now these rights are returning to us. Therefore the Russian Olympic Committee has worked out a new marketing program making the O1 Group company and the FUTURE Private Pension Fund our general partners. The O1 Group company has already realized a few sporting projects. Funds, received from signing of this Agreement, will be used to develop the Olympic Movement and to prepare our athletes for the Olympic Games Rio and Pyeongchang. We are very glad that we now have a new reliable partner. And we hope for our further mutually beneficial cooperation”.
