BIG MONEY: Apparently, PUMA has learnt a thing or two from its biggest celebrity client, Usain Bolt, about setting records. The Germany-based sportswear company, whose megastar clients include the Jamaican sprinting legend and Bajan pop superstar Rihanna, recently disclosed that their first-quarter net profits have reached $49.6 million euros, almost double last year’s figure, a new quarterly record for sales. As a result, PUMA has upped its forecasts for raking in profits for the rest of the year. Meanwhile, the company has added a couple more internationally known names to its roster. Per recent reports, French football team Olympique de Marseille and Germany’s Borussia Moenchengladbach will step out in PUMA gear for the 2018/19 season.
WHO’S BOSS? It’s easily one of the most prestigious titles to have among your credentials: Boss of the Year. By all accounts, Dr. Garfield Young fits the bill. The Associate Professor – Dean of the faculty of the Built Environment at the University of Technology (UTech) – was recently bestowed with the coveted honour for 2017 by the National Association of Administrative Professionals. A supersized trophy accompanies Dr. Young’s year-long reign.
