UST Global, a leading digital technology services company that provides powerful solutions for Global 1000 companies, recently organized a ‘Meet and Greet’ event with the players of the IPL (Indian Premiere League) team Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The event witnessed participation of UST Global employees, customers and partner NGOs. UST Global had signed up a three-year deal as the princIPLe sponsor of CSK last year.



CSK players Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, Michael Hussey, Brendon McCullum, and Faf du Plessis, along with captain MS Dhoni and bowling coach Andy Bichel were present at the event.

UST Global had signed up a three-year deal as the principal sponsor of CSK last year.

Addressing the audience, MS Dhoni talked about his association with UST Global, and why he thought it was a special one. He said, “The entire CSK team, including me, are proud and delighted to be associated with UST Global. I have been part of many such events but this one is always unique as UST Global focuses on giving back to society.”

He also shared his perspective on what he felt about the power of technology. Responding to a point made by Sajan Pillai, Chief Executive Officer of UST Global, who spoke to the audience about how the company is taking healthcare to the next level through technology, like making painful insulin injections a thing of the past, the CSK captain said, “Technology is the future. I have been fortunate that I have not taken an injection for years now, but if in time I need to take one, I am sure that technology would have been developed to the point of making it painless.”

MS Dhoni also urged the youth to take up sports. He said, “While it’s fun to be tech-savvy and enjoy sports on the Xbox and play stations of the world, it’s important for the youth to get out, soak some sun and play a sport, the hard way.”

Sajan Pillai, Chief Executive Officer of UST Global, said “Through this initiative, we take the opportunity to express our gratitude to our employees and customers  for their continuous support in making UST Global one of the finest IT services companies in the world. Business and sports like cricket have much in common, with success of both hinging tightly on team effort, agility and strategy. I am hopeful that our employees and customers have taken great memories and valuable lessons in team work and perseverance while interacting with the world’s best cricketers during the meet.”

“UST Global is proud to be associated with one of the most commendable and successful cricket teams of the IPL – the Chennai Super Kings.  I would like to wish the entire CSK team all the very best for this IPL season”, he added.


Nikki Arora, Chief Marketing Officer, UST Global, said, “We are proud to be associated with one of the most commendable and successful cricket teams of IPL. We believe that business and sports, like cricket, have much in common, with the success of both hinging on team effort, agility, and strategy. This initiative has given us and our partners great memories and valuable lessons in team work”.
 
Led by its mission of ‘transforming lives’ around the communities it works and operates, UST Global also invited young children from orphanage home Shishu Mandir for a dance performance at the event.
