Olympic Gold Medalist and Inductee of Columbus Hall of Fame, Jerry Page, Attends and Highlights How Performance & Commitment Ideals Drive Workplace and Community Values
HILLIARD, Ohio – June 27, 2011 –
BMW Financial Services took advantage of the overall BMW Group's national
"BMW Drive for Team USA"
campaign to spark the enthusiasm of its more than 700 associates, while showcasing its own pledge to performance and commitment within the workplace, throughout the community and toward the support of Olympic athletes. Throughout the day, BMW FS Associates were able to test drive an array of award-winning BMW cars, while additionally sharing in passions for excellence with Olympic Gold Medalist and Columbus resident Jerry Page, who was on hand to emphasize what it takes to compete at a world-class level.
Jerry Page was the light-welterweight on the 1984 U.S. Olympic Team, where he remained undefeated and won the Gold medal for the United States. His amateur career was equally impressive (101-30), in which he was a six-time Golden Glove champion, three-time parade All American, the number two ranked light-welterweight in the World for two years, National Sports Festival champion, and the 1983 Pan-Am Games Silver medalist. Additionally, as an amateur, Jerry won the prestigious State of Ohio Governor's Award and was inducted into the Columbus City Hall of Fame.
According to Wayne E. Orchowski, Vice President of Operations North America and Chief Operating Officer for BMW Group Financial Services, BMW Group is a partner for the United States Olympic Committee, and will act as the Official Mobility Sponsor for Olympics through 2016. “We are committed to the pursuit of excellence in all we do,” said Orchowski. “Outwardly, we provide ongoing support for the tremendous opportunities provided to Olympic athletes, and internally, we strive to employ individuals with the passion to achieve success through their own personal commitments to quality and performance.”
