PRINCETON, N.J. – USRowing is pleased to announce that ANXeBusiness Corp., (“ANX”), a provider of managed security, compliance and connectivity solutions, has renewed its partnership with USRowing and has joined the Row to Rio 2016 campaign as a Gold Medal Sponsor. Their four year commitment of USRowing and the U.S. National Team provides important funding to the team as it trains for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

“ANX is a dream partner for USRowing. Their pride in our team over the past two years has been inspiring and our athletes have prospered from the relationship,” said Beth Kohl, Chief Marketing Officer of USRowing. “By engaging with us for the next four years, we are able to put our team in the best possible position for success in Rio. As a company, ANX truly espouses Olympic values and their commitment to excellence in all aspects of their business is evident. We are so pleased to welcome them back and look forward to expanding our relationship.”

“The United States Olympic rowers have been a source of inspiration for ANX employees and we are proud to partner with the team and support them on their Row to Rio,” said Cindy Swiantek, Vice President of ANX. “We look forward to sharing our special relationship with USRowing to benefit the Michigan Council of Women in Technology.”

USRowing Olympians and ANX have worked together over the past 18 months to support the Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation (MCWT), which is committed to helping correct the growing gender disparity gap in information technology.

This past February, ANX hosted an Olympian Day in Detroit. London Olympic medalists Esther Lofgren and Natalie Dell shared their inspirational stories with some of Detroit’s key business leaders, who had made generous donations to the MCWT.

The talks showcased synergies between success in business and success in rowing. Lofgren and Dell also spoke to young women from the MCWT Foundation’s high school GET-IT Clubs (Girls Exploring Together – Information Technology), and as a result, some of the girls from the GET-IT clubs are planning to start rowing this fall.
