Irvine, CA – January 4 – Nulo, a premium pet food manufacturer, has been named the official pet food partner of USA Water Polo. The agreement runs through 2022 and will provide Nulo the opportunity to reach pet parents through a variety of channels including live events, digital and social content, community engagement initiatives and SkipShot Magazine.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with USA Water Polo as their official pet food partner,” said Michael Landa, Nulo Founder & CEO. “With more than 500 club programs and over 50,000 participants annually, they are the perfect match to help reach pet parents who are passionate about living active, healthy lives with their pets.”
This comprehensive partnership also includes an individual partnership with Adam Krikorian, Head Coach of the U.S. Women’s National Water Polo Team. Krikorian has coached Team USA to two Olympic titles alongside multiple world championships and has proven he understands what it takes to achieve success both in the pool and out of the pool – and that starts with proper nutrition. “As pet parents, we truly coach our pets throughout life – cheering them on, picking them back up and most importantly, making sure they have the proper nutrition to fuel their success in life,” said Landa. “The more we thought about it, the more we saw the parallels between coaching and being a pet parent. Adding an impressive, experienced coach like Adam to our team helps keep our coaching mentality top-of-mind as we continue to grow and create the best possible pet food to fuel all pets.”
“We are elated to have Nulo join our USA Water Polo family as the ‘Official Pet Food Partner’. Proper nutrition is critical to our athlete’s ability to optimize their performance in and out of the pool. Nulo provides pets with nutrition that promotes healthy body condition and stable energy, giving water polo pets the opportunity to complement their pet parent’s active lifestyles,” said Nancy Atufunwa, USA Water Polo Director of Marketing.
USA Water Polo and Krikorian join Nulo’s already impressive partner roster alongside world-class athletes and fellow gold medalists such as Michael Phelps and Dana Vollmer as Nulo continually inspires people to be Healthier Together™ with their pets.
