ST. LOUIS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it has expanded and enhanced its multi-year partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals through the addition of the Perficient Red Jacket Club at Busch Stadium.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to expand our partnership with Perficient, a successful, dynamic and quickly growing St. Louis-based firm, to make that a reality.”
“We’re pleased to enhance our relationship with one of the most storied franchises in baseball,” said Bill Davis, Perficient’s vice president of marketing and communications. “From the prominent and widely recognized Perficient Perch to the new Perficient Red Jacket Club, we’re thrilled to partner with an organization that truly shares our appreciation of, affinity for, and commitment to the St. Louis region.”
The Perficient Red Jacket Club is Busch Stadium’s newest all-inclusive area, similar to the UMB Champion’s Club but with a smaller, more intimate setting. Commemorating iconic Cardinals Hall of Famers such as Stan Musial, Lou Brock, Ozzie Smith, and others, the Club provides excellent game sightlines and direct visibility to the Perficient Perch along the third base line of Busch Stadium.
“Each year, the Cardinals organization invests significant time, energy and financial resources to continue to improve our in-stadium customer experience, and the Perficient Red Jacket Club, like the Perficient Perch has, will grow to represent a new, exciting area of our stadium,” said Dan Farrell, Cardinals senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We couldn’t be more pleased to expand our partnership with Perficient, a successful, dynamic and quickly growing St. Louis-based firm, to make that a reality.”
In addition to sponsorship rights, Perficient will receive radio exposure on the Cardinals’ flagship radio station, KMOX, as well as across the entire Cardinals Radio Network, which spans more than 140 stations across nine states. Corporate hospitality, television, and in-game exposure are included.
In recent years, both organizations have been among the most successful in their respective industries. Since 2000, the Cardinals have reached the postseason in 12 of 15 seasons and appeared in the World Series four times, winning twice. Perficient has scaled from a startup to a global consulting leader with more than 2,800 employees and with nearly $500 million in revenue.
