We’re excited to tell you that talented Toro Rosso Formula 1 team driver Max Verstappen has signed a personal partnership agreement with Exact. The partnership underlines the shared drive, mentality and ambition of the Dutch driver – sights set on a top podium finish – and Exact, focused on becoming a global top three player in small business software in the cloud.
The 18-year old driver is the youngest in the history of Formula 1 to have scored championship points in a race, but his ambitions are aimed even higher. This winning mentality symbolizes the same desire we hold for our software products: to enable our customers and their accountants maximize growth through better insights and more control over their business processes.
A shared desire for success
Commenting on the agreement, our CEO Erik van der Meijden said: “The partnership with Max Verstappen is very exciting for the team at Exact. Max’s mentality matches our approach to our customers. Just as our technology enables businesses and their accountants to grow and succeed, Max is dedicated to winning the highest possible award in Formula 1 and is pushing to achieve this. Success in sport and success in business requires a process of continuous improvement. This is something we will be highlighting in Exact’s global marketing campaigns in which Max will play a leading role.
Relentless focus on improvement
So what does Max Verstappen think? “I am delighted and very proud to be partnering with Exact,” he said. The company already has a history with the world of Formula 1, including supporting my father when he was driving. With its relentless focus on constant improvement, the partnership with Exact is a perfect fit from my career perspective in Formula 1. We both want to reach the top of the global stage. Yes, that can be challenging, but we both know that you cannot force success. You just need to keep following the right path.”
