/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – In an important step for its continued growth, DelMoPRO has entered into an agreement with NOVA Timing Systems to transition NOVA’s long standing major event timing clients to DelMoPRO’s fast growing major event production and timing business. Ed Hartwell, NOVA’s CEO, will remain involved with the DelMoPRO team as a part of these events.
The iconic Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, a long-term NOVA client, will now join a prestigious portfolio of DelMoPRO events who benefit from their world-class timing, scoring and data services, including the latest in MYLAPS BibTag timing technology. Information Overload, a New England based timing technology company, continues to partner with DelMoPRO on this event. Ryan Morris, DelMoPRO’s COO, has worked with NOVA as the lead timer for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom event since 2016, so the transition and service enhancements for the events and its runners will be seamless.
Credit Union Cherry Blossom Event Director Phil Stewart said, “The NOVA Timing team gave us outstanding service for many years, so this is a seamless and happy transition to DelMoPRO which is exactly what a race director wants, especially for our first full scale event after the pandemic.”
“I am very proud of the job NOVA Timing did for the last 6 years as the timing partner for the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run,” said Hartwell. “I am excited to help transition the timing responsibilities to DelMoPRO and also continue to be an important part of the team on race day”
“This is a prestigious addition to our portfolio” said Stephen Del Monte, CEO of DelMoPRO. “We are honored that Cherry Blossom has seen the immediate impact of our success in timing big events and agreed to bring us on for the next 3 years. We look forward to providing Event Director Phil Stewart, his team and the runners the world class service that we are known for.”
