The Pittsburgh Penguins have named Aspirant, global management and technology consultancy, as Official Consultant. This partnership will facilitate collaboration between the companies, as well as create additional avenues for supporting the firm’s Connection of Hope initiative.

“Along with the rest of the Pittsburgh business community, we admire the Penguins not just for what they have achieved, but how they have achieved it,” Rupert says. “By partnering with one of the most successful and well-respected sports franchises, Aspirant will have the chance to apply our integrated expertise to an entirely different setting. We’re very excited about the opportunity this relationship will create for both organizations.”
