WEST FARGO — Bobcat Company has secured a three-year partnership deal with Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.
Mike Ballweber, president of Doosan Bobcat North America in West Fargo, said in a statement Monday that Wentz embodies Bobcat's high standards of performance.
"We are excited to have such an accomplished and principled athlete, who shares a deep connection to North Dakota, representing our brand," Ballweber said. "Carson demonstrates perseverance, grit and a tireless work ethic both on and off the field, which truly embodies Bobcat's standards of performance and toughness."
Wentz will be featured prominently within marketing efforts for Bobcat, including advertising, dealership signage and the company's digital and social media platforms. He will make appearances on behalf of the company as well.
"I wanted to partner with Bobcat knowing their values and being a North Dakota-based company," Wentz said. "They are the most trusted brand in the industry, and they understand who I am as a person and the values I have. Partnering with Bobcat was definitely a no-brainer for me."
