Teaming with Mainstream

Myron Simpson on the trackTo reach the pinnacle in his sport Myron set about building a capable and supportive team around him - providing coaching, mentoring and financial assistance. 

Mainstream joined that team in 2009.

Mainstream Owner and Managing Director, Greg Haliday, explained the decision to support Myron: "We found Myron professional and mature beyond his years. He was dedicated to cycling and came from a local and capable family. We felt he had further to go in his career and was worthy of support."

Mainstream's support for Myron is made up of a combination of financial support and making sure he has the tools available to keep himself up with the technological advances in his sport.

With a lot of travel and international competition for committed cyclists, the team at Mainstream keep a close eye on Myron's progress and achievements.

"We believe Myron is a winner and a wonderful ambassador for New Zealand and his sport," concluded Greg Haliday.

Following a personal need by Mainstream Owners, Greg and Diane Haliday, to call-out the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, Mainstream has been a consistent contributor to the trust for over 10 years.

"We believe the Westpac Rescue Helicopter team does a great job helping people in in need in our community," said Diane Haliday. "We have our people and trucks on the road every day, and personally we like to get out on the water ourselves. Having the knowledge that help is close at hand in the event of emergency means we're happy to support the Westpac Rescue Helicopter."
