‘The World’s Greatest Living Explorer’: Sir Ranulph Fiennes announced as TMF Group’s global ‘brand ambassador’ for 2016

Sir Ranulph Fiennes, described by The Guinness Book of Records as “the world’s greatest living explorer” has been confirmed as TMF Group’s global brand ambassador for 2016.

With offices in over 80 countries, TMF Group is one of the world’s leading providers of global business services and has been helping organisations to enter new markets and explore business territories for over 25 years.

“It is with immense pride that we announce Sir Ranulph Fiennes as our brand ambassador for 2016,” explains Richard Fitzmaurice, Chief Marketing Officer.

“For fifty years, Sir Ranulph has inspired generations with his ability to conquer new territories, face his fears and build high performing teams whilst undertaking some of the hardest challenges on earth.”

Starting in 1967 with the Jostedalsbreen Glacier Expedition, Sir Ranulph has since undertaken physical challenges across all the world’s terrains and continents. His many achievements include completing a Transglobe Expedition (1979-82), a solo Arctic Expedition (2000), and the gruelling Marathon des Sables (2015) at the age of 71.

“TMF is on an ambitious journey of its own and I am extremely proud to be part of it,” says Sir Ranulph.

“Conquering new territories requires not only ambition, but also local knowledge and expertise. TMF Group provides businesses with all those components and I’m delighted to be its brand ambassador for 2016.”
