Carparison are delighted to announce that Exeter Chiefs director of rugby Rob Baxter OBE has joined the company as a brand ambassador.

Baxter joins up with the Exeter-based leasing broker and will work closely with them throughout the 2021/22 season.

As part of the agreement with Baxter, the Chiefs Director of Rugby this week took delivery of his sponsored Mercedes-Benz GLC 300d AMG Line Premium at Sandy Park. 

He said: “I am delighted that the team at Carparison have made me one of their brand ambassadors. It's great for me that I can work closely with such a strong local brand in helping to promote not only the Chiefs, but also their business as a whole. 

“Bringing success to the city, whether it’s in sporting terms or on the business front, is incredibly important at times like this.”​

It has been a whirlwind 18 months for Baxter, who guided his side to a historic double last season, before being named among the Queen’s New Years’ Honours List, where he was awarded an OBE. More recently, he was crowned the Rugby Writers’ Personality of the Year for 2020, picking up the much-coveted Pat Marshall Award.

Carparison’s General Manager Matt Woodward said: “We’re delighted to be working with Rob Baxter and the Exeter Chiefs. Joining forces with such a strong local brand is important to us here at Carparison and we hope this is the start of a long-standing relationship.

“It’s a huge opportunity for us to have a strong working relationship with the Chiefs and will assist in the national growth aspirations of our brand. The leasing market continues to thrive during the pandemic relative to other business sectors for both the growing personal contract hire market and the well-established business contract hire sectors.”

Chiefs fans can expect to see more from Baxter at Carparison, with a range of exclusive content and interviews lined up over the next 12 months.

The partnership with Chiefs is another milestone moment for Carparison, as the company goes from strength to strength in these challenging times. In the last six months alone, the company has welcomed no more than seven new members of staff, with no plans to slow down. Plus, the launch of their newest enterprise,, is just a few weeks away.
