LONDON — Consumers brands group THG has appointed specialist sports marketing agency Right Formula to activate its first sports sponsorship, of the Williams Racing F1 team, after a competitive pitch.
THG’s portfolio includes sports nutrition brand Myprotein, luxury skincare brands Espa and Perricone MD, Europe’s biggest online beauty retailer Lookfantastic and beauty subscription service Glossybox.
The sponsorship agreement, launched ahead of the 2023 Austin Grand Prix with Williams Racing drivers Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant (pictured) sees THG becoming Williams Racing’s official partner across nutrition, technology and ecommerce and sustainability.
Right Formula’s brief for the multi-year programme includes strategy, communications, digital, hospitality and events.

The team have already acted as invaluable partners as we’ve worked together to launch this exciting partnership.”
