Suzuki Queensland once again is reaching new heights with its Way of Life branding message ... this time with Eastern Suburbs Tigers' five-eighth and halfback, Cody Walker.
The state distributor of Suzuki motor vehicles has welcomed Cody on to its staff as a stock controller.
So now Cody not only has to decide which way the ball will be passed on weekends, he now also is responsible for deciding which automotive parts are headed were around Suzuki's spare parts facility at Eagle Farm.
is a sponsor of the Tigers and club Chief Executive, Des Morris, who is also a Queensland rugby league selector, saw great value in a suggestion from Suzuki General Manager, Adam Le Fevre, that the relationship could be taken to a higher level.
"We sometimes are looking for fit, reliable and smart employees with a good work ethic to undertake roles in the warehouse," Mr Le Fevre said.
"I was with Des watching the Tigers play one day and I thought that not too many of them would probably complain about a paper cut from a cardboard box.
"It also was a chance to see players develop themselves in roles other than football.
"Des was right on to it and figured it would be an ideal opportunity for Cody as an up and coming young player.
"Des made it quite clear that he wanted to know if there was anything less than a 100 percent commitment in the workplace because he would attend to it personally - that's a slightly different employment approach to what we have experienced previously.
"But there's been no need, it's an ideal match," Mr Le Fevre said.
Cody said: "I'm really enjoying it here looking after the parts, stocking and orders."
"The Tigers are the best club I've been at, there's a level of professionalism that I haven't seen before and it's the same at Suzuki.
It's great to have the support from both of them."
Cody began his career playing with the Casino Cougars before moving to Tweed Heads and later having a run in the Under 20's Toyota Cup with the Titans in 2009 and 2010.
The Tigers are a feeder club to the Melbourne Storm which has Suzuki Australia as a major sponsor.
