Locally based national firm has supported concert season since 2015


CARMEL, IN – Through a new multiyear partnership agreement, Carmel-based Allied Solutions will continue to serve as the lead sponsor of the annual Center Presents performance season at the Center for the Performing Arts.


Each Center Presents season includes more than 40 events in the fields of pop, rock, country, classical, jazz, world music, comedy and family entertainment. Allied Solutions, one of the nation’s largest providers of insurance, lending, and marketing products to financial institutions, has been the Season Sponsor since 2015.


“For the fifth consecutive year, Allied Solutions is proud to sponsor the Center Presents Season and one of the premier arts organizations in Central Indiana,” said Pete Hilger, CEO and President of Allied Solutions. “We’re committed to investing in our local communities and organizations like the Center who play a key role in maintaining the quality of life in the community.”


The partnership has raised the visibility of the Center and its programming while aiding Allied Solutions in talent recruitment and retention. Support from corporate partners enables the Center to provide arts education and experiences for all ages while attracting world-class performers and maintaining affordable entry-level ticket prices.


“We partner with organizations that share our commitment to the Central Indiana community and help us pursue our mission of engaging and inspiring people of all ages through enriching arts experiences,” said Jeffrey C. McDermott, President/CEO of the Center for the Performing Arts. “We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support of Allied Solutions and looking forward to the future together.”


The 2019-20 Center Presents Season sponsored by Allied Solutions begins with the July 20 Songbook Academy Finals concert and hits high gear in September and beyond with performances from Steve Martin and Martin Short, Trisha Yearwood, Sir James and Lady Galway, Jason Mraz, the Brubeck Brothers and other top artists. The upcoming season also includes special events such as a Dec. 5 film screening and Q&A with the stars of the quirky comedy Napoleon Dynamite and a free March 12 performance by the U.S. Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus.


“The support of Allied Solutions helps secure the financial position of the Center,” said Braden Hurley, Director of Corporate Development. “We believe a partnership renewal reflects favorably on the Center’s service to the arts and shows the return on the investment made by Allied Solutions, which brings the partnership to life.”


In addition to branding, partnership benefits for Allied Solutions include tickets to Center Presents performances that can be used for employee incentives, team building and client engagement. The company also receives advertising in the program book, hospitality access and an event rental at the Palladium.
