Padraig Harrington has entered into a multi-year global partnership with FTI Consulting, the world’s leader in event driven consulting.
FTI will become a leading sponsor of the Irish golfer who will don the company’s branding on his cap for the next number of years.
The three-time Major winner qualified as a certified accountant before becoming a professional golfer, and FTI view him as a perfect model to take their brand forward.
“Our new partnership with Padraig Harrington represents the next stage in the evolution of the FTI brand and our Company’s presence all over the world,” said Declan Kelly, FTI’s Executive Vice President and Chief Integration Officer.
Harrington has enjoyed a memorable season in which he successfully defended his Open title at Birkdale before claiming a first USPGA crown.
Recently, Harrington captured the European Tour Player of the Year award – achievements FTI have recognized and expect the Irishman to build on next season.
Kelly added: “In 2009 we intend to maintain our strong growth strategy and that means expanding our presence and our brand awareness to as many corners of the world as possible, especially in the markets where we now have a physical operational presence.”
