GLENEAGLES, SCOTLAND, 27 AUGUST 2012 - On the day the European Team for The 2012 Ryder Cup is confirmed, Ernst & Young becomes an Official Partner to The 2012 Ryder Cup Team and The 2014 Ryder Cup.
Jay Nibbe, Ernst & Young’s Markets Leader, Europe, Middle East, India and Africa, says: “We are delighted to be an Official Partner of such a prestigious sporting occasion. The challenge of creating, building and managing teams has as much resonance in the business world as it does The Ryder Cup. Ernst & Young understands that in sport, as in business, you succeed by getting talent to work together.”
Jim Bishop, Ernst & Young’s senior partner, Scotland, photographed with European Team Captain José María Olazábal at The Gleneagles Hotel, host venue for The 2014 Ryder Cup, comments: ‘It’s an honor to officially announce our Ryder Cup partnership in the Home of Golf and the location where one of the world’s greatest sporting events will take place in September 2014. The European Ryder Cup Captain faces the added challenge of combining players from different countries with distinct cultures and playing styles into a coherent team unit. It is a high profile test of leadership and team-building. We are confident that José María’s open and inclusive style will lead the European Team to success in Medinah this year.”
Richard Hills, European Ryder Cup Director, said: “On behalf of Ryder Cup Europe it is my great pleasure to welcome Ernst & Young to our formidable list of Official Partners to both The 2012 European Ryder Cup Team, and The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. Ernst & Young is, like The Ryder Cup, a thriving global brand and we look forward to developing our new partnership over the course of the next two years.”
