RSM US Extends Sponsorship with PGA TOUR Professional Zach Johnson
Four-year extension highlights partnership, sponsorship of The RSM Classic
SEA ISLAND, GA,
RSM US LLP – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, and title sponsor of The RSM Classic – is pleased to announce the four-year extension of its sponsorship of PGA TOUR Professional and Team RSM Member Zach Johnson.
Johnson has been a member of Team RSM since 2006. His current sponsorship runs through 2016, and the extension expands that through the end of 2020. Additional Team RSM Members include PGA TOUR Professionals Chris DiMarco and Davis Love III, host of The RSM Classic.
“The business world and the game of golf have a lot in common,” said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO for RSM US. “Just as a golfer relies on his or her caddy for insights and guidance to help them win, our clients rely on us for insights and guidance to help them succeed in the business world. During last year’s tournament, we announced the extension for four years of our title sponsorship of The RSM Classic through 2020. This year, we’re excited about extending our sponsorship of Zach.”
“Zach has been an exemplary member of Team RSM,” said Andy Bosman, chief marketing officer for RSM US.” The respect Zach demonstrates for others in every interaction, his integrity – on and off the course, dedication to teamwork, constant drive for excellence in everything he does and his strong sense of stewardship – of giving back to the community, align closely with RSM’s own core values. We are proud to have Zach as a member of Team RSM, and look forward to continuing our sponsorship with him for another four years.”
“It has been a pleasure working with RSM clients and employees for the past eight years,” said Johnson. “I knew when we first started having conversations about a sponsorship that this would be more than a business partnership. When you get the opportunity to work with a firm that so clearly shares your own values and priorities, it’s really more like a family-type relationship. And it’s one that I’m glad to be a part of.”
