McGladrey Congratulates Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III for Being Named 2012 Ryder Cup Captain
STATEMENT FROM RSM McGLADREY CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER MARK AUDINO:
“We are thrilled Davis has been selected as the 2012 Ryder Cup captain and know he will do an exemplary job leading Team USA. Like all members of Team McGladrey, Davis represents the values of integrity, excellence, understanding and teamwork – values that mirror our firm’s own business values. McGladrey is proud and honored to be associated with Davis Love III, and we wish him the best on this next chapter of his career.
We look forward to watching the 2012 Ryder Cup, and to teaming up with Davis and the rest of Team McGladrey at the second McGladrey Classic (Oct. 13-16) this fall to continue our support of Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia and Special Olympics.”
RSM McGladrey, Inc. and McGladrey & Pullen LLP, leading providers of assurance, tax and consulting services under the McGladrey brand, signed Davis Love III to an endorsement deal in July 2010, becoming the fourth member of “Team McGladrey.” The other three include PGA TOUR Professionals Chris DiMarco and Zach Johnson and LPGA TOUR Professional Natalie Gulbis.
Love’s relationship with McGladrey deepened as a result of his involvement in The McGladrey Classic, a new PGA Fall Series event held in Love’s home town of Sea Island, Georgia. The Davis Love Foundation is the host of the prestigious golf tournament, which in its inaugural year donated $150,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia and Special Olympics.
Love has played on six Ryder Cup teams, and won the pivotal point at The Belfry in 1993. He also played on Team USA during the great American comeback in 1999 at Brookline, and was vice captain last year when Europe won back the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor. His selection as Team USA captain for 2012 follows the announcement earlier this week that Jose Maria Olazabal will lead Team Europe.
