Pádraig Harrington today signed a long-term contract which will see him become an official ambassador for Clune Construction, a multi-million dollar, Chicago-based company.
The company entered an interim branding arrangement with the Dubliner last year and helped raise funds for the Pádraig Harrington Charitable Foundation.
“I have a full schedule this year, with tournaments throughout the US, Europe and around the world, and look forward to representing the Clune name both on and off the golf course,” said Harrington. “I’m impressed with their business and delighted to partner with them.”
Michael Clune, founder of the business added: “We are excited about this partnership and glad to be a part of the Harrington team, which includes his active charitable foundation. Padraig’s brand values match up well with ours, and we think he will be a respected and valuable ambassador for us as he competes around the world. Our organization also is thrilled that Padraig has agreed to join with our company for several golf-related special events this year.”
Clune Construction is well known for its involvement with charity work and giving back to the communities it serves.
“Our company is committed to helping community organizations and finding unique ways to meld business and community ventures. It is our hope that that partnerships such as this, beyond the business sponsorship element, can provide another avenue to assist in doing that,” Mr Clune added.
