As a global leader in wholesale insurance, our partnership with PGA golfers Jimmy Walker and our newest member, Webb Simpson, is an ideal fit. Both players have excelled individually on the golf course for years. And now, they are taking their games to the next level by joining a championship team: Team Burns & Wilcox.
"Both of these golfers exhibit great drive, integrity, hard work and professionalism, qualities that we share," says Alan Jay Kaufman, Chairman, President and CEO of H.W.

Six-time PGA Tour victor Jimmy Walker is coming off a banner year that culminated in his first major win at the PGA Championship and participation on the U.S.’s victorious Ryder Cup team. “We made a strategic move when we announced our official sponsorship of PGA golfer Jimmy Walker”, said Alan Jay Kaufman, Chairman, President and CEO of H.W. Kaufman Financial Group, parent to Burns & Wilcox. “We knew we selected a winner in Jimmy – But he proved himself to be a champion.” The World Top 20 Golfer is entering into his second year with Burns & Wilcox as his official sponsor.
Webb Simpson won his first major at the U.S. Open at just 26 years of age. Now 31, Simpson has accumulated four PGA Tour wins and has gained a reputation for being one of the tour’s most consistently competitive players. “Webb Simpson’s work ethic is unmatched by his peers. The fruits of his labor become clear every time he steps on the course,” said Alan Jay Kaufman, Chairman, President and CEO of H.W. Kaufman Financial Group, parent to Burns & Wilcox.” His integrity and drive on the golf course make us incredibly honored to have him as part of Team Burns & Wilcox.”
