Farmington Hills, Mich. (January 12, 2017) – Burns & Wilcox, North America’s leading wholesale insurance broker and underwriting manager, today officially announced a new golf sponsorship deal with 2012 U.S. Open winner Webb Simpson, along with an extension of its sponsorship of PGA champion Jimmy Walker.
Walker will continue to wear the Burns & Wilcox logo on the right side of his golf shirt. Simpson will showcase the Burns & Wilcox logo on the left side of his golf shirt. The Burns & Wilcox logo will also be featured on their respective caddies.
“Webb Simpson displays great drive and professionalism—values we both share—so we welcome him to Team Burns & Wilcox,” said Alan Jay Kaufman, Chairman, President and CEO, H.W. Kaufman Financial Group, parent company of Burns & Wilcox. “Like golf, insurance is a carefully calculated expertise that requires precision against a varying landscape, and the manner in which Jimmy and Webb play the sport represents how we win for our clients.”
This past summer, Team Burns & Wilcox experienced its first major victory when Walker won the 98th PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club with a one shot win over top-ranked Jason Day.
“I appreciate the support of Burns & Wilcox and look forward to continuing to build on the success of our long-term relationship. Burns & Wilcox is a great organization and an outstanding partner,” said Walker.
Four-time PGA victor Webb Simpson joins Team Burns & Wilcox as its second professional golf brand ambassador. His sponsorship was effective January 10, 2017.
“Burns & Wilcox is competitive, independent, and seeks constant growth – much like myself,” said Simpson. “I am proud to represent such a positive organization while playing the game I love.”
Simpson’s sponsorship kicks off this week during the Sony Open in Hawaii.
