Constellation Signs Multiyear Sponsorship Agreement With Golfing Great Jim Furyk
Constellation, the company that owns and runs the Metro DES, today announced it has signed a multiyear sponsorship agreement with golfing great Jim Furyk that will feature prominent brand assets and promotional and hospitality opportunities on and off the PGA Tour.
Constellation’s logo will be prominently featured on Furyk’s tournament apparel–two locations on the golfer’s shirt – for all tournaments and professional functions during the three-year term (2013–2015).
Furyk, a 42-year-old, 20-year Professional Golfers Association (PGA) professional and U.S. Open champion, also will be featured in promotional materials and participate in Constellation-sponsored hospitality events. Further terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“Jim is a world-class professional who has won 16 tournaments and played at a championship level for two decades,” said Kenneth Cornew, president and CEO, Constellation. “He’s passionate about winning, and his approach to the game is intelligent, analytical and, above all, strategic. It’s the same philosophy we embrace in helping customers customize a strategy to meet their complex energy and power supply needs. Jim is a consummate pro our customers can relate to, and we’re pleased he’ll be championing the Constellation brand on and off the course.”
Furyk, currently 27th in global golf rankings, enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with Exelon Corporation, Constellation's parent company, serving as host of the Exelon Invitational Tournament in Pennsylvania from 1999–2010.
“Constellation is an industry leader, serving more than 1 million customers nationwide and two-thirds of the Fortune 100,” said Furyk. “We share the same approach to strategy, competition and winning, and I’m proud to represent the company and serve as an ambassador to its customers.”
