Jay Nibbe, Ernst & Young’s Markets Leader, Europe,Middle East,IndiaandAfrica, says: “We are delighted to be an Official Partner of such a prestigious sporting occasion. The challenge of creating, building and managing teams has as much resonance in the business world as it does The Ryder Cup.

The European Ryder Cup Captain faces the added challenge of combining players from different countries with distinct cultures and playing styles into a coherent team unit. It is a high profile test of leadership and team-building. We are confident that José María’s open and inclusive style will lead the European Team to success in Medinah this year.”
