Air Partner, a world leader in private, commercial and freight aviation charter, has announced its new partnership with European Pro Tour golfer Max Kieffer and the beginning of a much-hoped for relationship with the world of professional golf.
Best known for his part in the longest-ever playoff in European Tour history against veteran Raphael Jacquelin at the Open de España in April last year, although Max eventually finished second, his skill and tenacity marked him out as a rising star among Europe’s best professional players.
This is the first of appointment of its kind for Air Partner – which is fully listed on the London Stock Exchange and the only company of its kind to hold a Royal Warrant. Committed to supporting emerging sporting talent, the company, which flies individuals, corporations and governments all over the world, is a fitting sponsor for a European Tour player who may fly up to 190,000 miles each year.
Having successfully negotiated the agreement at the Dubai Desert Classic in January with Paul Richardson, Director of Air Partner Private Jets, the young rookie will sport the Air Partner logo on his cap representing the prestigious brand as he travels around the world as well as hosting a number of golf days and events which will fall into the company’s sporting and social calendar.
Of the appointment, Richardson said, “Air Partner is committed to supporting this exceptional young talent as he challenges the world’s best professional players. We were immediately attracted to Max’s precision, concentration and his commitment to flawless execution; characteristics which we value in our own work. We couldn’t have asked for a better ambassador for our brand.”
“I’m excited to partner with such a distinguished aviation provider, but I take an even greater, personal satisfaction in working with a company that operates from a place where I was born and close to my hometown Düsseldorf,” said Max Kieffer at the signing ceremony in Dubai. “I’m proud to wear the Air Partner logo and to represent a leading European brand on the global golf circuit.”
Though based in the United Kingdom, Air Partner operates out of twenty offices around the world, including Max’s birthplace of Bergisch-Gladbach in Germany and must be seen as a welcome addition to the European Tour.
