European Ryder Cup legend and reigning Race to Dubai champion Lee Westwood has signed a three-year deal to perform an ambassadorial role for iCapital Network, a global financial technology company whose headquarters are based in New York.
iCapital will launch the sponsorship at this week’s US Masters Tournament at Augusta, where Westwood will debut the iCapital logo on his clothing during the first major of the year.
Lawrence Calcano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iCapital Network, said: “As an avid golf fan, I have long admired Lee, not only as a gifted golfer, but as a distinguished professional who consistently demonstrates so much of what we value at iCapital – perseverance, commitment to being the consummate teammate, and playing for the long-term.
“We are proud to have Lee as our ambassador and look forward to enthusiastically supporting him at The Masters and beyond. As iCapital accelerates its international expansion, having such an internationally-renowned brand ambassador further demonstrates our commitment to bringing innovative solutions to the global marketplace.”
Westwood, 47, winner of last year’s European Tour money list, said: “I am incredibly excited to represent the iCapital brand and the values that we share. I look forward to a long-term partnership and I’m grateful for their team’s support.
In addition to partnering with Westwood in client-facing and promotional activities, iCapital will support many of the philanthropic pursuits that the Ryder Cup star has championed through the Sir Graham Wylie Foundation, Children’s Hospital Sheffield and a variety of children’s health and sporting charities.
