February 17, 2022 – NFP, a leading insurance broker and consultant that provides property and casualty, corporate benefits, retirement and individual solutions, today announced a multi-year sponsorship agreement with golf star Darren Clarke. Clarke is a three-time champion on the PGA Tour and 14-time winner on the European Tour, and has three PGA Tour Champions wins, where he now plays full time. His major championship victory came at the 2011 Open Championship at Royal St George's Golf Club.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Darren to the NFP family and continue building a sponsorship program that reflects our values,” said Eric Boester, NFP’s CMO. “Darren’s character, global recognition and work to improve communities make him an ideal partner, and we look forward to working together to increase our impact in key areas.”
As part of the sponsorship, Clarke will wear the NFP logo on his left collar and participate in NFP events in Ireland, the UK and United States. Clarke and NFP will also explore opportunities to collaborate on initiatives through the Darren Clarke Foundation, which brings the game of golf to young people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to play.
