KPMG Congratulates Stacy Lewis On Becoming The No. 1 Ranked Female Golfer In The World 

Impressive Win at RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup Catapults Lewis to Top Ranking  

 

KPMG LLP, the audit, tax and advisory firm, congratulates LPGA Tour star Stacy Lewis on winning the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup and becoming the No.1 ranked female golfer in the world.  In February, KPMG deepened its relationship with Lewis to become her official hat sponsor.  As part of the new agreement with KPMG, Lewis – who jumps from No. 3 to No. 1 in the world – now wears the KPMG logo on her hat on the LPGA Tour.

“We are so happy to congratulate Stacy on this tremendous achievement, which is a testament to her hard work, and wish her continued success” said John Veihmeyer, Chairman and CEO of KPMG LLP. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor Stacy, a star on the LPGA Tour, and a woman who continues to inspire us and the world with her character, determination, and professionalism.”

 

The Stacy Lewis relationship is part of KPMG’s golf sponsorship platform, which began when the firm launched their global sponsorship agreement with PGA Tour star Phil Mickelson in 2008.
