CHICAGO, February 11, 2013/ -- Clune Construction today announced it has signed a long-term partnership agreement with PGA Tour and international professional golfer Padraig Harrington.
Clune Construction is one of the nation's largest commercial interior construction companies, and the official pairing of Clune and Harrington emerged from an interim branding arrangement last year when Clune helped in the raising of funds for the Padraig Harrington Charitable Foundation. The two men, both Irish born with a commitment to philanthropy, soon formed a friendship that led to the long-term partnering of Clune Construction and Padraig Harrington.
Padraig Harrington, one of the world's best golfers, has won more than 25 tournaments worldwide, including back to back British Open Championships titles in 2007 & 2008 and the U.S. PGA Championship in 2008. As part of his role as ambassador, Harrington will wear the Clune Construction logo on his shirts during tournaments, and is very pleased to unite with the civic-minded company. "I have a full schedule this year, with tournaments throughout the US, Europe and around the world, and look forward to representing the Clune name both on and off the golf course, " Harrington said. "I'm impressed with their business and delighted to partner with them."
Michael Clune, founder of Clune Construction, believes the partnership between Clune Construction and Padraig Harrington will thrive and create long-lasting benefits for both parties. "We are excited about this partnership and glad to be a part of the Harrington team, which includes his active charitable foundation," said Clune. "Padraig's brand values match up well with ours, and we think he will be a respected and valuable ambassador for us as he competes around the world. Our organization also is thrilled that Padraig has agreed to join with our company for several golf-related special events this year."
Clune Construction is known for its involvement with various charitable organizations and places a high value on giving back to the communities it serves. "Our company is committed to helping community organizations and finding unique ways to meld business and community ventures. It is our hope that that partnerships such as this, beyond the business sponsorship element, can provide another avenue to assist in doing that," according to Clune.
