Deloitte and the United States Olympic Committee announced that the firm will continue its official professional services sponsorship of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams through 2020.
"Olympic and Paralympic athletes embody the highest ideals of competitive performance—integrity, talent, drive and commitment to quality—the same qualities Deloitte prides itself on as we work to inform the investing public, protect capital markets, and help our clients address their most critical and complex business challenges," said Joe Echevarria, chief executive officer of Deloitte, in a statement. "It is an honor to be able to participate in the storied Olympic tradition, both from the sidelines as fans and side-by-side as a sponsor providing professional services to the USOC and supporting its athletes."
Deloitte and its subsidiaries will support USOC and Team USA operations in the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
"This renewal is very good news for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams," stated Scott Blackmun, chief executive officer of the USOC. "From the beginning of our relationship in 2009, Deloitte has been instrumental in our mission to enable America's athletes to realize their Olympic and Paralympic dreams. As a partner and a trusted advisor, Deloitte has worked tirelessly to help us set long-term strategy, operate more efficiently and aid us in our mission of best serving Team USA athletes. I am confident the best is yet to come from this partnership."
Other member firms in the Deloitte network will also maintain Olympics relationships. Deloitte Canada is the official professional services supplier to the Canadian Olympic Committee, while Deloitte UK is the official professional services provider to the British Olympic Association and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
