Teeing Up the McGladrey Brand





Given McGladrey’s recent brand launch activities, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson’s recent Colonial (We can’t decide if he looks better in plaid or in “Masters” green!) win and release of McGladrey’s annual MWD Survey results, our adrenalin is pumping! Those of us here at McGladrey are excited about the direction of our company and about our continued commitment to the world of golf.

During last week’s brand launch, Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco, McGladrey executives, a Special Olympics athlete and Minneapolis-area celebrities “chipped for charity,” into a life-sized putting green cake, raising $2,500 for Special Olympics. After feeding the hundreds of employees and clients who gathered in McGladrey’s Minneapolis office for the event, left-over cake was shared with local food shelters. We were happy to share our excitement about the new McGladrey brand with those in need.

And this past weekend, all three Team McGladrey members played – Natalie Gulbis in the State Farm Classic in Illinois, and Chris DiMarco and Zach Johnson in the St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tennessee. Zach finished tied for 12th, while Chris finished tied for 61st. Natalie endured a weather-delay-filled-weekend, resulting in the tournament having to finish today. Play resumed at 7a.m.in far more favorable conditions than this past weekend!

Finally, more exciting progress has been made around The McGladrey Classic: Last week, tickets for the Oct. 7-10 Fall Series event went on sale. Prices are: Wednesday - $20; Thursday or Friday - $25; Saturday or Sunday - $30; and $15/day for youth (ages 13-17). Children 12 and under are free with a paid adult. Active and retired military, law enforcement officers and firefighters will be admitted free-of-charge with the presentation of their official ID.
