Sharing Time with Clients and Friends at Sea Island


Below is RSM McGladrey’s Senior Director of Sports Marketing Ricki Lasky’s re-cap from yesterday’s activities related to The McGladrey Classic at Sea Island. Remember to check back tomorrow for her next update, and to take our online poll to let us know who you think will win the inaugural McGladrey Classic.

After another busy day of prepping for The McGladrey Classic and welcoming our first guests to the island, the day closed with an evening client reception at The Cloister’s Black Banks Terrace. The setting provided client servers with a relaxed setting and an opportunity to spend quality time with a few key clients – with a beautiful sunset view as the backdrop.

Highlights of the evening included comments from RSM McGladrey President and COO C.E. Andrews and McGladrey & Pullen Managing Partner and CEO Dave Scudder, who welcomed clients and talked about the charitable component of The McGladrey Classic, and the importance of giving back to the community.

Other special guests included students from the Hank Haney International Golf Academy in Hilton Head, S.C., along with their chaperone Ryley Hendry. These guests represented some of the best student golfers from around the world, and included Matt Rushton from South Africa, Nico Evangelista from the Philippines, Rica Park from Japan and Olivia Landino from Pennsylvania. After finishing this week’s classes and (for some) sitting for SATs Saturday, the students will return to enjoy the final day of The McGladrey Classic on Sunday.

What’s on tap for today? Welcoming more clients and guests, many of whom are playing the Frederica Golf Course “as we speak.” We’ll wrap up with an evening reception at Davis Love III’s home which will, no doubt, provide another perfect opportunity to further enhance relationships with our clients and potential clients.

Until tomorrow…
