NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iCapital Network1, the leading global financial technology platform driving access and efficiency in alternative investing for the asset and wealth management industries, today announced a 3-year brand ambassador partnership with Professional Golfer Will Zalatoris, currently ranked 29th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
iCapital is launching the sponsorship on June 17th at the 121st United States Open Championship in San Diego, California, where Will is set to debut the iCapital logo.
After turning pro in 2018 at the age of 21, Will has gained attention as an impressive up and comer in the professional golf world. Will earned his first professional win at the 2020 TPC Colorado Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour, which helped him qualify for the 2020 U.S. Open where he went on to tie for sixth place with the world’s current top-ranked golfer. Most notably, he finished runner-up in this year’s Masters Tournament, trailing a first-place finish by only one stroke, with a score of 9-under-par.
Most recently, in just his third major championship appearance, Will earned an eighth-place result at the 2021 PGA Championship. He has been credited as having poise and focus beyond his years as his success contributes to ever-increasing expectations.
“Will’s breakout performance and drive for continual improvement has quickly made him one to watch on the professional golf circuit. As a long-time follower of the sport, it’s exciting to see new talent emerge and capture the imagination of fans so quickly,” said Lawrence Calcano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iCapital Network. “The brand ambassador partnership with Will was a natural fit for us; he brings new and exciting energy to a game that is rapidly becoming more nuanced and technology driven, just as we aim to do with alternative investing.”
“Representing the iCapital team is an exciting new chapter for me as I continue making strides in my career,” said Will. “I am thrilled to kick off the long-term partnership and greatly appreciate iCapital’s support.”
