By iSportconnect | April 4, 2012

The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) & Deloitte have agreed on a new sponsorship deal, which will see their partnership extend until 2020.

The contract allows Deloitte allows the opportunity to continue as the official professional services sponsor of the US Olympic and Paralympic teams, reaffirming their loyalty towards the Olympic Movement as a whole. Deloitte Canada is the official professional services supplier to the Canadian Olympic Committee and Deloitte UK serves in the same capacity for both the British Olympic Association and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“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,” Deloitte CEO Joe Echevarria said. “It is an honour 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.”

Scott Blackmun, CEO of the USOC, added: “This renewal is very good news for the US Olympic and Paralympic teams. From the beginning of our relationship in 2009, Deloitte has been instrumental in our mission to enable America’s athletes to realise their Olympic and Paralympic dreams. As a partner and a trusted advisor, Deloitte has worked tirelessly to help us set a 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.”
