CME Group, the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, today announced its sponsorship of LPGA player Brittany Lincicome.
“CME Group is excited to increase its commitment to women’s professional golf by supporting Brittany Lincicome, one of the LPGA’s most promising young players,” said Anita Liskey, Managing Director Corporate Marketing & Communications, CME Group. “Sponsoring both Brittany and the LPGA through our one-of-a-kind CME Group Titleholders event broadens the reach of the CME Group brand globally and furthers our efforts in engaging with customers.”
