Tipperary GAA Announces New Sponsorship Agreement with Global CEO Advisory Firm Teneo

Tipperary GAA is delighted to announce that it has reached an agreement with Teneo, the world's leading global CEO advisory firm to become its lead sponsor. The sponsorship takes effect from 1 January2019 and incorporates the county's hurling and football teams, from minors through to seniors.

Commenting on the sponsorship agreement, Tipperary GAA Chairman John Devane said, “Tipperary County Board is delighted to announce that it has entered into a sponsorship agreement with Teneo. Teneo is the world's leading CEO advisory firm and has strong links to our county, with its Chairman, CEO and co-founder Declan Kelly being a proud Tipperary native and longtime private supporter of Tipperary GAA initiatives in the last several years. He is a lifelong friend of Tipperary senior hurling manager Liam Sheedy, both of whom come from Portroe, and we thank him for taking on this important new leadership role on behalf of the Premier County.”

“The ability to tap into the strategic talents of one of the world's leading advisory firms will be hugely beneficial. Teneo's partnership will assist us to further Tipperary GAA both, on and off the field, and to create sustainable support and structures to encourage participation at all levels and imbed a culture of excellence. Teneo will be much more than a jersey sponsor and very much a strategic partner.”

“We have long sought to cultivate a strong relationship with our Diaspora and this double commitment reflects very positively on Tipperary GAA. We thank Declan and Teneo for this and look forward to working with them as we move into the 2019 season and in the years ahead,” he concluded.

Separate to the sponsorship commitment, Declan Kelly has agreed to establish and chair a Commercial Board that will support the ongoing strategic development of the Tipperary senior hurling team under Liam's management.

Teneo is the global CEO advisory firm and has over 700 employees and 18 offices around the world.
