CEO Connect: Jim Furyk and Cherry Bekaert Partnership
October 4, 2019
Cherry Bekaert LLP is excited to share a CEO Connect podcast with you. As part of a two-part series, Michelle Thompson, Firm Managing Partner, and Kip Plowman, Managing Partner, Strategic Markets & Growth, chatted with professional golfer Jim Furyk at TPC Sawgrass in Jacksonville, Florida. The Firm is proud of the recent sponsorship agreement with Furyk, a 16-time PGA TOUR Champion. The interview illuminated many connections with Furyk’s career. Like Cherry Bekaert, Jim has made and continues to make a difference in both his profession and his community.
In 2016, Jim received the Payne Stewart Award, which is presented annually to a professional golfer who best exemplifies Stewart’s steadfast values of character, charity, and sportsmanship. We believe Jim’s long-term success on and off the green aligns with our Firm’s shared values and why we are proud to sponsor Jim Furyk on the PGA TOUR.
The two-part podcast series covers a number of topics, including his long-standing career in a competitive environment, injuries and his comeback, his unique style of play, his advice on strong leadership, and how he and his wife, Tabitha, give back to the local community through the important charitable work at The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation.
