FTI Consulting, a global business advisory firm, has signed a three-year sponsorship deal with Padraig Harrington, the PGA European Tour's Golfer of the Year.

The deal is believed to be worth around a total of US$12 million over the three-year contract, and comes just two months after the Irishman renegotiated a US$10 million agreement with his long-term equipment sponsor Wilson.

Under the FTI deal Harrington will display the company’s branding on the front of his cap and undertake co-marketing initiatives around the world for the duration of the agreement. The Wilson logo will now occupy both sides of his cap.

"FTI Consulting is one of the world's finest and most admired companies and I am delighted to have them as a partner as I begin the next phase of my career," said Harrington.

Declan Kelly, FTI's executive vice president said: "Our new partnership with Padraig Harrington represents the next stage in the evolution of the FTI brand and our company's presence all over the world."
