Deloitte Announces Sponsorship of U.S. Olympic Committee and U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams

Deloitte today announced its sponsorship of the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), the 2010 and 2012 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams, as well as the 2011 U.S. Pan American Team and the 2010 U.S. Team for the Youth Olympic Games. As a result of its commitment to provide the strengths of its organization for maximum social impact, Deloitte and its subsidiaries will provide support to help the USOC and U.S. Teams operate efficiently and successfully throughout their journey to the Olympic, Paralympic, Pan Am and Youth Olympic Games.

As the Official Professional Services Sponsor of audit, tax, consulting and financial advisory services, Deloitte's subsidiaries will contribute by offering a variety of in-kind professional services to the USOC.

"We believe the business community has a powerful role to play in answering the call to service to help nonprofit organizations deliver results," said Barry Salzberg, CEO, Deloitte LLP. "There is no better opportunity to put the intellectual capital and business knowledge of our people to work than through the delivery of our exceptional professional services capabilities for the strategic, operational, and financial benefit of the USOC and U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and hopefuls."

"We are proud to welcome Deloitte to our family of sponsors and appreciate the expertise and support they bring in preparing America's athletes for the Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games," said Stephanie Streeter, USOC Acting Chief Executive Officer. "This contribution and the breadth of capabilities they bring will be instrumental in our mission to enable America's athletes to realize their Olympic and Paralympic dreams."

Deloitte's core values - integrity, strength from cultural diversity, and commitment to each other - are reflected in the Olympic Movement. In addition to Deloitte, other member firms of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu have committed to the international Olympic Movement. Deloitte Canada is the Official Professional Services Supplier to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games and Deloitte UK is the Official Professional Services Provider of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Separately, subsidiaries of Deloitte have been engaged to provide pro bono services to Chicago 2016 which is bidding for the right to host the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
