Choice signs sponsorship with LPGA’s Kaufman

Kim Kaufman

Fargo-based Choice Bank, a division of Choice Financial, is adding another partnership with the sponsorship of LPGA Tour Member, Kim Kaufman. She joins Minnesota wide receiver Adam Thielen as a Choice Bank partner in community engagement.

Kaufman, who started playing golf at the age of four, was a four-time high school state champion in South Dakota and a two-time All-American at Texas Tech. She joined the LPGA Tour in 2014, and has had eleven career top-tens.

“I am proud to represent Choice Bank at the Women’s PGA championship this June,” Kaufman said. “I have a great respect for Choice Bank and their People First approach.”

As part of the multi-year agreement, Kaufman will wear the Choice Bank logo on her golf hat during tournament play. In addition, she will participate in corporate events, as well as select advertising and social media.

“People first is the heartbeat that drives our everyday decisions and influences how we engage with our customers, colleagues and community” said Tim Heilman,  executive vice president and chief brand and innovation officer of Choice Bank. “All of us at Choice are excited to welcome Kim to our professional family as we continue to attract people who share our values. We are excited to partner with Kim both on and off the golf course.”

Kaufman and the rest of the LPGA tour will play in the KMPG Women’s PGA Championship at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn., on June 20-23.

The $2.1 billion Choice Financial has 15 offices in North Dakota and five in Minnesota.
