Societe Generale Private Banking renews its partnership with the French golfer Thomas Levet

Societe Generale Private Banking has renewed its support for the French player Thomas Levet, winner of the French Open in 2011. This sponsorship will last for two years.

As well as this talented player, the private bank also sponsors three other top-level golfers: Angel Cabrera, winner of the US Open in 2007, the Augusta Masters in 2009, and runner-up in the 2013 Masters, Jeev Milkha Singh, winner of the Scottish Open in 2012, and Christian Cévaër, winner of the European Open in 2009.

Societe Generale Private Banking’s support for these 4 golfers is part of a broader approach by Societe Generale group, which dates back to 2001 when the bank became a major partner of the French Golf Federation. Since 2008, Societe Generale has also partnered the Evian Masters, a major international women’s tournament.
