New England Patriots Legend Tom Brady Takes Front Office Job With…Delta Air Lines?
Even in retirement, Tom Brady manages to dominate the Jets.
Just days before Brady attends the Patriots' season opener at the newly renovated Gillette Stadium, it was announced that "The GOAT" will join Delta Airlines as strategic, long-term investor. The company says the deal connects the future Hall of Famer’s “expertise in teamwork, performance, and perseverance directly to Delta as a long-term strategic adviser.”
In a release, Delta CEO Ed Bastian said:
“Delta’s people are driven by their commitment to world-class performance, excellence and a desire to achieve best-in-class results. Bringing a leader like Tom onto the Delta team furthers our mission to connect the world while accelerating our drive to continuously improve for our colleagues, customers and communities.”
As part of the deal, Brady’s duties will include partnering with Delta to develop and advise on strategic training and teamwork tools, support the company’s brand identity, and support future Delta leaders and employees.
Said Brady, who is set to be honored by the Patriots in Foxboro on Sunday:
"I am grateful to be joining the Delta family, a company I have loved and respected for years. Growing up with a mother as a flight attendant, I have always admired the people that make seamless air transportation possible. Throughout my career, my teammates and I flew Delta countless times, spending hours traveling for some of the most important games of our lives, even celebrating Super Bowl wins on the plane. Those championship teams were built off of great leadership and a commitment to excellence, and Delta certainly shares those qualities.”
In light of recent events on airplanes, here’s hoping Rob Gronkowski behaved differently than when he visited the Family Guy offices to lay down a voice cameo.
