Lanto Griffin Partners with IES Communications as Global Brand Ambassador

PGA Tour player Lanto Griffin is proud to announce a new partnership with IES Communications. Lanto will serve as a worldwide ambassador for IES Communications, sporting the company logo on the chest of his apparel during PGA Tour competition and engaging with IES executives, employees, partners, and clients off the course.

Lanto Griffin is a native of Blacksburg, Virginia and a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University where he played on the Men’s golf team.  Lanto started playing golf professionally upon graduating college in 2010. His career to date has taken him to Europe, North, Central and South America. Lanto played full time on the 2017 Tour, and he had a breakthrough victory at the Nashville Open with rounds of 72-70-62-68 and a birdie on the first playoff hole to secure the win.  The 2017/2018 season marks Lanto’s rookie season on the PGA Tour, and he has already had success with a 12th place finish at the difficult Torrey Pines, site of the Farmers Insurance Open in January 2018.

“Playing on the PGA Tour has been a dream of mine since I was playing junior golf in Blacksburg, Virginia. To have achieved that, and to be able to partner with a company such as IES, which is nationwide but has roots in my hometown community is an honor” said Griffin, “I am so excited to represent such a great company on the PGA Tour and look forward to a long-term partnership with them!”

IES Communications was created as a structured cabling provider in 1984. Matt Simmes, President, joined in 1992. IES Communications has added new product lines and services and is now a leading provider of network infrastructure products and services for data centers and mission-critical environments across North America.

Matt Simmes, President of IES Communications stated, “IES admires the PGA Tour for its strong charitable foundation and Lanto for his unparalleled dedication to training and precision to accomplish his goals. These values are the driving force that established this partnership.  We at IES strive for mirror integrity which is a hallmark to the IES business.  The sponsorship of Lanto is an ideal way to reach a global audience who watch and play golf in the U.S. and around the world, as well as the opportunity to be associated with the PGA’s great tradition.”
