Stephens Inc., an independent financial services firm, announced today that it has expanded its golf brand ambassador program with the sponsorship of PGA Tour professional Nico Echavarria.
As part of the multi-year agreement, Echavarria will wear the Stephens logo on his golf apparel through 2025, participate in Stephens’ corporate events, client outings, as well as select advertising and social media engagements.
Echavarria played college golf for the University of Arkansas from 2013 until 2017, when he turned professional. He won twice during the 2018 PGA Tour Latinoamerica season, finishing second in the Order of Merit, gaining his card for the 2019 Korn Ferry Tour season. He earned his PGA Tour card via the 2022 Korn Ferry Tour Finals. In March of 2023, Echavarria won the Puerto Rico Open, firing a total of 21 under par to win by two shots and received a three year exemption on the PGA Tour.
“Throughout my life, I have believed that the game of golf instills a code of honor that directly translates to every aspect of life, whether in business or elsewhere,” said Warren Stephens, Chairman, President and CEO of Stephens Inc. “Therefore, I have found it increasingly important to support the game as much as possible as I have seen the positive impact it can have on young people, especially in the state of Arkansas. I am thrilled to have Nico join our team of brand ambassadors on the PGA Tour. He is a fine player and a fine man, and all of us at Stephens look forward to being a part of his success.”
“I am thrilled to begin this partnership with Stephens,” said Echavarria. “I am truly honored and proud to represent the Stephens brand, and I am honored to have their support. It’s exciting to look forward to working with Stephens both on and off the course.”
