Kilroy extends US Sailing Team support
Published on June 3rd, 2021
Building upon the last four years of partnership, Los Angeles-headquartered Kilroy Realty (Kilroy) and the United States Sailing Team have extended the primary sponsorship. The commitment will advance a shared vision to amplify positive community impact while supporting the US Sailing Team in its pursuit of excellence on the international stage.
Led by Chairman and CEO John Kilroy, a world-class sailor and multiple world champion, the company’s philosophy is intrinsically tied to teamwork and innovation. This philosophy was foundational to Kilroy establishing itself as North America’s preeminent developer, owner, and operator of sustainable real estate.
“Sailing has been part of Kilroy’s culture from the very beginning, and it’s served us well,” said Kilroy. “By supporting the exceptional athletes on the US Sailing Team, who routinely remind us of what it takes to win, we honor this vibrant community known for producing future business leaders.”
Kilroy’s primary sponsorship supports the athletes by funding technological advancements, innovative fitness training, coaching, research and development, as well as vital campaign costs such as specialized support personnel and high-performance equipment upgrades.
“If you want to win at the highest level, you can’t cut any corners and you need to build broad community support,” said Paul Cayard, Executive Director of U.S. Olympic Sailing. “John Kilroy understands both requirements, and his record on and off the water shows this clearly.
“John and his team at Kilroy Realty are not only providing substantial services directly to our athletes but are providing a new model for how individuals and brands can help US Sailing rebuild our domestic training platform. Kilroy’s performance philosophy will be key to the resurgence of our national team.”
