Delta Air Lines says it’s bringing former star quarterback Tom Brady on board as a “long-term strategic adviser.”
In his new role, Brady will develop and advise strategic training and teamwork tools for Delta’s 90,000 employees, serve in marketing and engagement initiatives as well as support community efforts.
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is bringing on former NFLer Tom Brady as a strategic advisor, citing the football star’s expertise in “teamwork, performance and perseverance.”
“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,” Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in a news release announcing the partnership.
Delta did not disclose how much it is paying Brady.
Delta said Brady will play a role in marketing and help the Atlanta-based airline develop training and teamwork tools for its more than 90,000 employees. He will also appear on a series of Bastian’s “Gaining Altitude” video interviews to discuss topics including overcoming adversity.
Brady said he and NFL teammates flew on Delta many times, “even celebrating Super Bowl wins on the plane,” and has “loved and respected” the airline for years.
