Tom Brady has increased the scope of his post-NFL business endeavours by joining Delta Air Lines as a “strategic adviser” and “brand advocate.”
Was the mother of Tom Brady a flight attendant?
The renowned quarterback, who announced his retirement in February at the age of 45, has signed a ‘long-term’ contract with the airline. Ed Bastian, the CEO of Delta, voiced his high hopes by proclaiming, “Magic is going to happen.”
Brady has a special bond with this collaboration because his mother Galynn served as a flight attendant when he was a little boy. With this cooperation, Brady will share his “expertise in teamwork, performance, and perseverance,” as well as his “spirit of winning and passion for inspiring people to be the best version of themselves,” with Delta, which sees it as a “innovative new partnership.”
Brady’s duties will include ‘inspiring the next generation of Delta community leaders’ and helping to create training programmes and ‘teamwork tools’ for the airline’s more than 90,000 staff members.
In his extraordinary 23-year NFL career, the 46-year-old won seven Super Bowl titles. He spent 20 years with the New England Patriots before switching teams and winning a second Vince Lombardi Trophy with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Since he announced his retirement, Brady has kept himself busy with a number of business investments and prospects.
In August, the former quarterback became a minority owner of the English football team Birmingham City. He also made an investment in the WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces earlier this year.
According to team owner Mark Davis in May, Brady has ‘come to an arrangement’ to join the Las Vegas Raiders’ ownership group. The NFL must approve this.
Beginning with the 2019–2020 NFL season, Brady will take over as Fox Sports’ main NFL analyst. The 46-year-old has reportedly agreed to a ten-year, $375 million pact.
