Having successfully negotiated the agreement at the Dubai Desert Classic in January with Paul Richardson, Director of Air Partner Private Jets, the young athlete will sport the Air Partner logo on his cap and act as an Air Partner Ambassador, supporting the brand as he travels around the world.

Though based in the United Kingdom, Air Partner operates out of twenty offices around the world, including Max's birthplace of Bergisch-Gladbach, Germany.

"I'm excited to partner with such a distinguished aviation provider, but I take an even greater, personal satisfaction in working with a company that operates from a place where I was born and close to my hometown Dusseldorf," said Max Kieffer at the signing ceremony in Dubai. "I'm proud to wear the Air Partner logo and to represent a leading European brand on the global golf circuit."

"Air Partner is committed to supporting this exceptional young talent, as he challenges the world's best professional players," Paul Richardson added.  "We were immediately attracted to Max's precision, concentration and his commitment to flawless execution; characteristics which we value in our own work. We couldn't have asked for a better ambassador for our brand."

Max is best known for his part in the longest-ever playoff in European Tour history against veteran Raphael Jacquelin at the Open de Espana in April 2013.  Though Max eventually finished second, his skill and tenacity has marked him as a rising talent among Europe's best professional players.
