Swiss watch brand, Hublot, has announced English golf star, Justin Rose, as its new brand ambassador.
Rose, who was an integral part of last year’s European Ryder Cup-winning team and has 17 world titles to his name, joins the likes of Usain Bolt, Pelé and Kobe Bryant as a Hublot ambassador, and becomes the first professional golfer in the brand’s portfolio.
Hublot of America’s Managing Director, Jean-Francois Sberro, hosted a charity event at the Torrey Pines golf course in San Diego to commemorate the unveiling of Rose. The announcement was followed by a playful game of golf between Rose and baseball star and friend of Hublot, Matt Kemp.
“It is an honour to add a world-famous professional golfer to our esteemed roster of brand ambassadors, all of whom are inspirations to both Hublot and our clients, said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot. "Justin’s astounding achievements through his perseverance and commitment to his celebrated career have made him a great fit for Hublot, and we look forward to this exciting partnership.”
Rose shared Guadalupe’s enthusiasm for the new partnership, saying, “I am thrilled to be joining Hublot as their newest ambassador, a brand I have long had an affinity for. To welcome Hublot into the game I love so much is truly an honour. Much like the mechanics of Hublot’s watches, I work tirelessly to ingrain precise movements in my swing. I look forward to representing Hublot as I continue my pursuit of excellence on the global stage.”
Hublot will cheer on Justin this season through its social media platforms in a #HublotGolf4Justin campaign.
