The Celebrated Golfer and Philanthropist is Named Hublot Brand Ambassador
Hublot announce in February 2015 golf superstar Justin Rose as its newest Brand Ambassador. Rose, who currently holds seventeen titles worldwide, including the 2013 U.S. Open, joins the ranks of internationally renowned Brand Ambassadors, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Pelé, Usain Bolt and more, as the first professional golfer to partner with the brand.
To commemorate the brand’s newest ambassador, Hublot of America, Managing Director Jean-Francois Sberro hosted a charity event at the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, CA, host course for the PGA Tour’s 2015 Farmers Insurance Open. The announcement was followed by a playful game of golf between Justin Rose and Matt Kemp, San Diego Padres’ star and friend of Hublot in his first outside media appearance since joining the team. Rose and Kemp teamed up for a putt-off on the course, while Rose gave golf pointers to the San Diego Padres newest player to raise awareness and proceeds for the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation. The charitable organization is dedicated to feeding hungry tummies and curious minds of underserved youth with programs dedicated to nutrition, education and experiences. Hublot will cheer on Justin this season through its social media platforms in a #HublotGolf4Justin campaign.
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, shared: “It is an honor 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. 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.” Justin Rose stated: “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 honor. 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.”
Rose established his golf career in 1998 at the British Open, and over the past seventeen years has reached astonishing achievements, including being named the third-ranked worldwide player in 2013. As a 6-Time PGA Tour Champion, while holding seven victories on the European Tour, Rose and his new role as Brand Ambassador serve to further strengthen Hublot’s connection to professional athletics, specifically golf, as one of the world’s most popular sports. Aside from Rose’s golf achievements, he is celebrated as a philanthropist and a global statesman, making him the perfect ambassador for Hublot.
