Porsche announces that Maria Sharapova has signed for a three year contract as the brand’s new global brand ambassador.
Santa Barbara Porsche is pleased to share the news that world-class athlete Maria Sharapova will be the new brand ambassador for Porsche AG. The 26-year old international tennis star signed on for a three year contract which places her as the face of a global communications and marketing campaign for Porsche AG.
“We are pleased to be affiliated with Maria Sharapova as the new Porsche brand ambassador,” shares Bill Fogg, General Sales Manager for Santa Barbara Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi. “Her reputation precedes her and complements our company’s legacy of excellence.”
Maria Sharapova is already familiar with the Porsche brand thanks to her performance at last year’s Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany. She won the competition and received a white 911 Carrera S Cabriolet as part of her winnings.
Legacies of Excellence
Sharapova does indeed have a legacy of excellence. She was born in Russia and has won victories at all four Grand Slam tournaments in women’s tennis, and was ranked number 1 for 21 weeks. As an exceptional athlete, she combines top performance with elegance, grace, and leadership – all qualities that are a part of Porsche’s heritage as well.
Sharapova stated that she is privileged to be chosen for the position and looks forward to the partnership. For Porsche, the choice of Maria Sharapova as brand ambassador also reinforces the company’s commitment to women’s tennis. Porsche is a sponsor of the German women’s national team and the Porsche Talent Team Germany, which supports promising young players.
