INDIANAPOLIS (July 8, 2013) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, announces today the appointment of Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing (SFHR) and Josef Newgarden as official brand ambassadors. As a professional racecar team and driver competing in the IZOD IndyCar Series, Klipsch envisions a long-term relationship that seamlessly integrates SFHR and Newgarden into all facets of the brand.
SFHR and Newgarden will be incorporated heavily into the product development and marketing efforts serving the brand itself, as well as its headphones and home audio products. Klipsch headphones and audio equipment are highly present among SFHR’s mechanics, engineers and staff. In addition, the team’s new 40,000-square-foot race shop utilizes Klipsch speakers for its large indoor and outdoor venues to create an acoustic layout with ideal sound absorption and projection specifically designed for their space.
“We are proud to be partners with Klipsch,” Sarah Fisher, co-owner of SFHR said. “Klipsch produces the best audio equipment around and our team is pleased to wear the latest Klipsch headphones and use the most advanced acoustic products. The Klipsch crew is a great group to work with.”
Proving invaluable will be Newgarden’s youthful insight and guidance as Klipsch works to develop fresh, lifestyle-focused products that meet the needs of new demographics, while still incorporating the brand’s legendary audio performance.
“It’s a privilege working with Klipsch and helping them develop and sell their latest products,” Newgarden said. “The people at Klipsch are awesome and they truly want to embrace the latest trends and ideas into their headphones.”
“As an Indianapolis-headquartered company, it is an honor to work alongside and be present in the racing community,” said Mike Klipsch, president of global operations for Klipsch for Klipsch. “Josef’s youth and passion are ideal for our brand, and we look forward to growing with him and SFHR throughout what is sure to be a long, successful career.”
SFHR and Newgarden are currently competing in their second season together and hold 15th place in the IZOD IndyCar Series championship standings.
