INDIANAPOLIS (August 6, 2013) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, announces today the appointment of Robert Mathis as an official brand ambassador. As a professional athlete making significant strides for the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, Klipsch envisions a long-term relationship that seamlessly integrates Mathis into all facets of the brand.
An established brand fan and product user, Mathis will be incorporated heavily into the product development, marketing and social efforts serving the brand itself, as well as its headphones and home audio products. Proving invaluable will be his 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.
“To me, Klipsch is more ‘quality over quantity,’ and that’s what I love most about them,” stated Mathis.
“As a proud sponsor of the Indianapolis Colts, it’s an honor to have Robert play an integral role in defining our brand vision,” said Steve Klipsch, senior vice president of operations for Klipsch. “Because Robert’s youth, passion and high-achievement standards translate perfectly across our brand ideals, he will help play a major role in creating new opportunities for brand and product visibility.”
Mathis joins recent Klipsch brand ambassadors that include DeMar Derozan (Toronto Raptors), Roy Hibbert (Indiana Pacers), Josef Newgarden (IndyCar) and Graham Rahal (IndyCar).
