INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck’s first significant endorsement deal will be with an Indianapolis-based company.
Klipsch, maker of audio gear like speakers, headphones and home theater products, announced Monday that Luck would serve as an official “brand ambassador.” The multi-year partnership will utilize Luck in Klipsch’s product development, marketing and social efforts. The company said he would develop his own series of headphones.
Luck said he wanted to think local when looking at endorsements.
“When I first experienced Klipsch products, I was instantly impressed. I became even more interested in learning about the company when I found out it was based in Indianapolis,” Luck said. “Partnering with a local company is very important to me, and the fact that Klipsch makes the best sounding speakers and headphones I’ve ever heard adds great value to this collaboration.”
Klipsch CEO Paul Jacobs said Luck reached out to them to express his interest in the company’s products.
“As a staple in both the community and international sports arena, he will help play a major role in creating new opportunities for brand and product visibility,” Jacobs said. “With our brand ideals aligned, this organically-developed relationship is one we look forward to having for years to come.”
Luck joins teammate Robert Mathis, the Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert, the Toronto Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan, and IndyCar’s Josef Newgarden and Graham Rahal as brand ambassadors for Klipsch.
