McLaren signs new partnership with Gillette for Asia
The McLaren formula 1 team has agreed a new marketing deal with Gillette.
Gillette, a leading brand in men's shaving equipment, will create advertising featuring McLaren, focussing on the Asian market - kicking off with this weekend's event in Shanghai, China.
Procter & Gamble's ShaveCare Asia General Manager, Max Menozzi, said, "This new partnership between Vodafone McLaren Mercedes and Gillette in Asia is a great match: both are world-class brands and both share a passion for winning performance and superior engineering. Together we will now collaborate during the Formula 1 season, and beyond, on a series of exciting initiatives targeted at men across Asia, such as innovative in-store activation, limited-edition razors and a number of other special offers.‚Äù
McLaren Team Principal, Martin Whitmarsh said, "As one of the most successful teams in Formula 1, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes has a long history of attracting and partnering with the world‚Äôs top brands.
‚ÄúIndeed, the ongoing relationship we enjoy with so many of our partners is not only a testament to the incredible return on investment we are able to deliver for them, but also to the shared values and loyalties that we‚Äôve built together over many successful years.
‚ÄúFor Vodafone McLaren Mercedes to initiate a new partnership with a major multi-national blue-chip brand like Gillette is a terrific opportunity for global promotional activity. Indeed, we are already planning to implement a number of innovative activation strategies across key territories throughout the year.
‚ÄúFormula 1 has already seen several large multi-national corporations come onboard this year, so this partnership once again underlines the inherent and ongoing opportunity and value of entering one of the most popular and watched sports in the world ‚Äì and with one of grand prix racing‚Äôs best established and most consistently competitive teams.‚Äù
