Lenovo India has named Ranbir Kapoor as its official brand ambassador. Ranbir will endorse Lenovo's range of products that are high on both style and performance. The company said the announcement is in tandem with its focus on becoming the preferred brand for the youth of India.
Lenovo's decision to sign on Ranbir as its brand ambassador comes shortly after it was announced the No. 1 PC vendor in India by IDC and the largest exclusive PC retailer in the country.
Shailendra Katyal, Director- Marketing, Lenovo India, said, "We want to play aggressively in the consumer space and become the most preferred PC brand among the Youth. Signing on Ranbir Kapoor is a strong step towards the evolution of the Lenovo brand and in line with our brand philosophy 'For Those Who DO'. Lenovo's products are known for its combination of style and performance and world class quality. Ranbir embodies an exemplary blend of both style and performance, making him the ideal choice for Lenovo."
"With his remarkable appeal to youngsters across the country, we are confident Ranbir will communicate our brand's 'DO' attributes to our consumers effectively," added Katyal.
"I have always been passionate about technology and I am really excited to be associated with a global technology brand like Lenovo which creates the most innovative performance machines. I believe great things come to those who challenge the present and I am proud to partner with Lenovo's passion to empower DOERS and put technology in the hands of people who don't just dream the extraordinary but actually make things happen," said Ranbir Kapoor.
Lenovo will launch a set of TV commercials starring the actor. The campaign will be on air between June 8 - 12, 2012.
"Lenovo has a terrific performer in its new range of machines. It's also a leap in design. The campaign has been written to showcase the cutting-edge look and substance. Ranbir is one of the young and impressive stars in the country and he fits the values that we want the brand to stand for. The combination of the machine, the communication idea and Ranbir, will surely create a place above the rest for the Lenovo machines," said Rajiv Rao, National Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather.
