Armor All Announces Jenson Button As First Global Brand Ambassador

Armor All Names Jenson Button 1st Global Brand Ambassador

This partnership with the Formula 1 racing legend is part of a broader international marketing effort.

Armor All, a leading brand in high quality auto care products for every car owner, has named Jenson Button as the brand’s first-ever global brand ambassador. Button, the 2009 Formula 1 World Champion, will support Armor All as the brand accelerates its marketing efforts in markets around the world spanning Europe, Latin America and Asia. 

The maker of Armor All, Energizer Holdings, says it is committed to building strong partnerships with customers and significantly growing brand awareness and distribution in new markets to ensure consumers around the globe can access Armor All products.

Through the multi-year partnership, Button will appear in international marketing campaigns, Armor All-branded video content and social media. He also will share car care tips and advice on social media as well as make personal appearances at trade and employee events.

“We’re thrilled to enter into the exciting world of Grand Prix racing and welcome Jenson Button as the Armor All brand’s first-ever global brand ambassador,” said Lori Shambro, chief marketing officer of Energizer Holdings Inc. “Our partnership with Jenson represents the first of many marketing efforts that will help Armor All connect and engage with new consumers around the world and showcase how our high quality, innovative and easy-to-use products can benefit every car owner no matter their level of expertise.”

“As someone who has had a lifelong love affair with cars, and all things automotive, I know first-hand how important high-quality car care products are to the look and feel of a car,” said Formula 1 racing legend, Jenson Button. “From the moment my father bought me a go-kart at the age of 8, through to winning the F1 World Championship, I’ve obsessed over the smallest details of the cars in my life and I’m delighted to be working with Armor All, a brand that shares that same obsession.”

Button is considered one of the greatest Grand Prix drivers of all time, winning the 2009 Formula 1 World Championship and accumulating 15 race wins and 50 podium finishes during his 17 years in F1. Button is more recently the founder of Extreme E team JBXE, in which he will also compete. The brand partnership was brokered by Project 11.
