McCaw signs with Mercedes

Kiwi-icon Richie McCaw has a new way of getting around – when not flying helicopters that is – joining Mercedes Benz as a ‘Friend of the Brand’.

The 2016 New Zealander of the Year’s vehicle of choice is a GLE 350d.

Mercedes Benz Cars New Zealand general manager Ben Giffin says, “We are extremely proud to welcome Richie McCaw as our latest Mercedes-Benz ‘Friend of the Brand’.

“We couldn’t think of a better fit for our brand than Richie, and we are absolutely delighted to align with someone of his calibre, who perfectly embodies the Mercedes-Benz ethos of ‘The Best or Nothing’.”

McCaw says the GLE suits his lifestyle.

“It suits my lifestyle perfectly – all the technology that these cars come with now is pretty awesome and they’re great to drive. It’s comfy to ride in and there is plenty of room to throw my gear in and do all the things that I do in my busy lifestyle.”

The other ‘Friends of the Brand’ include Simon Wright and his French Cafe, Kate Sylvester and Working Style.
