Timo Hildebrand is new JAKO brand ambassador
JAKO is launching a partnership with Timo Hildebrand. The long-time VfB Stuttgart player and former national goalkeeper will represent the team sports brand from Baden-Württemberg as a brand ambassador with immediate effect. 

Tobias Röschl, Director of Marketing & Sales JAKO, is looking forward to the cooperation: "With Timo we have found a brand ambassador who is an excellent fit for us. Through his long career with VfB Stuttgart, there is not only a direct connection to our close partner, but also regional proximity. At the same time, Timo embodies many values that are important to us as a family business. In addition to team spirit and reliability, these include a commitment to sustainability and social engagement. We are proud to be able to inspire him as a well-known soccer personality for our brand and to start many joint projects with him."

Timo Hildebrand says: "I am delighted and honored to be able to represent JAKO as a brand ambassador with immediate effect. Through my connection to VfB Stuttgart, we already had some points of contact, which we are now intensifying into a cooperation. JAKO embodies team spirit and passion for sports. At the same time, the company is very committed to the issue of sustainability. This suits me and my vision, and I am excited about the many opportunities that will arise with our cooperation.

With the start of the cooperation, Hildebrand simultaneously joins the circle of JAKO brand ambassadors, which also includes, for example, Niko Kappel (para-shot putter), Mo Jamal ("Football Freestyler") and Jordi Quintilla (FC St. Gallen player).
