PV Sindhu became Bridgestone India’s first brand ambassador in 2017. During her visit she interacted and spoke with employees all of whom have been her ardent fans and well-wishers.
“Bridgestone India is committed towards women in sports. Three of the four of our brand ambassadors are women. We are also focused towards sponsoring training and currently thirty two athletes are benefiting from Bridgestone sponsored training under renowned coaches. We are confident that these athletes will also bring laurels to the country” said Mr. Parag Satpute-Managing Director, Bridgestone India.
“I am honoured to be associated with Bridgestone India and particularly to be the organization’s first brand ambassador. Bridgestone has a strong sports lineage which is also strengthened with their Worldwide Olympic Partnership and their commitment to furthering the cause of India sports.
