Michigan-based trucker chosen as the brand ambassador for BlueParrott
BlueParrott, a leader in wireless headset technology, today announced Michael Kerrigan has been chosen as the winner of the BlueParrott Blue Believer contest. As its new brand representative, Kerrigan, owner of Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Restoration Transportation, will appear in a multi-platform marketing campaign for BlueParrott. Kerrigan will also lend his perspective to the BlueParrott team on new product, industry collaborations, and more.
“We were blown away by the number of enthusiastic responses to this contest,” said David Jaques, director of product marketing, BlueParrott. “We heard a number of heartwarming and compelling stories from our community and want to share them so that others can hear just how strong the connection is between BlueParrott and its fans.”
BlueParrott users from coast to coast entered the contest, designed to engage the company’s enthusiastic trucker fan base. Entrants submitted videos explaining why they should be the new face of BlueParrott. Kerrigan was selected for his knowledge and enthusiasm for the BlueParrott product line, as well as his loyalty and history of promoting the brand with other drivers.
Kerrigan got his start in the trucking industry in the early 1990s, spending a total of 18 years in the business and currently serving as owner/operator of his own firm with help from his wife. He drives a conventional sleeper, mainly operating in the Midwest, and has done both short and long-haul work in his career. He drives upwards of 120,000 miles a year, and when he’s on the road, he currently uses the BlueParrott B450-XT, switching over to the S450 when he’s off-duty.
"I have always been a huge BlueParrott fan, as my friends, fellow drivers and family can tell you," Kerrigan said. "I've been promoting this product for years, and have even shared some of my headsets with other drivers that were in need. Now, I look forward to spreading the word to the trucking community on a larger scale as the Blue Believer."
