Al Ghandi Auto, the long-standing dealer partner of GMC in Dubai and Northern Emirates, has signed a year-long ambassadorship agreement with basketball champion, Fadi El Khatib. As part of this partnership, Mowfaq Al Haridi, Sales Team Leader at Al Ghandi Auto, handed over the keys of the 2021 GMC Sierra Denali to Fadi El Khatib in the presence of senior representatives from Al Ghandi Auto.
Mark Jenkins, CEO of Al Ghandi Auto Group, commented: “Thousands of basketball fans across the entire region spent years watching Fadi El Khatib own the stadium and collect trophies, one game after the other. We believe that Fadi’s “winning” mindset, adventurous spirit, high standards, and active lifestyle are truly reflected in the GMC Sierra, which made this a natural partnership. We are delighted to have Fadi as an ambassador for Al Ghandi Auto and we can’t wait to work closely with him.’
Throughout his 25 year-career, renowned veteran athlete Fadi El Khatib, nicknamed “the Lebanese Tiger”, has participated in hundreds of games and championships, representing his country in the 2002 FIBA World Championship in Indianapolis in the United States; as well as the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Japan, and the 2010 FIBA World Championship held in Turkey, to name a few.
Upon receiving the GMC Sierra, Fadi El Khatib said: “I’ve always loved and resonated with GMC as a brand and I have sought after the GMC Sierra ever since I first saw it. From its premium dominating looks to its innovative features, its exceptional capabilities across all terrains and most importantly its generous space for an almost 2 meters tall man, it is exactly what I need. I am very excited about this partnership with Al Ghandi Auto, and confident it is the start of a bright journey together.”
Available across Al Ghandi Auto showrooms and website in SLE/SLT, Elevation, AT4 and Denali trims, the 2021 GMC Sierra was engineered in a way to make the best even better. It is taller, bolder, stronger and larger. And with the available world’s-first six-function GMC MultiPro™ Tailgate, this premium truck is also revolutionary.
The GMC Sierra joins Fadi’s GMC collection as he also recently purchased the all-new GMC Yukon Denali, the premium SUV that delivers a first-class experience. The all-new GMC Yukon is packed with new and class-leading technologies, state-of-the-art engineering and performance that truly take this sophisticated driving experience to yet another level.
