Miami, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- THE COLLECTION, South Florida’s premiere luxury automotive dealership, today announced that Miami HEAT guard and all-time points leader Dwyane Wade, has re-signed with the company as the face of the brand.

“Over the years, Dwyane Wade has distinguished himself as one of the greatest players in the NBA and we are honored to welcome him back to his home at THE COLLECTION,” says Ken Gorin, President and CEO. “His connection with the community combined with his drive on and off the court, reflects the same standards that we strive for at THE COLLECTION.  He is an icon and the ideal ambassador for our brand.  We are very fortunate to have him back as part of our family.”

Wade first signed with THE COLLECTION in November of 2010 and represented the company through 2016. THE COLLECTION drove alongside him in two Championship Parades and launched several cars together including the Porsche Boxster, the Audi A7, the Maserati Ghibli and the Jaguar F-PACE and XE. Dwyane is a natural fit and embodies all the ideals that the company strives for which is why THE COLLECTION never signed on another spokesperson after Wade’s 2016 departure from Miami. Over the last two years, THE COLLECTION and Wade have grown individually and professionally and will once again join forces to produce content and experiences that will have a large positive influence in the community.

 “I’m looking forward to partnering with THE COLLECTION again as we have always had a great relationship and they have always made me feel like family,” said Miami HEAT Champion Dwyane Wade. “I’m excited to continue working with a world-class company that provides unparalleled service.”

As South Florida’s hometown hero, Wade has played 13 seasons in Miami, appearing in 855 regular-season games while averaging almost 24 points per game and winning three titles all while enriching the community through his charitable efforts.
