At Lexus of Blackburn we are proud to partner with a number of accomplished individuals who embody Lexus values, and who represent us as Lexus of Blackburn Ambassadors. Our celebrity ambassadors are Ricky Ponting, Eddie McGuire, Luke Darcy, Dannii Minogue and Giaan Rooney.

Eddie McGuire

Eddie McGuire is one of Australia's most accomplished and versatile television personalities.  After, signing with Channel 9 in 1994 as a sports commentator he went on to front the multi-award winning program The Footy Show.  He is also known for his devotion and passion as President of the Collingwood Football Club, he is a best-selling author and compere of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?' 

Eddie's association with Lexus of Blackburn has been a longstanding and mutually successful one.  From opening the dealership back in 2005, through to today, Eddie and Collingwood have been a constant presence at Lexus of Blackburn, one that we are proud to continue.

Ricky Ponting

As Australia's leading run-scorer in Test and ODI cricket with over 13,000 test runs alone, and one of Australia's most successful captains of all time, Cricket Legend Ricky Ponting certainly does not need any introduction. Not only is Ricky one of Australia's favourite sporting hero's, he and his wife Rihanna established the Ponting Foundation which raises money for research into childhood cancer and in the past 10 years has raised more than $10M. We are honoured to have Ricky Ponting as a Lexus of Blackburn partner.

Dannii Minogue

International television personality, fashion designer, singing superstar, author of 'My Story' and 'My Style', Charity Ambassador and proud Mum of Ethan Edward Smith, Dannii Minogue is certainly an example of an Australian woman with substance. Throughout her long standing career, Dannii has achieved excellence in everything she has put her hand to and we are thrilled to welcome Dannii as a Lexus of Blackburn Ambassador. 

'I like quality and simplicity. My Lexus RX 450h keeps me moving in style with all my work and mummy duties. I love the economy of the Hybrid - I am a self-professed 'rev-head' and even though I love the smell of petrol, I am delighted to not have to re-fill the tank so often. The boot is generous and always accommodating a pram, baby bags and a random balloon!'

Giaan Rooney

With her trademark million-dollar smile and an Olympic Gold Medal and World Record to her name, Giaan Rooney has had a fantastic career. 

But it has been out of the pool that Giaan's commitment to charity and her continuous pursuit to help those less fortunate (both two and four legged!) that drew our attention to Giaan. We discovered exactly how extraordinary a person she really is.  Giaan is a regular visitor to the dealership and is also the voice of our radio advertisements on 3AW. 

'My job takes me all over the diverse state of Victoria so it is a plus that I love driving! I feel especially privileged to be able to drive a Lexus from the wonderful team at Lexus of Blackburn as my safety and comfort are never compromised, all while looking incredibly stylish at the same time.'

Luke Darcy

Luke Darcy played over 200 games for the Western Bulldogs, following in the footsteps of his father David.  Luke made his debut in 1994 and emerged as one of the AFL's leading ruckman, winning the Bulldog's best and fairest award in 2001 before gaining All-Australian selection and winning the AFLPA MVP award in 2002.

Today Luke is a well-respected commentator across TV, joining the Seven Network in 2012 and Luke was hand-picked to be a part of Triple M's program Hot Breakfast, working alongside fellow Lexus of Blackburn Ambassador Eddie McGuire.
