GIVE ME A BEAT: Puma has appointed U.K. rap star Professor Green as its first social ambassador and will feature him in "press, retail and social media campaigns." Green, whose deal with Puma runs through '11, is the "latest in a string of high-profile individuals from the music world who have signed up to represent the brand." In January, Puma signed singer Kimberley Walsh "to front a six month press campaign for its BodyTrain toning footwear range." The brand "followed that in February with the signing of reggae icon Bob Marley's fashion-designer daughter, Cedella Marley, to design the Jamaican track and field team's kit" for the '12 London Olympics (BRANDREPUBLIC.com, 3/23).
