Abstract: Developing successful rebranding strategies allows the companies to remain competitive and to realise their objectives. Yet in spite of being widely used in the market, there has been little research on the rebranding concept compared with the literature that has been elaborated on the brand concept. On the empirical level, a little interest has been given to the evaluation of consumer perceptions which is why the present research focuses on studying the impact of attitude towards rebranding on both brand personality and behavioural intention. An empirical study has been conducted on Tunisiana (a private telecommunication operator) following the disappearance of the trademark in favour of Ooredoo. Data collection has been conducted two months after the rebranding announcement on a sample of 180 consumers. The results of the study have shown the positive influence of attitude towards rebranding on brand personality and on behavioural intention. The study has particularly shown the positive influence of brand personality on behavioural intention especially in dimensions related to femininity, dynamism and strength.
