Zion & Zion Expands Media Team With Three Senior Hires

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwire - Dec 1, 2011) - Zion & Zion today announces the continued expansion of its team in the area of integrated traditional and online media research, planning, buying and performance measurement, with three senior hires. The new team members will all work across both traditional media, including: broadcast, print and outdoor; as well as digital media in order to create high ROI, multichannel campaigns for Zion & Zion's clients.

Zion & Zion continues to maintain a flat management structure which will allow these new team members to immediately begin to interact with Zion & Zion's Creative, Interactive, Content Strategy, Public Relations and Social Media teams to cost-effectively and quickly create truly integrated solutions for clients. This approach to management structure and the aggressive levels of investment Zion & Zion makes in its team members through training and conferences are key to Zion & Zion maintaining its current position as the top ranked Advertising Agency, Social Media Agency, Public Relations Firm, and Online Marketing Firm in Arizona (references below).

Zion & Zion CEO Aric Zion (@ariczion) stated, "I'm continually excited, as are our team members by the ongoing month-over-month growth of Zion & Zion. That has allowed us to make investments in people, technology and training. And now, we welcome three new people to the growing Zion & Zion team to move us even farther forward with respect to integrated media research, planning, buying and performance measurement. It's the 'integrated' part and the 'measurement' part that are the true differentiators for us."

TJ Clark joins Zion & Zion's integrated media planning and buying team with a background that includes experience with MMG as the senior planner/buyer on the Starwood, Colorado Tourism Office and Missouri Department of Tourism accounts. TJ also served as Saatchi & Saatchi's lead media strategist on the $50 million Toyota dealerships account. TJ holds a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Kansas.

Laura Angst joins Zion & Zion's integrated media team, bringing with her deep experience in online marketing and a resume that includes responsibility for all online marketing for O'Reilly Auto Parts, with over 3700 stores across 39 states. Laura holds a B.S. in marketing with a minor in economics and an M.B.A. from Missouri State University.

Steven Stallone joins Zion & Zion's integrated media team, bringing with him extensive experience in results measurement and campaign results analysis. Steven's background includes his most recent position with Morgan Stanley where he was responsible for data analysis and reporting.
