The new team members will all work across a variety of functions on interactive development and integrated campaigns for Zion & Zion clients.

A key strength for us is that our clients need not sacrifice expertise in one area to gain it in another. Combine that with the exceptional stable of talent that we have and our no-walls, no-hierarchy structure, and you get the differentiation and exceptional performance that has come to be associated with the Zion & Zion name."
