SMZ welcomes new account manager


Jamie Michelson, president of SMZ (Simons Michelson Zieve Advertising Inc.), announced the hiring of Ashley Rooney at the Troy-based agency.

Rooney has rejoined the SMZ team as an account manager working on the Michigan Lottery and Taubman accounts. She received a Bachelor of Business Administration with a triple major in Advertising, Marketing, and Management at Northwood University. Rooney interned with SMZ and client SVS Vision as a social media coordinator. Upon graduation she was hired in as an assistant account manager. Rooney left to take her talents to McCann Erickson on the ALDI account and SMZ is now happy to announce her return.

When not working, Rooney enjoys bargain hunting and figuring out just how many toppings one salad can handle. Her summers are filled with the Detroit Tigers and her winters with the Detroit Red Wings.
