Zack Simone '03
Zack Simone, born in Calgary, grew up in Saudi Arabia, Cyprus and India before landing at St. Georges. St. Georges propelled him into studying Advertising and Graphic Design at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. A passion for marketing, advertising, and everything digital lead him to an internship at MuchMusic and MTV Canada that turned into an unforgettable work experience in the Brand Partnerships department. Working on everything from integrated commercials, experiential websites, compelling social programs and the MMVAs - each client helped the Channels push the boundaries of interacting with young Canadians. After 6 years at Much, an opportunity opened up in LA with FOX Broadcasting, and that's where Zack currently is working on innovative ways to engage digital viewers across a variety of platforms, specifically focusing on FOX NOW.
Mentoring is an important part of life. I've had it since my Georgian and university days; continuing it in my professional life. I believe you can learn from anyone and shared experiences build character on both sides. Every time I meet a Georgian, it's easy dialogue and I want to further the tradition of providing a robust network for all generations.
