Melissa Simon : Sr. Account Director

Melissa started her media career over 11 years ago in the corporate trade industry as a Media Buyer, buying both National Television and Spot Television. After developing stellar negotiating skills and a passion for media reporting, Melissa transitioned to the client side at both Toys R Us, Inc. and The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company. Learning this side of the media business gave her the knowledge and experience to understand the ever-changing needs of the client upon returning to the corporate barter industry in 2016. As the liaison between clients and Sherwood’s internal teams, Melissa uses her superior analytical skills and client centric mindset to ensure the media buying and stewardship processes are kept on track and campaign goals are exceeded.

As Bergen County’s newest resident, Melissa lives in River Vale with her husband, Drew. When she’s not shopping at Pottery Barn, Melissa can be found spending time with her large, extended family or traveling the world and exploring every tourist attraction there is.
