By Erik Oster 

Zimmerman Advertising appointed Jim Heidelberg as its new chief client officer.

Heidelberg joins the agency from Heidelberg PR, where he has served as a business consultant for brands including Michaels, Office Depot, Ulta Beauty and J Parts for over nine years. Prior to that, he spent nearly twelve years with Accenture as a retail industry consultant, working with such brands as eBay, Toys “R” Us, JC Penney, Best Buy, Anheuser-Busch and AutoNation. 

“True to our mission, Jim’s sole remit is to help grow retail brands,” said Zimmerman Advertising CEO Michael Goldberg. “One of the most attractive facets of his hire is that he comes [with] no traditional agency experience, so there is no typical agency deprogramming necessary.”


“Jim’s competitive spirit and tenacious ability to solve retail problems is what will make us continue our evolution and become an even better organization,” added Zimmerman Advertising founder and chairman Jordan Zimmerman.
