Marla Simon was born in New York and moved to Los Angeles with her family at an early age. She is a graduate of UCLA who turned an internship at Columbia Records into a 20+ year career, rising to the position of Vice President of International Sales and Marketing for Sony Music in New York City.
Marla spent her entire career in marketing, often touring the world visiting local markets with some of the most recognizable artists in history – Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Ozzy Osbourne, Hall & Oates, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Gloria Estafan, Cyndi Lauper, among many others.
In the world of international marketing, Marla learned to quickly size-up a market and determine the optimal method of reaching audiences with a message tailored to the local population. She is a true professional marketer who understands that you must look beyond demographics to understand purchase behavior. Music marketing is about lifestyle and psychographics and so are homes.
Marla is a social media expert, adept at leveraging the key properties of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn as marketing vehicles.
As a member of the Georgian Peaks Ski Club, she is past chair of “Ladies Day,” the largest private club event on the escarpment. She is a volunteer with the local Special Olympics group. Marla is an avid skier, loves to hike, bike, do yoga and looks forward to stand-up paddle boarding in the summer months.
