Media Experts will take over the account on July 1. "We look forward to developing a new long-term partnership with Media Experts during what will be a significant phase of development for the Michael Hill business over the next decade," said Sue Szylvester, group marketing executive at Michael Hill International. "We were impressed with Media Experts' digital strength, their refreshing approach to engaging consumers and their considerable track record in the retail category. We felt great chemistry between us during the review process and we look forward to working together to grow our business in Canada."
