Candice Simons

Since returning to Detroit in 2013, Simons and Brooklyn Outdoor have been making waves in the OOH industry. After years of tenure spent in Chicago, Simons recognized a gap in the industry that could be filled by an energetic take on traditional OOH representation. She foresaw the void Brooklyn Outdoor would fill by providing unmatched specialization in national sales for independent OOH vendors nationwide.

The core services of Brooklyn Outdoor are as follows: traditional and digital billboards, large format wallscapes, hand-painted murals, transit advertising, street furniture, and experiential marketing. With sales representation in Detroit, Los Angeles, and Chicago the company has subsequently emerged as a regional and national force. Simons and her team are adept at thinking outside of the board, providing opportunities in places that they didn’t previously exist, helping clients explore exciting new creative possibilities.

Brooklyn Outdoor is about easy efficient delivery, providing clients with a quick, seamless experience. As BK’s fearless leader, Simons has selected inventory that is chosen by quality not quantity. She designed Brooklyn Outdoor to provide boutique style billboard inventory by offering highly sought-after locations over mass production.

At the core of Brooklyn Outdoor is a culture of distinction unlike any other in the business. The Brooklyn Outdoor Team and Simons have been recognized time and time again by the following: 2019 OAAA Hall of Fame “Rising Star Award” and Silver Obie award winner, 2019 Ad Age Best Places to work, Inc. Magazine’s “Inc 5000” encompassing the fastest growing and most inspiring companies of 2018, Crain’s Business “40 under 40”, Crain’s Business Notable Woman in Marketing, D Business “30 in their thirties”, Stevie Award winning “Women in Business”, Michigan Celebrates Small Business “50 Companies to Watch”, Detroit Young Professionals Vanguard Award, multiple Summit International Marketing and Creative Awards, Michigan Economic Bright Spot Award, Corp!
