Ashley Schutz brings over 18 years of marketing and advertising experience to Wealth Matters Consulting. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, her passion for communications was ignited when she spent her senior year interning in Manhattan at one of the world’s largest advertising agencies. In her early career, Ashley worked in account management at several boutique advertising firms, serving as the liaison between the client and the creative team. Managing clients such as BellSouth, General Motors, and regional retailers in the Southeast provided exposure to strategic planning and brand management, all forms of traditional media, and the growing space of digital advertising. In 2006, Ashley shifted to the client side when she joined Regions Bank as the Marketing Manager overseeing the Palm Beach, Broward, Naples and Ft. Myers markets. In this role, she supported over 50 retail branches in addition to business banking, corporate banking, private banking, investments, and mortgage departments. An active community volunteer, Ashley served as President of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches from 2014-2015.
