Steve Simkus

Steve Simkus

A senior Marketing & Communications leader, “change” has been a consistent element of my track record. I have excelled in taking on pilot projects, stepping up to lead new initiatives, promoting innovation and out-of-the-box thinking, and creatively solving problems in support of the goals of the business. I’m a natural leader who has consistently displayed my entrepreneurial streak, whether working for others or for myself. Working in both B2B and B2C environments, I am experienced in technical services, not-for-profit, retail, apparel, consumer products and I.T. I connect powerful brand stories with customer experiences that consistently deliver on brand promise. I’m data driven with a strong creative instinct and move easily between the two to develop strategies and programs that build brands and drive results. We should talk.
