Tom Simons


Tom graduated from Harvard College in 1975 (with an honors degree in Visual and Environmental Studies), educated far beyond his actual intellect. His advertising career began with his hire at Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopulos as a "potentially useful person."

In 1989, Tom launched PARTNERS+simons, now the largest healthcare/financial services-focused advertising and marketing services firm in New England. In 2012 PARTNERS+simons received an investment from Baird Capital Partners.

Decorated for his art direction and creative direction for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Benetton, PC WEEK, Staples, Charles Schwab & Company and New Balance Athletic Shoe among others, Tom was named to New England ADWEEK's 1992 and 1994.

On the business side of things, Tom's success with the "Hollywood Model" has attracted the attention of regional and national media, resulting in an appearance on the cover of Inc. Magazine and in the Wall Street Journal. He has published articles in The Boston Business Journal, The Advertiser and Inc Magazine.  

Tom serves as Chair of the Board at Mount Auburn Hospital, a Harvard teaching hospital in Cambridge, MA. He is a past Chair of The Ad Club Board, a former Board member of MIMC, as well as The Home For Little Wanderers.
