About Simpson & Partners

Who We Are

Established in Connecticut in 1980, Simpson & Partners today calls South Carolina home, with what many believe to be one of the world’s most beautiful and gracious cities, Charleston, as its base. Charleston has a world class port which ships, among other things, all the BMW’s made in the SC upstate. The area has become a technology and aerospace hub and more with companies like Boeing, Spawar, Blackbaud, Automated Trading Desk, Volvo, FloraLife and People Matter all having operations there. South Carolina also enjoys among the highest levels of foreign investment per capita  in the United States with over two hundred and fifty foreign companies such as Michelin, BMW and Bosch all recognizing the value of doing business here.

What We Do

We have completed assignments for clients from small businesses to industry giants whose names are recognized world-wide in the following areas:

  • Strategic planning, marketing and business  development
  • Technology assessment, acquisition and fulfillment
  • Legislative and regulatory insights
  • Due diligence, venture planning and implementation
  • Environmental sustainability and stewardship
  • Executive coaching and succession planning
  • Cause marketing and not-for-profit initiatives
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

How We Do It

Over time, S&P has combined traditional business practices with an emphasis on infusing client organizations with a true marketing spirit and entrepreneurial energy.  Continuous research and monitoring of contextual factors such as social and policy trends  minimize the occurrence of “unintended consequences” 

S&P has developed proprietary approaches to solving problems and creating opportunities for growth including our Custom Think Tank, Innovation Pipeline, and more.

Our breadth of experience across multiple industries has informed these approaches, and taught us that immersion in a single industry or technology can create self-imposed limitations and give rise to the dangers of “that’s not how it’s done”. The non-linear, expansive thinking of our proprietary work is the best antidote for such tunnel vision.

Importantly, we recognize that your company is unique, so what we deliver is first, a customized response to the challenges you face, and then, the tools and training for you — your people, your resources, and your culture — to own and use new skills after we have gone. We know that as appealing as trendy answers may seem, relying on the current boilerplate cannot gain you the competitive advantage you need, so our approach is not only to help you to be “better than” but also to differentiate you — to help you adopt a leadership mindset, not a “me, too” posture.
