Simpson Associates got its start in the summer of 1984 as a small consulting firm specializing in retained executive search. The primary client focus was small to medium-sized, privately held companies that encompassed a diverse industry group.

It was rather obvious, even three decades ago, that client companies were working hard to improve their businesses. And if it was good enough for our clients to be diligently working on development and improvement, it was equally good enough for us. To that end, we introduced an advanced and sophisticated assessment capability to the search practice. It was a demonstrable way to move the practice forward. And clients responded with a resounding endorsement.

The original intent was to keep the business as almost a sole proprietorship. Then, a few years ago, the decision was made to redirect and specifically focus on growing the business substantially. To that end, we have enjoyed great success, in part due to the recent purchase of Enhanced Performance Systems, formerly a California-based company that specialized in publishing very high-end, performance-focused psychological tests — in fact, the very ones that had long been in use here at Simpson Associates. This was an important acquisition for the firm — one that will allow continued development on multiple levels of our thriving search practice.

“Getting It Done Right”

A prime centerpiece of the evolution of our search group has been that it has both the confidence and demonstrated capability to produce the desired result every time, without fail. It is a “tall order”, for sure. However, the expertise our group has in delivering a top-notch, successful search conclusion is unparalleled.
