About Our Founder

Craig Simms, M.P.H., is a professional coach who attributes his success to more than 30 years in leadership roles in traditional, biotech, and start-up pharmaceutical venues. He holds a B.A. in chemistry and microbiology from Miami University in Oxford, OH and a master’s degree in public health from Walden University.

Craig has found himself at a crossroads more than once in his career. He has weathered through start-ups, reorganizations, and downsizing. Despite challenges, he managed to recreate his career - twice. Craig now coaches CEOs, executives, and professionals who wish to take their career to the next level, pursue a different career, or raise team performance.

Because Craig has spent nearly three decades in sales, marketing, and medical affairs roles for multimillion-dollar brands and start-ups, he understands what drives novel product launches, positive Wall Street reviews, and personal transformation. He believes that the secret to success is not by doing things the way others have done them but by connecting with the passion of the people you are leading and by showing them that you care. 

Craig has had the benefit of leading established teams and creating new teams with talent from outside industry. These high-performing teams and individuals have been recognized with awards for teamwork, outstanding performance, and implementation expertise. In the past, he has helped others achieve their personal and professional goals, and he now shares these skills with multiple individuals and industries.

Craig has worked in a leadership capacity at highly regarded biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, including Astellas Pharma, CV Therapeutics, Syneos Health, COR Therapeutics Inc., Forest Laboratories, Boehringer Mannheim Therapeutics, and Eli Lilly and Company. In addition to selling blockbuster products, launching novel therapeutics, and leading national field teams, Craig is a member of the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and a certified professional speaker, coach, and trainer with the John Maxwell Team.
