Business development is more consultative than it’s ever been, requiring the resilience, vision and passion of a true entrepreneur.
Since his early filmmaking days of producing campaigns for Panasonic, Tanqueray and Pringles, to the founding of the innovative content agency Hiccup, Rob Simone’s entrepreneurial spirit was evident. Three years after the merging of Hiccup into full-service agency DRUM, Simone serves as Chief Development Officer of the 170-person firm. It takes gumption and ambition to cultivate and grow a company — and alongside Rob’s innate ability to lead, his team’s consultative approach builds valuable solutions and assembles talented experts for today’s leading brands.
Outside of the office, Rob enjoys cooking big Sunday meals with his wife and three children on Long Island.
