Christine Simeone

Executive Vice President
 

Christine has been a strategic communications and marketing consultant for more than 20 years. Since joining LPP in 1994, Christine has led successful corporate positioning initiatives, thought leadership and competitive response programs, and company and product introductions for emerging companies, large global publicly-held brands and everything in between. She regularly counsels companies and the C-suite regarding major financial events and crises, as well as mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, and earnings and partners with Lois Paul to coach executive spokespeople.

Despite her self-proclaimed “inner geek,” Christine has used her understanding of the jargon-laden technology industry to help her clients tell their stories in plain English in a way that is compelling and conveys their value proposition in the context of broader market trends.  The leader of the Security and Telecommunications Practices at LPP, Christine can easily explain why the average person needs to care about cybersecurity and talk about the fact that telecom is not just plumbing, but the reason we can watch TV, pay bills or work from anywhere on our mobile devices.

Christine brings an understanding of a wide range of technologies and market segments, including IT infrastructure, data and analytics, mobility, cloud, security, and managed and professional services. She has guided her clients in adapting their messages to a variety of stakeholders and to capture opportunities in vertical markets, including healthcare, manufacturing, education and retail. Christine has also helped her clients implement global PR programs.

3Com, Allscripts, Arbor Networks, General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions, Nokia, NuoDB, Polycom, Presidio, Sonus Networks and Tekelec are just few of Christine’s current and former clients. She also led LPP’s eight-year engagement with Nortel, between 1999 and 2007.

Christine is a past recipient of the John D. Graham Award for Excellence, which was awarded based on selection by her peers at LPP and FH for her personal standard of excellence.

Prior to joining LPP, Christine was marketing communications manager at Easel Corporation, an application development tools company, with responsibility for lead generation, public relations, advertising, events and collateral.

Christine holds a B.A. in Communications Studies from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She pursued postgraduate coursework at Simmons College in investor relations and involvement with the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI) Boston chapter – of which she is currently a member of the Board of Directors – to add financial communications to her arsenal of communications skills.
