Simpatico Studios began in 2011 as a freelance web design and digital marketing consultancy, with founding partners Jill and Steve Whiskeyman at the helm. Our partners parlayed their years of work in consumer packaged goods, publishing, journalism, broadcast and telecommunications into big results for a modest client roster. A few bite-size small business marketing projects became enterprise-level, B2B marketing engagements. Soon, the work was enough to demand full-time attention, and in the little town of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Simpatico Studios was born.
In the years since, Simpatico Studios has scaled to a steady dozen roles—plus a formidable and skilled subcontractor network—and evolved from a digital agency into a full-service Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) agency. Today, we proudly serve B2B clients of all sizes, and at virtually all stages, around the corner from our central Bucks County, Pennsylvania headquarters and around the world, as far as Eastern Europe and Singapore. Our founding partners remain at Mission Control, and have steered the studio to consecutive record-setting years.
We specialize in niche segments of six key B2B verticals:
- Healthcare: Life Sciences & Medical Practices
- Education: Special Needs & Early Childhood
- Manufacturing: B2B, Industrial & Consumer Goods
- Finance: Private Equity, Insurance, CFP® & RIAs
- Real Estate: Investment, Commercial & Residential
- Consulting: Independent Advisors, Corporate Coaches & Team Builders
We’re most proud of the people-centric business we’ve built—and we can’t wait to put our good people to work for you.
