We are Boston’s uncommon combination of strategy, creativity and technology.

Partners & Simons is Now MERGE Boston

Back in 1989, on a barren stretch of Boston waterfront overlooking a working drydock, Tom Simons launched a radically different marketing agency with ideas far ahead of their time. Today, this area is the heart of Boston’s Seaport Innovation District. And we’re continuing our history of innovation as MERGE Boston.
