About

Hamilton, Ontario – 1991

Armed with a passion for advertising and a dedication to exceptional service, Gary and Randy Sims opened the doors of Sims Advertising on November 1, 1991.  With years of marketing experience between them, Gary and Randy created a company that operated with integrity, fostered long-lasting relationships, and would leave a legacy for their family.  They vowed to encourage open communication with their valued clients and build a strong foundation based on a commitment to being responsive, strategy-oriented and delivering a quality product.

These three pillars of service have allowed Sims to maintain a reputation for professionalism, excellence, and an inviting open-door atmosphere.  The growth in the advertising industry over the past 30+ years has been monumental. They have seen the advertising business evolve from hand-drawn ads to full-scale digital platforms. The Sims team continues to adapt and engage with innovative solutions that bring value to their clients.
