Rob Simons Portrait

I have over 20 years of experience integrating technology into marketing, branding and publishing environments. I am constantly seeking new ways to facilitate business efficiencies in communication processes through improved customer relationship management, project management and creativity. My technical expertise in the communications industry has allowed me to quickly and competitively position clients effectively within the Internet landscape.

After graduating from Auburn University with an Economics degree, I started my career as a consultant in the publishing industry. As a pioneer in the desktop publishing revolution, I was instrumental in producing one of the first major direct mail catalogs produced entirely on a Macintosh. Over the years, my clients have included Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain, Haas Publishing Corp, USAA, Harland Clarke, LibreDigital, Fidelity Institutional Wealth Services, Dow Jones Company, Rush Enterprises, San Antonio Museum of Art and the AT&T Cotton Bowl.

In 1996, I founded Toolbox Studios, Inc., a communication design firm. It has grown to one of the largest creative firms in San Antonio and has received national awards for work in the areas of youth marketing, food and beverage, financial services and corporate branding. The firm operates using a proprietary project management system that allows the design team more time to focus on creative solutions for clients. Toolbox was selected by Goldline Research as one of the “Top 10 Most Dependable Web Design Firms of Texas.”

I am active in the community and has served as President of the San Antonio chapter of the Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO). I am currently Area Director-Elect for the Texas Area of EO. I was selected in 2007 to the San Antonio Business Journal’s “40 Under 40.” I have served on the board of directors for the Communication Arts Society of San Antonio, the Downtown Alliance of San Antonio, the Downtown Residents Association and the host committee for the USGA’s 2001 US Junior Amateur at Oak Hill’s Country Club. I enjoy traveling, cooking, golfing, boating and photography.
