David Simpson has owned and operated Simpson
Associates, a management consulting group based in Vancouver,
British Columbia, for 34 years. Specializing in performance
assessment and high-end executive search, Simpson Associates
continues to grow, having recently opened offices both in
Victoria, British Columbia and Toronto, Ontario.
As of March 2015, Mr. Simpson, in addition to continuing to serve as Principal of Simpson Associates, became President & CEO of TAIS Performance Systems Inc. TPSI publishes and distributes The Attentional and Interpersonal Style inventory (TAIS) and other related products and services on a world-wide basis.
Part of the philosophy of being deeply involved in both companies is to ensure that the publishing company, TPSI, always stays close and connected to the end user customer. Because of its internal structure, TPSI is somewhat removed from end users. Continuing to be very active with Simpson Associates ensures that we never lose touch with the clientele.
Mr. Simpson graduated with a B.Sc. in Science (minor in Engineering) in 1977 from the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. He also holds an advanced license, obtained in 1991, to interpret TAIS. He is considered one of the foremost experts with the instrument in the world.
