Shaun Simms

Sr. Director and Chief of Staff

Over the past 20 years, I've spent the majority of my career in Fortune 500 companies, building and leading teams, and leading multi-million dollar projects. As I did so, I found myself drawn to the service arms of the organizations I worked in and even made it a goal to move to nonprofit leadership by 2030. But, God has a sense of humor, and His plans are different (and better) than my own.


I was drawn to LOVEtheLOU by the community I saw. Black, white, brown, city, county, and country all come together in love, serving and listening to one another. This proximity to one another blasted through barriers - a beautiful display of what is possible if we choose faith over fear.


I have some certifications (PMP, CX, CSSGB, SAFe SA 5.0, PMO-CP, OKR Certified Coach, Christian Apologetics), have won some awards (STL Project Manager of the Year, Supply Chain Champion, PBM Integration Award, STL Project of the Year x2), and I have a wonderful family (Melle, Caleb, Joshua, Levi, foster kiddos, and a fun dog named Padfoot).
