Nancy Sims

Senior Vice President


Nancy is a native Texan, with deeply rooted relationships across the state. In fact, it is rare to go anywhere in Houston with Nancy or mention her name, where someone doesn’t know her.  Nancy is a straight-shooter and always calls it as she sees it.

Leading our public affairs practice, Nancy leverages her strategic instincts to guide clients from energy companies to top retailers on reputation management, crisis communications, civic engagement, government relations, stakeholder communications and more. Before joining Pierpont she owned her own public affairs and political consulting firm where she represented a wide range of businesses and advised campaigns for many of Texas’ leading political figures. Next time you’re with her and want to hear a good story or two, just ask her. She will have you laughing while sharing pearls of wisdom.

Nancy practices what she preaches, by serving on various Boards and Advisory Boards, including Crime Stoppers Houston, Houston BoyChoir, SEARCH Homeless Coalition and Da Camera. A recognized and trained leader, she is a graduate of American Leadership Forum, Center for Houston’s Future and Leadership Houston.

And to top it all off, when she isn’t at City Hall or on the energy road, she is an Adjunct Professor of Political Science at the University of Houston where she is “teaching the next generation of operatives.”
