Trinity Hunt’s Supreme Group Names Veteran Exec as CEO

Supreme Group was formed after Trinity Hunt Partners’ majority investment in Supreme Optimization, a life science-focused digital agency. New CEO Tom Donnelly was previously chief growth officer at Medical Knowledge Group.

Tom Donnelly has been appointed chief executive officer of Supreme Group, a platform company formed after Trinity Hunt Partners’ majority investment announced earlier this month in Supreme Optimization, a life science-focused digital agency providing best-in-class performance digital marketing services to the life science industry.

Supreme Group said it’s dedicated to providing best-in-class business and commercialization services to a broad range of life science and healthcare companies.

“Tom’s extensive experience leading and growing healthcare marketing and communications businesses makes him the ideal leader for Supreme Group,” Mike Steindorf, a partner at Dallas-based Trinity Hunt, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome Tom to the team and look forward to working with him to build a world-class platform serving a broad range of companies in life science and healthcare.”

Last year, Supreme Group acquired Clarity Quest, a health IT marketing agency.

The company said that Donnelly has more than 20 years of management experience in integrated healthcare marketing, advertising, and consulting.

Former chief growth officer at Medical Knowledge Group

Most recently, he was chief growth officer for Medical Knowledge Group LLC, a former portfolio company of Court Square Capital Partners and Aisling Capital, which was acquired by Novo Holdings A/S.

Donnelly also was chief revenue officer for Level Ex, a medical video game provider, where he oversaw pharmaceutical, biotech, and med device sales and partnerships, customer success, and revenue operations to drive growth.

During his nearly 11 years on the management team at Evoke, Donnelly helped grow the agency from less than 10 to more than 500 employees and helped lead nine-figure sales growth as the company’s global chief growth officer and president of North America.

Donnelly also was a vice president at imc2, where he led the New York and Philadelphia health and wellness practices.

“I’m excited to join Supreme Group and look forward to making an impact in this dynamic and growing space,” Donnelly said in a statement. “Already during my short time working with Trinity Hunt and the team at Supreme Optimization, we’ve made tremendous progress in building the Supreme Group platform.”

Supreme Group’s acquisitions to date include Supreme Optimization, a life science-focused digital agency, and Clarity Quest, a health IT marketing agency.

Trinity Hunt Partners is a growth-oriented private equity firm with more than $2 billion of assets under management focused on building leading business, healthcare, and consumer services companies.
