THE SAGE STORY

The Sage Group was founded as Sage Consulting Associates in 2003 by Cara France & her business partner. Both had experience leading marketing and business teams at a variety of San Francisco Bay Area companies. Having served “on both sides of the fence” as hiring managers and as consultants, they set out to create an agency that could deliver on what they had wanted  – to provide the talent that helps marketers achieve their goals and to connect consultants & permanent talent with great career opportunities.

With no experience in HR but a deep awareness of the importance of consultants who “fit”, they focused on the tangibles & the intangibles. Not only the right skills, experience and background but the intangibles that make all the difference. Do you need a consensus builder? An evangelist? A driver? A herder of cats? No two projects are exactly the same and asking good questions is just the beginning. Ultimately, Sage strives to find that “perfect fit” and there are no better words than “Jane/Joe is knocking it out of the ballpark! She/he’s making my life so much easier.”

 

The discipline of marketing has changed drastically. To meet the needs of marketers in today’s transforming landscape, we created Marketers that Matter® (MTM) to provide a platform for Bay Area marketing executives to connect, honor, and learn from each other. In partnership with The Wall Street Journal, we celebrate and learn from marketers at the forefront through private events, an annual award, HBR articles, our membership program and more.

Twelve years after its start, The Sage Group continues to match the Bay Area’s best consultants, contractors and full-time talent with the dynamic needs of large and growing companies across the Bay Area. And, we’ve expanded with a community that learns from, honors, and connects top Bay Area marketers.

We’ve grown from a 2-person company to one of the largest women-owned businesses in the Bay Area with our founder and CEO, Cara France, and our COO, Chris Yelton, at the helm. At The Sage Group it’s not just about what we do, but how we do it and who we are in the process.
