“What you do for your family, your friends, and your community is far more important than the title you carry. Making a personal difference brings really big rewards.” –Susan Hager

Whether that meant beginning a Head Start program in a small Eskimo village in Alaska or blazing the trail for women business owners, our founder, Susan Hager, devoted her professional and personal lives to helping others. Early on, she saw that marketing and communications were powerful tools for change.

“Make a difference” has been our core value since Susan and Marcia Sharp founded our firm in 1973—and the reason why Susan continued to lead the firm until she passed away in 2008.

While she is no longer with us, Susan’s commitment to meaningful change lives on in our culture, the work we do, and the clients we serve.

Her uncompromising desire to do well by doing good still defines us, more than 40 years after opening our doors. Our purpose-driven staff operates with an eye not on driving corporate profits or increasing sales figures, but on helping do things like fight disease, eradicate hunger, minimize vulnerability, and make sure quality education is both a priority and a possibility.

Today Hager Sharp’s employee owners continue to be driven by Susan’s passion: to use their professional skills to craft, create, and cultivate ideas that make a difference. One client, one campaign, one cause at a time.
