Sarah Bell, LEED GA
Marketing Director and Principal at Hacker
Sarah has been with Hacker since 2001. Her career in marketing for the architecture industry grew out of a passion for architecture but an early realization that she does not possess enough left-brain talent to be a good architect. As Marketing Director, Sarah is a tenacious advocate for evolving the firm while honoring its origins. In her role she develops and supports the firm’s marketing strategies and facilitates business development activities. This obliges her to wear many hats – writer, planner, (arm-chair) graphic designer, researcher, coach, disciple, and mentor. Her belief in Hacker’s work, values, and people is the driving inspiration for all her business activities.
