Sarah Holliman

Sarah is a seasoned leader who has spent most of her career triangulated around the professional services industry, helping individuals and companies overcome obstacles, powerfully tell their stories, and solve complex issues. Before joining Trium, Sarah was the CMO of SIG, a membership organization, and all of its subsidiary companies, including Future of Sourcing, a digital publication where she was managing editor, and SIG University, an online university where she served as faculty. Sarah started her marketing career at A.T. Kearney, where she ran the marketing for one of the business units. Prior to that, she served as a manager in A.T. Kearney’s financial institutions group, which was a natural progression from her early years as a banker at NationsBank (now Bank of America). Sarah has an MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA and a BA from Furman University. As a mother of four, she is passionate about issues surrounding women, children, and education, and serves on numerous related boards. Outside of work and volunteering, Sarah loves traveling, spending time with family and friends, and accidentally singing as part of an occasional classic rock cover band.
