  • Special Olympics Southern California relies heavily on Sarah Agee and Sterling Search to fill key strategic positions.  Many non-profits fail to utilize search firms to avoid what might be considered an unnecessary cost.  Sarah dissuades this argument by providing excellent, thorough research at an extremely affordable price… and it nearly always leads to the perfect candidate to fill the job.  Sarah and Sterling have been invaluable to SOSC’s success over the past decade.
    Bill Shumard, President/CEO, Special Olympics Southern California
  • As far as I’m concerned, Sarah Agee is one of the best in her business!!! Her ability to funnel down information on both sides of the table to make not just a good match, but the right one is incredible. Sarah has a genuine passion for non-profits. It’s not just a job for her, but rather a personal commitment to authentically engage the community. If she feels a match isn’t a good one, on either side of the table, she’s not afraid to say it. I’ve known Sarah for a long time, both as a candidate and a client, and I totally trust her judgment and integrity.
    Stephanie McCormick, President/CEO, Make A Wish Foundation® Orange County and the Inland Empire
  • Sarah Agee’s ability to outline and engage everyone in the process, in a fully collaborative way, was fantastic. She was able to streamline and clarify the procedure while establishing benchmarks and defining each of our roles in the process. Sarah’s engaging personality, and her optimistic and positive approach to what could have been a very daunting task made a very positive impact on everyone involved in the process. We were thrilled with the result. Would I recommend her to someone else? Absolutely!
