MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2013) - Sage Communications, a leading full-service marketing communications and public relations firm based in the D.C. Metro area, hired Christi Rich as Director of Events. In her role, Ms. Rich will lead the event management division, which offers a full spectrum of event marketing services -- strategic planning, design and execution -- to Sage's current and future clients. 

"Even in this digital era, nothing can replace the value of personal engagement and meaningful customer experiences for growing and sustaining business relationships," said David Gorodetski, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Sage Communications. "Regardless of size or complexity, Ms. Rich is known for seamlessly coordinated and managed events that deliver memorable and rewarding experiences for her clients.

Guest lists for these events have included members of the current Administration, members of Congress, international heads of state, and royalty -- all requiring an extensive knowledge of protocol.
