What I’m Listening to Now

“With Acentech, I had an opportunity to market and develop business for one of the most well respected and unique consulting firms in the industry – an opportunity I couldn’t pass up! Each day is different, and I work with brilliant people who are truly passionate about their work. It makes my job that much more engaging and enjoyable.”

In her role as director of marketing and business development, Sarah McGillicuddy develops strategies, tools and tactics to expand Acentech’s business in its key markets. She leads the business development, marketing, advertising, and communications efforts of Acentech’s seven vertical market teams and three disciplines in the areas of architectural acoustics, audiovisual, information technology and security system design, and environmental noise and vibration. Sarah’s focus on collaborating with strategic partners has helped to expand and nurture the firm’s business contacts, while fostering valuable client relationships.

Get to know me

I greatly admire my parents, who each worked for 40 years in public education and ended their respective careers rich with professional fulfillment, lasting relationships, and plenty of time to enjoy life and travel the world. For myself, I am passionate about photography and enjoy watching the wildlife in my backyard. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 15 years. I love this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
