Caroline Santiago joins Sage as a senior account executive and Jonathan Smithwick as business development manager.

KENT, Ohio — Sage Integration announces it has named Caroline Santiago as a senior account executive and Jonathan Smithwick as business development manager to accommodate the company’s rapid expansion during the past year.

Santiago will develop new business, specializing in utility and petrochemical organizations while maintaining and growing existing business in Texas and all U.S. states east of the Mississippi River.

Jim Geyer, Sage Integration’s vice president, says increasing business from national and global clients made hiring an experienced project manager vital.

“Caroline’s chemical engineering, technology and sales backgrounds made her an ideal choice as a senior account executive working with high technology clients,” he notes. “We’re thrilled to have her join our team.”

Previously, Santiago was an account manager at Nichia America Corp., a U.S. subsidiary of the world’s leading manufacturer of optical semiconductors. She earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Florida State University, where she also served as an undergraduate research assistant. She will be based in Sage’s Atlanta office.

Smithwick brings more than 27 years of electronic security experience to his job as a business development manager. He previously held top sales and business development positions with Convergint Technologies and Stanley Security Solutions.

Smithwick completed Chemical Terrorism-vulnerability Information (CVI) authorized user training as part of standards overseen by the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and holds a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) issued by the Transportation Security Administration. He will be based in Houston.

“Jonathan has the training and experience to understand the specialized needs of our Fortune 100 clientele,” says Geyer. “His strong customer-centric approach is a major asset as we continue securing some of the country’s most demanding enterprise organizations.”

Over the summer, Sage opened its fourth national office in Knoxville, Tenn., citing an increased client base and demand for service in the area.
