Sarah Throne

Chief Strategy Officer

Stream Companies

Location: West Chester, PA

Founded: 1996

Industry: Marketing & Advertising

Sarah Throne is approaching her 10th year with Stream Companies. She started her journey with the company as an inbound marketing manager and grew to take on building the digital strategy and initiatives for the company as director, executive director, vice president and now chief strategy officer.

Stream Companies operates as a full-service, tech-enabled advertising agency. Leveraging over 25 years of experience in advertising and digital marketing, the company uses a data-driven approach to deliver retail traffic to businesses across the United States, fueled by a team of 450 associates.

“Over the last 10 years, Throne became synonymous both within her company and in the marketing and local Philadelphia communities with the impressive digital advertising capabilities of Stream Companies,” the company said. While many agencies were contracting out digital tactics or just doing enough digital advertising to keep clients happy, Throne was building a powerful engine that catapulted her company into best-in-class lists.

Throne now oversees the integrated media team with over 204 team members. “Outside of the impressive results and reputation Sarah has built for the company, her achievements in leadership almost surpass the very tangible results she has brought in revenue, growth and client success,” her team said. “Sarah has invested significantly into creating experts and leaders within the company through mentorship and developing directors and vice presidents from this mentorship.

“Sarah is also a champion for women and her efforts have directly contributed to the company having more than 50% women in leadership. She has been a driving force of innovation within the organization that has earned incredible results for clients and accolades for the company, like (being named an)Inc. 5000 fastest-growing company an astonishing 16 times, which only seven companies have earned.”

Stream is a top Philadelphia employer with over 500 associates and has earned Cigna top health awards along with Healthiest Employer and Best places to work, all within the Philadelphia region. Stream Companies has also had 26 years of consecutive growth.

“The most important risk I took was accepting positions where I didn’t feel 100% confident in every responsibility within the job,” Throne said. “Despite this uncertainty, I had unwavering confidence in my ability to grow within the role. By embracing this challenge, I pushed myself beyond my comfort zone, taking on unfamiliar tasks and expanding my skill set. This risk allowed me to develop a deeper understanding of various aspects of the business, broadening my perspective and enhancing my leadership abilities. It was a transformative experience that taught me the value of stepping into the unknown and embracing opportunities for growth.”
