DonSage-webHarvest House Publishers has announced the hiring of Don Sage as the company’s new manager of financial operations. Sage began his tenure with the company Oct. 13.

As an accomplished MBA with several years of financial management experience, Sage steps into an important role for Harvest House. As manager of financial operations, he will provide overall leadership, vision, logistical and budgetary analysis and planning for the company’s accounting/finance department. In addition, he will be responsible for financial and risk management for the company and its related entities, including cash management, budgeting, accounting functions, and financial statement preparation and analytics. 

Before accepting his new position, Sage managed the business operations for Ekklesia Eugene, a rapidly growing church in the Willamette Valley. Sage brought to Ekklesia, and now Harvest House, a strong financial background after earning his Bachelor of Arts in economics from Stanford University and a Master of Business Administration from the University of California, Davis.

“I am very excited to join the Harvest House family,” Sage said. “Harvest House products have had an amazing impact on so many over the past 40 years, and a part of the company’s success is a strong commitment to financial stewardship and a finance team committed to excellence.  I look forward to positively contributing to our finance team and ensuring many more can experience the benefits of Harvest House’s incredible products.”

Harvest House President Bob Hawkins is “very pleased” to have Sage on board.

“In the current fiscal environment, it is evident that a company must establish a strong financial strategy,” Hawkins said. “Don is the right person at the right time for our house. With his financial acumen, he will undoubtedly play an important role, minimizing risks to Harvest House and establishing an even stronger financial position for the company as we move forward into the future.”
