Sara Hannah

Managing Partner

What motivates you?
I am motived by new ideas, flawless execution and thinking of better ways to do what we’ve always done.
What is your hope for the Leadership Institute?
It’s personal. When my two young boys are ready to make a career choice for themselves, I want them to have many great choices. I want them to work for an organization that values their unique gifts and talents, recognizes them for their contributions and provides an inspiring environment that brings out their best. I work every day to make the world they will be a part of better.
Who inspires you and why?
My parents. They gave me a childhood filled with love, challenge, adventure and learning. My Dad taught me to work hard, do it right the first time, take care of others and never to climb up a mountain that you can’t get back down from. My Mom taught me to assume people are good, have patience, extend empathy, and the importance of being interested rather than interesting.
What makes Barry-Wehmiller a fulfilling place to work?
I have had the good fortune to work on a team where I am trusted, with people who challenge me, working on projects that have the power to transform people’s lives.

What's your #1 bucket list item?
What three things do you like the most?
