Gage, a Minneapolis-based behavioral marketing agency, announced today it has added three new employees to its growing team. Isaac Sorensen has joined the agency as senior engagement coordinator, while Firoz Ahmed and Griffin Talbot have been added as senior developers.

Isaac Sorensen has been hired as senior engagement coordinator on the Marketing Bridge team. He will help manage client relationships, communications and projects for a wide variety of accounts, including Time Warner Cable Business Class, Hyland Software and Norwegian Cruise Lines. Prior to joining Gage, Sorensen was the public relations and social media account manager at Go Buy Local, a multi-channel marketing start-up, where he managed internal and client marketing and PR strategies.

Joining the technology team as a senior developer is Firoz Ahmed. Ahmed is a Microsoft Certified Application Developer, and will focus much of his time developing and maintaining applications for Microsoft ExpertZone. Ahmed comes to Gage from Bluestem Brands, Inc., where he developed and maintained software solutions for multiple clients. He was also responsible for architecting, designing and developing all major applications related to the PayCheck Direct brand within BlueStem Brands.

Gage has also added Griffin Talbot as a senior developer. Talbot brings 10 years of web development experience to his new role, where he will be tasked with maintaining websites for clients such as SmartHQ, UHC Specialty RX and AMEX Travel. Previously, Talbot was a web developer at Three Deep Marketing, where his client roster included Wonka and Carmex.

“Our business is built upon the needs of our clients, and the only way we can achieve that success is by bringing in the best possible talent in the industry,” said Tom Belle, president and CEO of Gage. “The addition of these three talented people further expands our capabilities and makes sure the needs of our clients stay our number-one priority.”
