In 1997, a designer, a programmer and an accountant realized they had the makings of a great company. Mike Duncan, Mike Kujawski and Ron Staton formed Sage Island and began producing a new level of software design for customers in Wilmington, NC. Their company has its foundation in software application development, serving high-profile government sector clients including OSHA. The agency quickly expanded into commercial web design and eventually full-service marketing. Today, Sage Island has built a powerful reputation through award winning designs, brand strategy, and Internet marketing services, including search engine optimization and pay-per-click advertising. Using a fully integrated approach, the agency combines interactive and traditional marketing services to successfully increase visibility for local businesses as well as Fortune 500 companies, both nationally and internationally.
A lifelong supporter of UNCW academics, Mike Duncan is currently a member of the Information Systems/Computer Science Advisory Board and is involved with Wilmington Area IT Professionals and UNCW Business Week.
