Founded in 1990 as a technology firm, Sapient has grown into a global company with 7,052 employees, more than 300 of whom are based in Boston.
Over the last few years, Sapient has been aggressively growing its traditional advertising reputation and capabilities. Now, just as major brands are intent on launching more ambitious digital and Internet campaigns, the company's core technology roots are serving it well.
"It's getting harder and harder to separate advertising and marketing from technology," said Chris Davey, who runs Sapient's Boston office.
