Stan Sagner was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland to a very close-knit family with roots in both the US and Argentina. As a child, Stan lost his grandmother to leukemia, and in the past several months, has again lost to cancer two dear and important family friends: Barbara Cahn, and Nancy Roche. It is in their honor, and in support of all families and friends who are affected by this unfortunately ubiquitous disease, that Stan dedicates his efforts with Everest Rocks.
Stan is a regular marathon runner, often for charities benefiting cancer research. He’s been both a participant and a mentor for Team in Training (TNT): The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and has also run ten major marathons, including New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, and Big Sur. Aside from running, Stan is an avid mountaineer and loves experiencing other cultures and cuisines throughout his travels. He’s visited over 40 countries, and has trekked and climbed the mountains of Chile, Peru, Argentina and Ecuador. It’s been a lifelong dream of his to visit the Himalayas, but the realization of this coupled with this greater purpose of generating greater cancer awareness and raising funds for research and prevention is what instills this journey with real meaning.
Stan has a BA and an MBA from Columbia University, and is Managing Director of International Channel Development for Hearst Entertainment & Syndication. Prior to this, he worked as a market strategist for Viacom International. He speaks 5 languages, and has lived and worked in Japan, France, Argentina and the US. Stan is also completing an education with the French Culinary Institute in New York City.
