As Co-Founder and CMO of Sagely Naturals, Kerrigan Behrens has successfully galvanized and accelerated marketplace acceptance of CBD as a natural and effective alternative for the products you would already find in your medicine cabinet.
Since the Santa Monica-based brand’s introduction in 2015, its mission of allowing people to do more of what they love is reflected in the fact that 78% of the brand’s customers have adopted a Sagely product as a permanent substitute for a less natural product in their medicine cabinets. Through education, she has actively de-stigmatized hundreds of thousands of people. Nearly a decade before founding Sagely, Kerrigan began her professional journey at Duke University. Following her graduation, she worked on Wall Street at UBS Securities from 2008 until 2013, handling hedge fund prime brokerage sales, capital introduction, and the alignment of West Coast investors and hedge funds. Drawing on a lifelong passion for food, she transitioned to the restaurant industry, spearheading high-profile marketing initiatives for brands spanning Wolfgang Puck and Taco Bell.
After trying CBD for chronic back pain, Kerrigan approached Co-Founder and COO/CFO Kaley Nichol in 2014 with the initial idea for what would become Sagely Naturals. Launched as a personally funded startup but now backed by leading venture capital, the co-founders diligently built the company into the leading CBD topicals brand in the country with products available online and in thousands of stores nationwide including Neiman Marcus, CVS and others.
