Lauren has led successful branding initiatives for a wide range of leading companies, clearly and efficiently setting key priorities, asking the right questions and listening carefully to achieve great results. Her client roster includes American Express, Abdul Latif Jameel, the World Health Organization and London & Partners, who have all relied on her solid strategic insight and expert communication skills to achieve their goals.
Before joining us Lauren worked at TargetRx, a pharmaceutical marketing and advertising research company, where she directed online research engagements for clients such as Pfizer, Wyeth, Novartis and Johnson & Johnson. Earlier in her career Lauren helped manage the marketing of the Latina pop singer Shakira.
