Meet the leadership team
Lauren’s career in advertising spans three countries and two continents where she’s led leading innovative agencies and delivered award-winning work.
Before joining as President of Doner LA, Lauren was President & CEO of Chandelier Creative, leading offices on both the East and West Coasts and overseeing the expansion into Hong Kong and Europe across clients in the Fashion, Retail, CPG, Travel & Hospitality and Technology space.
Before the U.S., Lauren lived in Australia for 12 years, where she met her husband and ran an award-winning marketing agency. We’re all disappointed that she doesn’t have an Australian accent; it’s probably because she is still a true Canadian at heart – born and raised!
Lauren’s demonstrated entrepreneurial approach, and her breadth of experience working across a vast array of categories and retail brands, as well as her track record for driving growth, fuel Doner LA’s continued momentum.
