Laurel sits on the Board of Directors for NFTE (Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship), the Women Founders Network, and the UCLA Resturant Conference. She is a mentor for The Women’s Global Leaders Initiative and advices LAVA (Los Angeles Venture Association). Laurel wrote a weekly Inc. Magazine column appropriately entitled “On Brand” for three years. Her published work can be found in Entrepreneur, USA Today, The American Marketing Association and C-Suite Quarterly Magazine. Laurel and the agency have recently won the W3 Silver Award for the PAW Patrol Road Patrol Campaign, the 2017 Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Award, the LABJ Women in Business Award, Comerica and LA Lakers’ women’s Business Award, amongst others.
With a J.D/M.B.A from Rutgers University, Laurel’s background has uniquely prepared her to run a successful agency. Inspired by the innovative consulting work she executed early in her career with prestigious brands like Le Bec Fin, Public House Resturant Group, Bassett Furniture and Julie Hewett Cosmetics, Laurel knew she wanted to play bigger. A decade later, Laurel has created an agency family serving both startups and blue chip global brands like Facebook, Verizon Digital Media Group, PAW Patrol and Zendesk. Laurel’s favorite saying is FIOGID. Figure it out, get it done. And that’s exactly what’s brought the agency top talent and accolades since 2009.
“The Preccelerator Program is one of my favorites to participate in. It’s so exciting to see all the new entrepreneurs and their brilliant ideas go from concept to execution. To feel like I’m some small part of their success is such an honor!”
