We are excited to announce our own Lauren Persico has been awarded 30 Under 30 by Long Island Business News!
The 30 Under 30 awards honor the bright and dynamic young professionals who are under the age of 30, who contribute to the Long Island community through public service, and who have made significant strides in business.
This recognition comes in the same year Lauren was named an Executive Circle Honoree earlier this year. She was also recognized as one of the Top 50 Women in Business in 2015!
Lauren served as top executive at Driven Local for 6 years where she contributed to the digital marketing company’s growth. [Editor’s Note: She later joined Scorpion as Executive Vice President after it acquired Driven Local.
When not busy in office, Lauren is jet-setting off to various digital summits, industry events, and trade shows, speaking as a digital expert and female business owner. She can also often be found on the campus of some of the largest companies in the digital space—including Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Facebook—working on strategic partnerships, growth opportunities, speaking events, and strengthening client services.
Lauren has always been an advocate for giving back and pushing the cause for Long Island’s youth to stay abreast of the shift to digital in all the different ways we communicate and operate our personal and professional lives. As such, she has volunteered at Half Hollow Hills (for the King of the Hills Competition and School to Business Program) and the Suffolk County E-Learning Program as a digital marketing expert for program coordination and curriculum development. Additionally, she started our office’s Driven Women initiative, aimed at motivating the women of her workplace to be powerful allies for each other and celebrate accomplishments.
Thank you, Lauren. We are so proud of you!
