About Lauren Persico

Lauren’s career in Digital Marketing began as a Social Media Account Manager for Driven Local, in what was a relatively new channel for businesses to leverage. Soon after moving through the ranks and growing the social media department, she moved into a Director of Operations position where she founded and grew additional products and services for Driven Local to offer, including Local Listings, SEO and Facebook Advertising. After excelling in yet another new role for the company, Lauren was made Partner in 2013. In 2015, she was promoted to Senior Executive Vice President to run the company alongside CEO Kevin Szypula.

With over 2000 clients throughout the United States, Driven Local — a nationally recognized, Long Island based digital marketing agency for small to medium sized businesses and franchise brands — was one of the earliest agencies to be awarded Google AdWords Premier Partner Status (in 2010), maintained a spot on the Inc. 500/5000 list three years running and was also voted Best Places to Work by Long Island Business News in 2017.

Under Lauren’s leadership, Driven Local saw a very healthy year-over-year increase in sales and exponential growth of the company — not only its products and services but employees as well (totaling 100+ in several offices around the country). As an advocate for women in the workplace, Lauren founded “Driven Women” — an after-work program aimed at motivating the women within Driven Local to be powerful allies for each other at work and to celebrate their accomplishments.

In 2017, with an impeccable reputation for service and quality standards, Driven Local was acquired by Scorpion. Sharing the same drive and commitment to client and employee satisfaction, joining forces was a no brainer.

Lauren has been recognized for her dedication and commitment to success over the last several years with various awards and recognitions including two time award winner of LIBN’s Top 50 Women in Business in 2015 and 2017; Most Influential Women in Business in 2016; Executive Circle Honoree in 2017; and Top 30 Executives Under 30 Years Old in 2017.

Lauren is excited to be part of the Scorpion Executive team and to lead the transition from NY.

Lauren Persico Outside The Office

In her (extremely limited) downtime, Lauren loves spending time with her husband, James and two daughters, Emerson and Avery. You can usually find her booking (another) trip to a Disney property, securing VIP level tickets for the next The Fray show (that’s right - The Fray, hit 90’s band that Lauren has an abnormal obsession with), being a Sheryl Sandberg fangirl, drinking expensive wine (she’s a wine snob), or researching dessert menus at various restaurants around the country. Lauren loves traveling, and cannot wait to get back to her favorite place, Hawaii!

Prior to her life in Digital Marketing, Lauren, a huge New York Rangers fan, worked for the NHL for 4 years on the broadcast and production team. LGR!
