Lauren Danziger has been a mentor to me starting back when I met her in 2011. I was connected to her through the Meatpacking Business Improvement District (BID), the non-profit that Lauren runs that ensures the Meatpacking District’s business community and public realm is operating at a high level. Through my events role at Tory Burch I would attend networking events (alone) hosted by the BID, tailored to employees of businesses in the neighborhood. Lauren  and her extraordinary team work with icons like Andrew Rosen and Diane Von Furstenberg to support the business community , foster relationships and manage the district as though it was one cohesive unit.  Last year they underwent a rebranding to cement a verbal and visual identity and throughout the year she manages the public areas and the streets.  Lauren and her team make sure the area is in tip top shape (think snow storms, hurricanes, flooding, sanitation, etc). from dealing with re-cobbling of the iconic roads, to producing programing and events to highlight the offerings of the historic neighborhood.

Lauren is one of the most vibrant women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting, an incredible friend and a #Bosslady in everything she does. Read about Lauren’s journey from finance to non-profit and all the that she’s experienced along the way.
