Lauren Bailey

Co-Founder and COO

Named a “rising star” by FedScoop in 2012, Lauren Bailey has played a central role at the confluence of public relations and technology in business and government for the past six years. At the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, she served as special assistant to VA’s first Chief Technology Officer, leading efforts to implement the White House Open Government initiative. In less than two years, Lauren became Deputy Director of VA’s first Office of Digital Media—where she managed operations for a team featured in The Washington Post, The Federal Times, Government Executive, and Stars and Stripes. Lauren later joined the award-winning digital team at global PR firm FleishmanHillard where she coordinated communications projects for some of the world’s largest companies. She most recently led a team of digital strategists at CDR Fundraising Group.
