Lauren Peck joined HBA in December of 2013 and is currently associate director of stakeholder engagement. As a member of the Member Experience department, she helps oversee the HBA’s stakeholder-facing volunteer functions (corporate relations, membership, and volunteer experience), working closely with cross-functional staff, to create the optimal experience for all. In her role, Lauren is invested in designing and implementing the ideal organizational structures across HBA for maximum efficiency and volunteer satisfaction, and is a resource for volunteer leaders at all levels, across all functions. Lauren works globally across the organization: advising/supporting the global council and affinity groups; helping drive HBA’s global growth strategy/locations and Community engagement; overseeing the HBA’s global Ambassador Program and committee, and supervising HBA’s European office and European Leadership Summit team.
Over her time with HBA, Lauren has held a number of evolving roles. Most recently, she was senior manager of corporate development, focusing primarily on HBA’s corporate customers. Prior to that role, she was manager of chapter development and assisted in the design of the organization’s new operating model before supporting and managing the transition into the new model with multiple regions. When Lauren first joined HBA, it was as manager of meetings and events administration, where she managed and supported the former Metro chapter (now the NY/NJ/CT Region), their board and volunteers.
Before joining HBA, Lauren worked in event coordination and office management for a private entertainment company and graduated from Rutgers University with a focus in art history and Italian. Lauren currently resides in New Jersey, USA and volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters and YWCA Princeton. In her free time, Lauren is a self-proclaimed bookworm, loves traveling, baking (but not cooking), and spending time with her friends, family, husband and dog.
