Strategic Relationship Partner

Having spent three years working in Recruitment prior to joining Miller Leith, Lauren has a good idea of what it takes in order to ensure we get the process right.

Therefore, as Strategic Relationship Partner, Lauren operates very closely with the Leadership Team supporting the growth strategy for Miller Leith nationally, by overseeing various projects and account management plans that aim towards strengthening current relationships and offering and creating new long-term relationships for the business.

Lauren also enjoys leading our Corporate Social Responsibility program. Working closely with Love Me Love You, Lauren ensures our commitment to supporting youth mental health awareness remains at forefront of what we do.

Additionally, Lauren ensures that we continue to give back to the community, whether incorporating food, as an industry has provided so much to us, or specifically the GO foundation and leading workshops with the aim of supporting their mission of creating opportunities for indigenous youths through education.

Outside of Miller Leith, Lauren loves travelling, her dog Baxter, F45 and spending time with family and friends.
