Lauren joined Lexell Blue in September 2018 as a Platinum Subcontractor Team Member and has 20+ years leading accounting and financial systems teams as both a Controller and leader of transformative initiatives. Throughout her career as an accounting executive, she was continually drawn to transformation projects and has built a specialty in serving as both a SME and a project manager implementing Deltek Costpoint, Time and Expense, HFM Consolidations and Hyperion Planning in highly complex, dynamic environments.
Over the last several years, Lauren has worked extensively with Deltek Costpoint, Time and Expense, Cognos, and the Hyperion suite of products in both a day to day operational capacity as well as successfully orchestrating the multi-national, multi-company financial systems integration of several Fortune 500 companies onto these platforms. As a SME herself, she enjoys designing solutions that work for the business while leveraging the system functionality “out of the box”. Her desire to deliver end-to-end solutions across the enterprise applications makes her an excellent partner with IT, functional system owners, process owners, internal audit and C-Level management to ultimately deliver long term, scalable solutions for her clients.
Lauren has a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance (double major), is an active Certified Public Accountant and is currently pursuing her PMP certifications. She currently resides in Hamilton, Virginia with her husband, son and daughter, when she is lucky enough to have her home from college.
