Lauren Bergren Gore ’13

Lauren grew up in Central Connecticut and started at Western Connecticut State University in the fall of 2009. She then graduated in May with her Bachelors in Business Administration.

While at Western, Lauren was heavily involved with the Marketing Club, led by Professor Ronald Drozdenko and Professor Donna Coelho. During her junior and senior year, she was the Vice President and Acting President. In March 2013, the Marketing Club was awarded numerous awards at the 35th Annual International Collegiate Conference in Louisiana. Most notably, the club was awarded a Top 25 Chapter within the United States and Puerto Rico.

That same year, the Marketing Club was awarded the Ancell School of Business Student Organization of the Year, and Lauren was awarded at the Student Leadership Banquet for outstanding leadership.

Since graduation, Lauren has held many prestigious career roles. She started her career off at Affinion Group in Stamford in affiliate marketing, and has since worked her way up to an Account Manager at Hearst; one of the world’s largest publishers. She worked with some of the world’s largest brands; and could not be more thankful for the opportunity.

While in Africa on their honeymoon, Lauren and her husband visited and donated items to many local villages, and it was at that moment that Lauren decided it was time for a drastic career change. She wanted to make a difference in the world, and decided to go to medical school. While she is many years away, she would not be where she is today without her business education from Western.

While she is in school, she also enjoys volunteering her time to the Alumni Association, Danbury Hospital, and the Greater Danbury area. If you would like to speak more with Lauren regarding her time in the marketing club or for a mentorship opportunity, you may email her.

She currently resides in lower Fairfield County with her husband, Tyler ’12. Tyler runs his own business, building and remodeling upscale, modern homes. .
