Sales Assistant – Greater Media Detroit
Growing up in the Metro Detroit area, Greater Media Detroit’s Lauren Conn always loved listening to WRIF-FM and WCSX-FM. Little did she know that one day she’d be one of the people making things happen at these heritage stations.
Lauren joined Greater Media Detroit in early 2011 as a Sales Assistant, and soon people began to take note of her skill and talent. With a background in event planning and promotion, Lauren demonstrated an attention to detail and natural ability to work with people, which made her a perfect choice to spearhead Greater Media Detroit’s Deal Program. She started overseeing the program in mid-2011 and has embraced the challenge head-on. Lauren shared that one of the many things she has enjoyed about working on the Deal Program is that she gets to work directly with clients to help them find success.
As Lauren will tell you, there is a new opportunity for her to be creative every day. From working with a client to craft a perfect deal offering to teaming with an account manager to develop a great proposal, each day brings something fun and new.
Lauren has been using her creativity to help others through her volunteer efforts for Relay for Life in Shelby Township, MI. Lauren and her mother, a breast cancer survivor, got involved in the program to benefit the American Cancer Society eight years ago. Today, she is on the planning committee and helps run the website, the ceremonies and of course raise funds. Since she started working with the Relay for Life, Lauren’s team has raised over $100,000, and this year the community event is poised to raise more than $160,0000.
When not working or volunteering, you can find Lauren and her fiancé, Brian, visiting many of the historic locations in and around Detroit and attending concerts. Lauren tells us that she has seen Bob Seger twice and loved both shows. She’s really looking forward to seeing another Detroit rock ’n’ roll hero, Kid Rock, this summer.
We are so proud to salute Lauren for everything that she does every day to make Greater Media Detroit great!
