Lauren Haag

Analytics and Operations Leader | 10+ Years of Excellence in Scaling and Optimizing

I have 10+ years experience at the intersection of analytics and operations, driving efficiency at big companies like Disney, Walmart and Docusign, with a stop along the way to get an MBA at Columbia. Most recently, I worked at Rent the Runway; first, I built out a Business Intelligence team and later was GM of Resale.

I support my clients in 2 main areas: business operations and data analytics.

Business Operations: I can devise and/or automate processes to help you scale.
