Lauren Borghard

Director, Communications & Public Affairs

A Hartford, CT native who spent eight years in NYC working for and advising some of the city’s largest financial firms, Lauren has enthusiastically taken her knack for strategic communications back to her home state. Lauren brings a deep understanding of investor expectations, as well as the importance of effective communications during periods of uncertainty or change. While working in house, she experienced first-hand the true downside of headline risk, and Lauren now works tirelessly to help clients navigate complex situations and weather any storm.

Prior to joining GSG, Lauren was with Brunswick Group’s strategic communications practice in NYC, where she worked with public and private corporations across a variety of situations, including M&A, investor relations, crisis communications and reputation management. Lauren’s previous experience includes investor relations at Brevan Howard, a multi-billion dollar hedge fund, where she managed the firm’s US-based relationships with institutional investors. Lauren began her career at Bloomberg LP.

Lauren attended Boston College and earned a BA in English with a concentration in Business. Outside of the office, Lauren can be found out walking her Goldendoodle named Cooley, perfecting a new favorite Bon Appetit recipe or on her bike enjoying the back roads of the Farmington Valley. Lauren lives in West Hartford, CT with her husband.
