She played an integral role in the framework, opening, operations and staff training and became the Director of Sales and Marketing. In 2017, she was recruited and relocated by Stellar Partners, Inc. a leading prime airport retailer based out of Tampa, Florida.
Lauryn has been with Stellar Partners for 3 years working within the Business Development Department. She recently transitioned to the Director of Innovation and Business Development. In addition to business development, Lauryn has an emphasis on innovation, technology and strategy to position Stellar to becoming an even larger retail powerhouse, leading the industry in customer experience, relationship building and brand development.
In addition, Lauryn has utilized her role and Stellar's desire to create a local/small business incubator to assist with connecting ACDBEs and SBEs with various departments within the company to promote diversity and representation in requests for proposals and the Stellar Stores across the country.
In 2018, Lauryn was appointed the Chair for AMAC’s Emerging Leaders Committee and the committee has quickly grown from a conceptualized initiative to a full force committee with highly anticipated and well-attended events by young professionals, emerging leaders and industry legends. Lauryn is also a member of several committees and steering groups within AMAC, in addition to the Business Diversity committee with Airports Council International.
