"Champagne and cheese is a totally acceptable dinner."



As a Partner and Head of Ops & Culture, Lauren Schaefer juggles many chainsaws in the air at once. Her focus is on W&W’s experiential arm and bringing W&W’s strategies to life with emotional, tangible and impactful panache.

Lauren’s varied background of photography and event production for the likes of Nike, Adidas, Motorola, The Lowline, Vogue and Vanity Fair combined with navigating the choppy waters of restaurant ownership in NYC has set her up to take on the most challenging of tasks with ambition, creativity and grace. Lauren approaches challenges with a level head but also a get-shit-done attitude.

When the production world slows down, you can find Lauren cooking up a four course dinner in her NYC apt or shredding the slopes on the snowiest mountain.
