AccruePartners Welcomes Lauren O’Brien!
AccruePartners is excited to announce the recent addition of Lauren O’Brien as Recruiting Director of Information Technology and Marketing.
Lauren is originally from Leesburg, VA but spent the first 10 years of her life in Ringwood, NJ. She attended Virginia Tech where she studied communications with a focus on Journalism. Lauren was drawn to Charlotte mainly because of the warmer weather and the great housing and job markets. In 2009, she relocated to the Queen City.
She started her career in Marketing and while she enjoyed the work, she felt unchallenged. A close friend at the time was a Recruiter, always buzzing and juggling a million balls in the air with her job, and that buzz and intensity resonated with her. In 2007, Lauren embarked on her IT staffing career and never looked back. Twelve years later, she’s still running in heels and juggling a million balls in the air, knowing this is where she’s meant to be.
Lauren first heard of AccruePartners, several years ago as a competitor in the Charlotte market. When asked what initially drew her to AccruePartners she said, “Accrue felt like a fresh perspective in a saturated market of indistinguishable staffing firms. I thrive on the entrepreneurial spirit and comradery of privately-held organizations. After speaking with several firms, AccruePartner’s business model and unique position in the Charlotte marketplace captured my attention.”
Lauren feels passionately about growing and developing teams and individuals to be the absolute best they can be. In her new role as Recruiting Manager of our Information Technology and Marketing divisions, she plans to do just that, while assisting AccruePartners in reaching their goals.
Outside the office, Lauren enjoys live music, hiking, traveling and spending time with friends and family.
We’re excited to welcome her to the team and know she’ll aid in our future achievements!
