Lauren Sheanon

Human Resources Director

Lauren Sheanon is the Human Resources Director at BanyanGlobal, leading all aspects of HR for the firm including talent acquisition, development, employee relations, and HR administration.

She has spent her career working across the spectrum of human resources functions in primarily advertising, media, and PR. This generalist background in professional services firms provides her a great foundation with which to support the very talented people at BanyanGlobal.

Before joining BanyanGlobal, she managed People & Organizational Development for Boston area firms Mediahub + MullenLowe, both part of the Interpublic Group of Companies. In that role she was responsible for creating a new model for performance management and expanding the firms’ DEI & Belonging efforts. Her prior cross-functional HR roles have provided her with years of experience in doing what she loves most – helping employees be their authentic and best selves at work.

As a member of the BanyanGlobal leadership team, what excites Lauren about her role is the opportunity to impact all aspects of the employee experience. The BanyanGlobal team works hard together for their clients with the firm’s values at the heart of every decision. She’s proud to support an organization that is helping families navigate such complex and challenging decisions.

Lauren attended Northeastern University in Boston, where she earned BA in Journalism and Public Relations. She currently lives outside of Boston with her husband Chris and two children. She keeps busy with sports, activities, and time with family.
