Loren co-founded Reputation Economy Advisors to serve the strategic needs of large, multi-stakeholder organizations struggling to make commercial sense of today's new marketplace reality — the integration complexity of today's Reputation Economy. His passion for answering the fundamental business question: Reputation to What End?, alongside the ubiquitous convergence of strategy consulting and technology, lead the need to leverage his relationships

reputation management pioneer (and current strategic partner) Reputation.com approached Loren, alongside his longtime business partner, to lead Enterprise Partnerships and Strategy. Previously, Loren spent the last 6 years leading the North American business at Reputation Institute, as the firm's first commercial executive responsible for sales, marketing, and strategic initiatives. Prior to his tenure at Reputation Institute, Loren served in various business- building capacities, both at frog (Steve Jobs' first design agency-of-record) and The Corporate Executive Board, where he lead the global growth and development of the firm's professional services division (the original Challenger™ Sale vertical). He is a proud native of Port-au-Prince, Haiti and alumnus of The Community School of Naples.
Managing the complexity of today's interconnected, digital world requires a lot — too much for a CEO and their team to do without help. As potential customers, employees, investors, and key influencers increasingly consider who you are and what you stand for before making decisions to engage with you, the risk of an inconsistent “corporate voice” has become too big to ignore. We built Reputation Economy Advisors to support organizations on a path towards Reputation Management as competitive advantage.
Our experience and exposure to the biggest, most complex organizations on earth during the evolution of the Reputation Economy puts us in a unique position to help you do just that — first and foremost as advisors to leaders who seek seasoned, outside-in perspective. Additionally, we serve as technology matchmakers who understand and can guide your customer integration and analytics needs for enterprise-wide alignment.
