Lauren Hurley, President and Founder, started her recruiting profession with a generalist firm where she specialized in the Investment Industry, a previously undeveloped market for that firm. Lauren has received numerous honors based on her achievements as a top performer and was awarded a national recruiting firm's coveted Outstanding Recruiter of the Year Award several times during her tenure.
After being recruited as a Vice President for a national career counseling and outplacement firm she developed and built a new recruiting division where she successfully placed senior level executives on a national scale. Lauren also Co-hosted the company’s weekly radio show “The Workplace” on KPRZ 1210 AM, San Diego, CA.
Lauren later became an on-site Recruiting Consultant for The Anthony Robbins Company and placed sales and operations executives for their organization as well as trained staff in recruiting strategies and methods.
In 1999, during Lauren’s personal experiences with her Mother’s Alzheimer’s disease and her Father’s need for extensive care, Lauren developed a passion for the care of all seniors. As a result, LM Hurley & Associates Executive Recruiting was formed by Lauren to create an executive search firm she envisioned would offer a specialized service to her clients and candidates. She saw a need within the Senior Living Industry to find the best candidates who are highly professional and passionate about the care of seniors.
Lauren Hurley has completed an approved 40 hour Administrator Certification course and has passed the state exam required to become an RCFE (Residential Care Facility for the Elderly) Administrator. This certification has enabled her to provide clients additional value in and strengthened her industry expertise and understanding of her client’s needs as well as the needs of the residents that senior living providers serve.
She has been a member and volunteer of the Alzheimer’s Association since 1999. A native of Massachusetts, Lauren moved to San Diego in 1988 and earned a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from San Diego State University.
