Laura has over 15 years of experience in strategy, marketing and communication, having worked for some of the most notable advertising agencies in the world (Havas Worldwide / BETC EURO RSCG, Untitled Worldwide, among others). Her passion for advertising and communication are closely linked with Italy, where she was born and raised. She graduated Summa cum Laude with a Masters from Bocconi University in Milan, Italy, and then completed a Masters in Economics at Harvard University. Prior to founding her own agency, she worked as the Head of Strategy and Marketing for Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Oscar de la Renta. Past clients include: Hermès, The Gap, Brooks Brothers, Swarovski, Harry Winston, W Magazine, Hearst Publications, among many others.
Laura lives in New York with her husband and daughter and – when she is not working – she loves exploring and re-discovering the city’s art scene. She loves contemporary art but also getting lost in one of the Met’s Renaissance rooms.
She is a Professor of Marketing at Parsons and loves teaching. Through her work, she hopes to find new ways to make advertising an even more powerful platform for discussion and debate.
