Lauren Zils

Director of Strategy

Lauren Zils is an industry-leading digital marketer with a solid understanding of the digital marketing ecosystem and what it takes to drive results for our clients. She is a driven professional, never afraid of a challenge and always willing to tackle even the most daunting project. As a Director of Strategy, Lauren’s primary objective is to ensure our clients are meeting their business growth goals, ideally increasing leads and sales.

Lauren thrives on deeply understanding our partners’ respective businesses and problem-solving. She loves coming up with creative solutions to help solve their needs and "joining" their internal teams, ultimately sharing in their successes or improving on things that need work. Lauren is constantly on the search for ways to take a project from good to great. And she has a proven track record of success both at Sanctuary and in her previous work as a Marketing Manager with Communications Resources, Inc. and Shiffler Equipment Sales, Inc.

Ultimately, Lauren’s greatest loves are her husband, Jason, their two children, Jacob and Zoe, and their adorable cat, Bella. They live in North Canton, Ohio, where she finds living near her sister, brother-in-law, mom and dad more fulfilling than living in a bustling city.

Strengths: Achiever | Communication | Strategic | Maximizer | Woo
Education: Ohio University - BBA Marketing
Fun Facts: Exuberant. Ambitious. Loves Sauce.
Fave Quote: "Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts." —Winston S. Churchill
