Lauren is praised for her leadership role in milestone deals like CC Capital’s $6.9 billion purchase of Dun & Bradstreet Corp. Chinh Chu, the founder of CC Capital noted that during the negotiation process of the agreement, “Lauren did a phenomenal job. To flawlessly execute a $7 billion public-to-private deal with this level of complexity and short fuse is a credit to Lauren.”
