Lauren EllermeyerCo-Founder, Beyond Fifteen Communications

Lauren Ellermeyer is more than an accomplished public relations specialist. She’s a forward-thinking entrepreneur with a passion for all things business, with a priority on steering growth and success for her clients. Ellermeyer, who sits on some of Orange County’s most prominent boards, including Tech Coast Venture Network and American Family Housing, is no stranger to today’s evolving marketplace and its impact on optimistic start-ups and mega corporations. 

From high tech to higher education, Ellermeyer’s wide range of expertise and relationships across multiple verticals keeps her steps ahead of her clients’ immediate and future needs – no matter their size. But for Ellermeyer, building business is more than understanding her clients’ products or services. It’s about constantly being on the lookout for ideas that are progressive, sometimes daring and always results-driven. 

Fluent in Spanish, Ellermeyer’s business acumen delivers solid thinking and execution on a bilingual level, an added plus to any client targeting Hispanic audiences. 

A passion for business is not only in Ellermeyer’s blood; it’s a significant part of her extracurricular life. When she’s not brainstorming strategies, networking with industry leaders or connecting people to opportunities, Ellermeyer is collaborating with well-known organizations like TedXOrange Coast and Visionary Executives Network. She also devotes her time to countless business owners and students from renowned institutions and programs such as Concordia University and UCI Harvard Leadership Series, educating and inspiring them to become successful entrepreneurs. 

Prior to co-founding Beyond Fifteen Communications, Ellermeyer owned and operated BCN Events, and also served as an account manager at an Orange County-based agency where she built client brand recognition through national media exposure. Ellermeyer received a bachelor’s degree in public relations and communications from the European University.
