“Lauren’s previous advisory work will help strengthen Savills Studley’s client services within in the retail sector, where the firm sees a tremendous opportunity for growth,” said David Lipson, Executive Vice President, Director and Co-Regional Manager for the Washington, D.C. region. “We will continue to make additional strategic talent acquisitions both in D.C. and nationally,” added Lipson.
