Laurie Schalow
Laurie was named in the Business Insider’s list of the world’s 27 most powerful PR pros. The list features a number of communications chiefs from the world’s biggest brands and notes how these leaders helped shape public opinion by, “wrangling the press, tamping down crises, promoting their employers’ agenda, and experimenting with new tactics and strategies.”
Notably, Laurie’s write-up praises her leadership in helping drive Chipotle’s comeback and turnaround. The article mentions that Laurie’s efforts helped the company secure a 2019 feature in Time Magazine titled, “Inside Chipotle’s Plan to Make You Love It Again” and notes that Laurie’s efforts helped Chipotle get the No. 1 rank in the “Ipsos Consumer Health & Safety Index” for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lynn Schenk and Gayle Tauber
Lynn along with Gayle and Philip Tauber met in late June and discussed the idea of a political ad featuring Joe Biden at the mic encircled by a diverse group of Americans with U.S. flags lined up behind them. They envisioned them speaking out, loud and proud, the preamble of the U.S. Constitution beginning with: “We the People.” Lynn relayed the idea to the Biden campaign. On the opening night of the virtual Democratic Convention, after the opening greeting, a video displaying their idea of a diverse group of Americans reciting “We the People” was shown.

“The Trusteeship is a wonderful refuge — a place to go that is safe, nurturing and supportive. A place where you can suspend time — where the pressures and demands of your daily routine become secondary to the sharing of confidences and passions with women that walk similar paths and know your challenges and triumphs.”

– Rita
