Lola.com Adds Founder and CEO of OPEXEngine to Agile Operations Summit Speaker Lineup

Lauren Kelley to Present on Important Metrics and Benchmarking Tactics on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 in Boston

 BOSTON – July 2, 2019 Lola.com, the Agile Travel Management™ company that provides a super simple way to manage, book, and report on business travel, has added Lauren Kelley, founder and CEO of OPEXEngine, the leading SaaS benchmarking platform and Finance Community, as a speaker at the company’s first Agile Operations Summit on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 in Boston. CFOs and CEOs of leading software companies use the OPEXEngine confidential benchmarking platform to benchmark their performance and operations, keep up-to-date on operating trends in the sector, and position their companies for growth.

“Our main goal with the Agile Operations Summit is to deliver valuable information in one content-packed day that finance and operations leaders can use to help their companies become more agile to support growth,” said Mike Volpe, CEO of Lola.com. “Lauren Kelley is a tremendous value-add to our lineup of speakers, presenting on important metrics and benchmarking tactics.”

After 25 years in fast growth high tech companies, Kelley has found that data and benchmarks level the playing field to make better operational decisions, resource allocations, and improve growth. Prior to OPEXEngine, she led worldwide revenue and operations for internet and e-commerce pioneer, ATG (now part of Oracle), as SVP of Worldwide Sales and Strategic Development, from startup through ATG’s IPO. 

Before ATG, Kelley managed 22 countries for Borland Software from Paris, France and helped build Compaq’s East European business from Munich, Germany. She started her professional career as an international economist in the Office of Computers at the U.S. Department of Commerce, where she represented the U.S. supercomputer industry in trade negotiations in Japan and Europe. 

The event is being held at the award-winning EpiCenter at Artists for Humanity, providing paid employment in art and design for over 250 under-resourced Boston teens annually. Regular tickets include access to all the content, breakfast, lunch, snacks, and a spot at the one-of-a-kind after party with food and open bar. VIP tickets add a reserved seat in the first three rows for the keynote featuring Barbara Corcoran, “Shark” on ABC’s hit reality TV show, Shark Tank, a copy of her best-selling book, Shark Tales, and an exclusive meet and greet where she will sign your book and take a picture.
