Lauren Herring sees the whole picture.

-Whether she’s expanding her career transitions firm Impact Group into global markets or pushing her employees to develop a well-rounded set of skills, she always has her eyes set on growth.

After joining the firm in 2001 after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, Herring rose through the ranks to become CEO in 2009. During her ascent, she introduced a global operations department to direct the company toward the international market. This vision helped Impact increase its revenue to $15 million from $5 million.

In 2010, Herring, 36, developed and launched Talent Alliance, a talent development program for high-potential employees. The initiative includes a career coach and has helped drive leadership development, team engagement and change management.

But her efforts don’t stop at the office doors. Herring also serves on the board of five nonprofit organizations: the American Heart Association, Center of Creative Arts, Connections to Success, Junior Achievement and United Way.
