Cut+Run New York is proud to announce that Lauren Hertzberg has been made a partner in the company and assumes the role of Managing Partner. Hertzberg joined Cut+Run in 2016 and leads the New York office with Editor/Partner Jon Grover.
“Anyone who knows Lauren has a deep appreciation for her dedication, passion, work ethic and spirit of collaboration,” affirms Grover. “She truly makes time for every individual to feel supported and heard, and I am so grateful for our working relationship and what she brings to the company. She’s been a longtime partner to all of us, so this official next step is well-deserved.”
Hertzberg joined Cut+Run as Executive Producer from The Whitehouse, where she worked her way up from receptionist to Executive producer in their Chicago and New York offices. In 2018, she was promoted to Managing Director of Cut+Run NY, expanding her role to work in close partnership with the company’s leadership team including Los Angeles-based Managing Partner Michelle Eskin.
“From the moment I joined the talented team at Cut+Run, I knew I had found my people,” comments Hertzberg. “And over the past four years, my admiration for our editors as well as production and assistant teams from coast to coast has only grown. This past year certainly tested us all and I am proud of how we faced every challenge together. The more I work alongside this creative and thoughtful group, the more excited and honored I am to be a partner.”
Mentorship and supporting women in the industry has long been important to Hertzberg. As she explains, “I have had the good fortune of having a few strong and career-defining female mentors and role models over the years. I really see this new role as an opportunity to pay it forward by helping develop and support the next generation.”
