Please join the CREW Boston Public Strategies Committee for a discussion with MassDevelopment President and CEO Lauren Liss.  Lauren joined the Agency in September 2017, and she will discuss MassDevelopment’s latest initiatives and goals in real estate and finance.

Lauren has extensive experience in both the public and private sectors, holding leadership positions at state agencies and in the legal field. As MassDEP Commissioner beginning in 1999, she oversaw the development, implementation, and enforcement of air, water, waste, and site cleanup policy for the Commonwealth. At DEP, she managed a $110 million annual budget and a staff of 1,100. Prior to MassDEP, Lauren had worked for the Commonwealth at the Executive Office of Transportation and Construction from 1997 to 1999. Most recently, at Rubin and Rudman, which she joined as a partner in 2003, Lauren represented clients including large public corporations, higher-education institutions, and developers. Her areas of expertise include land use, transportation, and administrative law. She is a member of the boards of directors at MassEcon, NAIOP, and The New England Council.
MassDevelopment, the state’s finance and development agency, works with businesses, nonprofits, financial institutions, and communities to stimulate economic growth across the Commonwealth. During FY2017, MassDevelopment financed or managed 377 projects generating investment of more than $4.3 billion in the Massachusetts economy. These projects are projected to create about 9,488 jobs and build or rehabilitate 1,863 residential units.
