MK ATLANTA – A think tank that executes for and with its clients – is a natural evolution and continuum of both Lauren and Gordon’s experiences.
Gordon Morse / Co-Founder of MK Atlanta
Over Gordon’s thirty plus years career in the financial services industry, he ran critical businesses for several of the world’s oldest and most prestigious investment firms, generating significant revenue and profitability.
Along this career path he experienced every type of economic cycle, and weathered numerous crises and dealt with other significant challenges, all vital to the sustainability and growth of the enterprises he was leading. The serious thought, attention, and action that these situations required led to the development of strong leadership acumen and a unique skill set that he now brings to MK ATLANTA clients.
Lauren Kelley / Co-Founder of MK Atlanta
Across varying industries Lauren has worked with entrepreneurs to identify, create and nurture strategic partnerships; establish standard operating procedures; strengthen brand identity and product development; and identify and execute scalable growth strategies.
An Atlanta native, Lauren spent the first five years of her career facilitating leadership development for college students domestically and abroad. During that time she discovered on the UC Irvine campus her passion for tech startups, which led her to work in community, operations and product development in the technology industry. In 2018 she participated in Clutch Technology’s exit to Cox Automotive. In 2019 she worked alongside two female founders: the CEO of a thriving flagship store in Ponce City Market, the Modern Mystic, followed by the founder of idealDESIGN, inc – the foundation of Atlanta’s small business associations.
