Lauren Warkentine


Lauren Warkentine is the founder and CEO of William & Lauren. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma (Finance) and Oklahoma Christian University (MBA), entrepreneurship is in Lauren’s blood. After graduation, Lauren worked at Moore, Oklahoma pharmaceutical software company Computer-Rx, where she quickly rose to become the company’s president.

William & Lauren was born after my own fateful experience with collapsed confidence at a dinner meeting in 2015. As a female executive in the pharmacy technology space, it was incredibly difficult for her to find good work wear, but it was nearly impossible to find blazers and suits that fit, and she felt confident in, let alone any variety of color or pattern.

Lauren went full time with William & Lauren in 2019, where she is committed to helping men and women look and feel their best. She loves anything that keeps her curious such as podcasts, books, scuba diving, traveling to my next adventure, catching a Thunder game, or having a drink on a patio with good friends.
