Our founder's story

In 2014, Lori worked as President of a fledgling digital media agency in New York. She was unhappy with how the ownership was guiding the agency and saw an opportunity. As the only female member of a 12-person team of board members and management, Lori made the bold move to purchase the agency from its shareholder group. Lori successfully retained 100% of the clients and employees, who embraced her as the new agency owner. The team moved into a new office space and transformed the brand into the present-day Silverlight Digital, where Lori presides as founder, owner, and CEO. In 2018, Lori proudly earned recognition for  Silverlight Digital as a certified woman-owned business.
