Laurie Dejong

CEO, LDJ Productions at PMC

Laurie DeJong is the founder and CEO of LDJ Productions, a multi-million-dollar event management, creative and production company based in New York City. A former beauty executive, Laurie brings over 25 years of event and business operations experience to oversee the vision, strategic direction, and structure of the company.

Laurie has quickly become sought after as a global business leader in a variety of fields including fashion, tech, beauty, media and corporate events. Clients of LDJ include L’Oréal, New York Times, Google, Verizon, Rolls Royce and many more Fortune 500 companies. LDJ served as the producing agency for the management, design, production and operations of New York Fashion Week, the largest fashion event in the world. Laurie served at the helm of this event for a decade and led the team that transformed the central showcase from a tented event to multiple permanent structures.

Her passion for business is equally matched by her passion for helping others. For many years, Laurie has been a longtime mentor of woman and girls in developing nations throughout the world. Through these mentorships and global partnerships, Laurie soon realized the impact a small company can make in the world and founded The Paper Fig Foundation, LDJ’s charitable initiative.
