Mackenzie Lantefield

Senior Manager, Founder Community & Strategic Programs

A proud Razorback, Mackenzie graduated from the Sam M. Walton School of Business at the University of Arkansas. During her time there, she served as Panhellenic President and Deputy Student Body Secretary (amongst several other activities and organizations). She's as much of a go-getter now as she was then.


E-commerce at Neiman Marcus is what led her to Dallas after graduation. After a couple of years at Neimans, she realized she had a knack for quick learning, client-facing roles, and strategy, which landed her at Sendero, a management consulting firm. While she was in consulting, her experience ranged from Project Management, to Organizational Change Management, to Strategy. At Will Reed, she decided to try all three at the same time as a Sr. Manager of Founder Community and Strategic Programs. 


Mackenzie currently lives in the Lake Highlands area of Dallas and loves that her siblings are all within a 20 minute drive. When she's not with them for Sunday Night Family Dinners, she is either hanging out with friends, at NorthPark mall, or hanging out with friends at NorthPark mall. If shopping isn't involved, then she's exploring Dallas, going to a lake, or planning a trip with her friends.
