The Rocket City is full of professionals achieving milestones in business, civic and social accomplishments, making our local community a fantastic place to live, work and play.
256 Magazine is North Alabama's premier local lifestyle magazine and recently published their Faces Under 40 special, featuring a variety of young professionals who are doing amazing things for our community.
Flourish CEO and Founder, Megan Nivens, was one of those faces featured.
Megan’s background ranges from working in non-profit to multi-million-dollar organizations, doing everything from digital marketing, public relations, strategic communications, business development and more. Most recently she’s worked in high tech and noticed the lack of insight and faith in what strategic marketing is really all about. It goes beyond just ‘making things pretty.’ Instead, it involves creative collaboration, market understanding, competitive awareness and so much more – which drove her to start Flourish, which just celebrated its first year in operations. Flourish has clients in the healthcare, telecom, aerospace/defense, real estate, sports and entertainment industries and is experiencing rapid growth.
She’s also spent the last several years as Chief Growth Officer for lifestyle business, NotTied, which helps recent divorcees maneuver their lives after going through a divorce.
Her passion is people and finding solutions to problems – whether its mentoring students, guiding non-profits, helping her kids maneuver life’s’ challenges, or working with clients to determine areas for growth and overall success.
In addition to managing her business, she volunteers a lot of her time, to include serving as a Board Member for the North Alabama Public Relations Council, being an active student mentor through the University of Central Florida (go Knights!), volunteers as a communications committee member for Semper Fi, has co-led communications efforts for the recent Wall That Heals (Vietnam Veterans Memorial that came to Huntsville in November 2018), supports public relations efforts for Huntsville-based non-profit startup accelerator Urban Engine and speaks at various events to educate/inform about the public relations/marketing/communications field.
However, and most importantly, she’s a Mom to 2 young children (6 & 14) and a stepmom to a vivacious 10-year-old.
