Meet Our Founder: Megan McNally
Megan is a Seattle-based attorney, strategy consultant, and community builder. She brings executive-level leadership and on-the-ground tactical experience to all aspects of organizational strategy, design, and change management. Our clients appreciate her empathy, humor, and collaborative approach whether reimagining the future or solving complex problems. Some call her a Board Whisperer for her ability to facilitate meaningful conversations in the board room that lead to better governance.
Megan’s work has spanned nearly three decades, most sectors, and many industries. She has served as an organizational leader, consultant, educator, and public speaker, including executive roles with the NPower National Network, Washington State Bar Association & Foundation, Pacific Science Center, and Diana Sports|TV, a sports media startup she founded to help sports fans discover and connect with women’s sports. What each of these organizations has in common is that there is a community at the very heart of what they do and why they do it. Megan is most passionate about using her experience to help great leaders build high-impact organizations that deliver exceptional results beyond profit. She especially enjoys working with public-private partnerships, membership-driven organizations, game changing startups, and social impact companies.
Megan is a fierce advocate for gender equality. She is the founder of the The FBomb Breakfast Club - a peer support community of 5,000+ female founders and women business owners that earned a spot as a finalist for Geekwire Newcomer of the Year 2018. Female Founders Alliance (now Graham & Walker) honored her with its first Champion Advocate Award, Seattle Magazine named her a person of influence, and Seattle University School of Law recognized her as one of its notable alumni. Megan is actively involved with FBomb Angels, a community dedicated to activating more women and gender expansive angel investors, and is proud to be a limited partner in several venture capital funds founded and led by women, including funds at Portfolia, First Row Partners, and Graham & Walker.
Today she serves on the University of Washington Nonprofit Management Advisory Board and the Seattle University School of Law Editorial Advisory Board, chairs the King County Bar Association Business Law Section, and advises numerous startups. She has been featured in Geekwire, the Puget Sound Business Journal, Seattle Lawyer, and more, and is a frequent speaker on leadership, community, and the power of failure. She is a two-time winner of The Moth storytelling competition.
Megan is a zealous sports fan, a brunch aficionado, and a champion of public libraries.
