Megan Pope colors outside of the lines. Not bound by the “should’s” and “could’s” of the mundane, she has designed POPE MARKETING & EVENTS with thoughtful detail to locally owned businesses and hospitable tourism practices. In a direct quote from Megan, “community is the heart of this company and the heart of each of our highly experienced, highly energized family of marketing professionals.”
Megan’s education background hails from Gardner-Webb University with degrees in Psychology, Spanish, and American Sign Language and a certification in Meeting and Event Planning from UNC Charlotte. She is currently undertaking classes to complete an MBA with a focus in marketing. This combination has built the foundation for POPE MARKETING & EVENTS in thorough research, multi-lingual/multi-cultural resources, and progressive marketing technology and trends.
Native of the Pinehurst, NC, area, Megan knows from experience the perspective of a transplant – the draws, the challenges, and the beauty of making Cleveland County a home. Megan’s ten years in the marketing and hospitality industry has spanned the length of NC and surrounding states. Her volunteer efforts are concentrated in serving the Cleveland County Travel & Tourism Board, Cleveland County Chamber Ambassadors, Charlotte Chamber, International Live Events Association, and heading the Cleveland County Wedding Industry coalition. From her vast travels and experience, Megan draws inspiration to keep perspective fresh, modern, and advanced.
“Our strategy is to come alongside the client to encourage them to be hands-on in their marketing, making it affordable while maintaining quality control. On any given day, you will find the POPE MARKETING & EVENTS family rolling up their sleeves to build up, in the words of Roger Holland, ‘the very place where [they] live, work, play, and worship.’”
