After graduation, she worked her way up to national sales manager and then spent a few years at The Light Group managing corporate events. In 2009 she moved to Chicago to serve as regional sales manager for the entire MGM Resorts portfolio, but returned to her roots to open The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas nearly six years ago. Bragging rights: “I developed a revenue-forecasting and budgeting tool to evaluate business and it has now been adopted by the resort’s group segment.” What colleagues say: “Megan was put into the difficult position of managing a team of veteran sales people who were older than her,” says her colleague Brian Payne, a senior account executive. “She is a great business evaluator and a shining example of what hard work and determination can accomplish.”
