The KR Group is pleased to welcome Meghan Nelson to its sales and marketing team.
Meghan fills the new position of content manager, and she is helping The KR Group publish articles about its products and services.
Marketing and Sales Manager Maggie Damitio explained hiring a dedicated content manager was the next sensible step in growing the company’s marketing practice and online presence.
“I’m thrilled to have Meghan onboard,” she continued. “Hiring her gives us the opportunity to spread the wealth of knowledge that our subject matter experts have and transparently communicate with the community in-depth about the products and services The KR Group offers.”
Before joining The KR Group, Meghan worked at The Daily News in Greenville, Michigan, which is what brought her to West Michigan in 2016.
“The Daily News was my first job out of college, and I learned a lot about writing on a daily deadline and turning subjects I was learning about into articles,” she said. “I am excited to build on that skillset while working for The KR Group. I’ve always loved writing, so this job is a great match for me.
Prior to moving to Grand Rapids, she spent the previous three years earning her bachelor’s degree in journalism at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti.
If you see Meghan outside of work, she said you’ll most likely see her babywearing her 1-year-old son, Atlas.
“Babywearing started as something I needed to do just to eat during the first few weeks my son was born, and I just loved everything about it,” she said.
Outside of work, Meghan enjoys spending her free time with her husband, Aaron, and son at their home in Byron Center.
“We have two cats, a dog, and more than a dozen chickens, so a lot of my time is spent taking care of animals and people,” she said. “However, when I do have free time, I enjoy being outdoors.”
During the winter, you’ll typically find Meghan bundled up under a blanket rewatching New Girl, but during the summer she enjoys trips to Frederik Meijer Gardens or Holland State Park.
If you stop by The KR Group’s Grand Rapids office, make sure to say hi to Meghan and ask her what articles she’s working on.
