CEO & Founder at EvolveMKD
Megan Driscoll is the CEO + Founder of EvolveMKD, an award-winning public relations and digital marketing agency based in New York City. She has 21 years of experience working with brands in the healthcare, prestige beauty and lifestyle industries. Key to her success is Megan’s ability to always find a way. Megan finds potential in every opportunity for her clients through determination, relationships, agility, and sound strategy coupled with creative spirit. Megan is widely recognized for her work, earning a spot on PRWeek’s 40 Under 40 List, being honored as one of 12 women chosen for The Ernst and Young Entrepreneurial Winning Women class of 2018, featured on Crain’s New York Notable Women’s Business Owner’s 2021 List and recently, Ragan’s 2022 PR Professional of the Year, as well as deemed a 2022 Woman of Distinction by both MM+M and PRWeek. Additionally, Megan was the first ever recipient of the Early Career Achievement Award from her alma mater, the University of Chicago.
Megan has cultivated relationships with physicians, consumers, key opinion leaders and tastemakers to gain her clients national level recognition. Client experience includes L’Oreal, Allergan, IT Cosmetics, HydraFacial, Clarisonic, Endo Aesthetics, CooperVision and Villeroy + Boch. At the end of the day, Megan wants to surround herself with smart, passionate people who value integrity–people who are serious about their work, but don’t take themselves too seriously. This philosophy is at the heart of founding EvolveMKD. At EvolveMKD, Megan provides day-to-day client counsel, strategic direction and a savvy eye for what makes news and who can make the news happen. Megan is very passionate about philanthropy. In addition to donating 10% of EvolveMKD’s profits to charity annually, and hosting quarterly volunteer opportunities for staff at nonprofits, Megan serves on the Board of Directors at Safe Horizon, an organization that provides aid to victims of violence.
Prior to EvolveMKD, Megan was the President of Behrman Communications, where she managed agency operations, mentored staff, and provided strategic advisement for 30+ clients. Megan has also held senior roles at Emanate, Lippe Taylor, Fleishman Hillard and Euro RSCG Life PR. When she’s not building brands and making media headlines, she’s a pasta connoisseur who refuses to operate a moving vehicle. Megan also held childhood aspirations of becoming President of the United States or a hair stylist. She realized she’s settled on a smart compromise between the two.
Megan holds a B.A. in Public Policy from the University of Chicago.
