Megan Tsui has served as the Executive Director of Red Wing Downtown Main Street in Red Wing, MN since 2016. She worked with the organization as a consultant for many years before the director position opened up and she dove right in.
One of her first tasks as the official director was to write an essay that would get the town into the top 5 of the Small Business Revolution contest to win $500,000. Red Wing came in second in that very tight race, and it helped Megan see that when a community believes in itself, it can do amazing things.
Megan also owns a marketing and communications company called Unleashed Consultants that specializes in social media and digital communication strategies for non-profits.
Megan and her husband Kent live in an 1875 Italianate Victorian house on the edge of downtown with their dog Sally Mae and cats Lucy, Newman, and Chewy.
Megan knows that working to keep downtowns vibrant and alive isn’t an easy task, and hopes that by starting this podcast, we’ll all be inspired, educated, and informed by learning about how others are making big and small things happen in downtowns across the US.
