Megan Van Petten
Bio

I am a faith based visionary who has spent over 20 years transforming non-profit associations, foundations, & societies into best of class organizations. I am driven by a passion to serve others which is fueled by my Catholic upbringing. This has inspired me to create an organization that provides our partner-clients with a hands-on, personal experience not typically found from other non-profit association management companies. Serving as CEO & President of Van Petten Group (VPG), I oversee all strategic & operational solutions provided to VPG partner-clients.

Being honored by HuffPost as one of the Top 5 Most Influential Women in Fantasy Sports for my work as Director of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, spurred me to launch the Esports Trade Association in 2017. I foresaw the Esports industry to be promising uncharted territory and by bringing the players, teams, leagues, & stakeholders together, I could support the spirit of team collaboration for all involved.

I provide thought leadership as the author of Insights, a publication that highlights strategies for effective association management informed by my experience and Master’s degree in Industrial-Organizational Psychology. I also host a weekly podcast that offers interviews, education and inspiration for bright and talented people in esports, making a difference.
