Colle McVoy Names New Chief Financial Officer

Megan Flynn Portrait


2024 February 15

“Megan Flynn has a long track record of building finance teams everyone wants to work with, and that’s a critical skill for an agency hyper-focused on enduring relationships,” shared Colle McVoy CEO Christine Fruechte. “Megan’s broad experience — with Ernst & Young, General Mills, Target and Blu Dot — coupled with her growth mindset will have an immediate impact at Colle McVoy. She’ll be responsible for reimagining the finance department of the future to support the agency’s explosive growth and reinvention that includes new compensation models and revenue streams, AI applications, system upgrades and more.”

Flynn takes over from Lisa Miller, who retired after nearly 24 years of serving Colle McVoy in the CFO position.

“What drew me to Colle McVoy is how the agency has embedded commitments to equity, representation and sustainability into its business plan, underpinning the creative output,” said Flynn. “The agency does meaningful work that impacts brands and even shapes culture. In this role, I am excited to be part of the amazing work that has already begun. Through financial stewardship, we can amplify the impact we achieve for our clients, the broader business community and world.”

Most recently Flynn led all accounting functions at Blu Dot. Prior, she led teams shaping Target’s finance technology solutions in partnership with technology and data science, implementing new tech solutions minimizing guest friction, and increased compliance and auditability. She also took on international controller duties, directing the integration of Sherwin-Williams and Valspar, overseeing a combined $4 billion+ in global business revenue while architecting an organizational structure to support operations across six continents.

According to Flynn, her life with numbers was influenced by a unique math lesson in eighth grade.

“Instead of writing the number eight, our teacher had us use the omega symbol. Over the months of long exercise, I started to understand numbers as concepts used to solve complex problems. As a business partner, I want to help various stakeholders make solid decisions and capitalize on business opportunities. The financial numbers tell the story of what we stand for, what we invest in and the value our work brings to brands. I am eager to do my part in telling and shaping Colle McVoy’s financial story at a major moment of inflection for the business.”

Flynn’s appointment follows a string of senior hires for Colle McVoy — including Ciro Sarmiento and Katie Walley-Wiegert, who have taken on chief creative officer and head of comms and marketing duties, respectively — as the agency seeks to capitalize on a historic 2023.

Colle McVoy was named Adweek’s Midsize Agency of the Year and received B Corp Certification in 2023. It also welcomed the following clients to its roster in the same year: the ANNIKA Foundation, CRAFTSMAN, The Goddard School, HARIBO and La-Z-Boy.

Continuing its new business streak, the agency announced Crystal Farms as its latest AOR client in early 2024.
