2017 Business Person of the Year Awarded to Megan Goetz
Our fourth feature of the 2017 business awards highlights Business Person of the Year Megan Goetz. Goetz is a partner and attorney at Pence and MacMillan LLC and was voted by LCBA membership to win the 2017 award.
The Business Person of the Year is someone who has been in business for five years. Moreover, this person demonstrates leadership in a local business. The leadership must extend to peer groups and the community of Laramie. She also consistently involves herself in service to local organizations and her service has been noted throughout her years in the business community. An additional requirement of the recipient includes positively contributing to the quality of life in Laramie.
The above paragraph summarizes the award criteria as well as it summarizes Goetz qualifications for the award. The criteria are carried out in Goetz day to day life by being a strong leader in the local and state legal community. She’s a leader in her attorney and partner position at Pence and MacMillan by serving clients in the areas of civil litigation and transactional law. Her service work is visible as she serves on the Wyoming Business Council Board and is a Laramie Rotary Club member and past president. She also has served as past chairs of the Grande Le Fleur, Ivinson Memorial Foundation and Laramie Economic Development Corporation. Beyond those qualifying factors for Business Person of the Year, she is involved with numerous professional associations including Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association, the Wyoming State Board of Law Examiners and the Albany County Bar Association.
Despite all her hard work, Goetz was still surprised to hear she had won the award.
“I couldn’t be more honored,” said Goetz, “and shocked!”
She attributes the win to other aspects that have made her successful while noting her fellow nominees were remarkable.
“My firm is incredible. My family is incredible,” said Goetz. “This town is incredible!”
And she notes that without the support of her firm and the community, community mindfulness cannot happen, but with mindfulness and support, a lot in Laramie can happen. And she will continue to encourage that support and be that support.
All the while, she is thankful to have received the honor of 2017 Business of the Year.
“From my heart,” said Goetz. “Thank you so very much to the LCBA and its members.”
