Austin FC Senior Manager of Marketing Megan Lindon was named this year for her work ahead of the club's debut MLS season. According to Forbes, Lindon "oversaw the execution of marketing strategies including brand campaign and retail partnerships." Her Forbes 30 under 30 bio says she developed the "Uniform for Austin" campaign and created the Verde Van, the club's mobile retail store.
The "Uniform for Austin" campaign was among the beginning steps toward growing Austin FC's brand focused on epitomizing the city's vibe and culture.
Austin FC merchandise flew off the shelves at unprecedented rates from the MLS store, from the Verde Van and later from the brick-and-mortar stores. Forbes reported that Lindon's efforts helped the club make Austin the league's top-selling club on MLSStore.com across all product categories in 2021.
Austin was also the only Major League Soccer team to sell out every home match of the 2021 season.
Other prominent names on the Forbes 30 Under 30 sports list include: Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker and U.S. gymnast Sunisa Lee.
