The Island News is proud to announce the addition of Peggy McLenagan as account executive. She brings more than 20 years of experience working in sales and marketing, including seven years with The Boot and The Jet Stream and Bluffton Today. She is familiar with the area and knows how to handle the needs of her clients.
“I am excited to be working for a locally owned small business; and I look forward to showing the benefits of investing in and supporting a quality publication that represents our community,” she said.
Peggy originally hails from Virginia, and she met her husband, Will, when they were both working in Richmond, Va.
In 1992, the dating couple was on vacation in Beaufort when Will proposed to her at Gadsby’s Tavern (now Q on Bay) then they celebrated their engagement at Plums and Bananas (now Luther’s) downtown. They got married and lived in Richmond, but after three years of vacationing in Beaufort, they decided to move here for good.
Will is a former Marine who spent boot camp at Parris Island, and he currently works as the executive chef at Lady’s Island Country Club.
Peggy and her husband love camping, fishing, boating and all outdoor activities. They have two beautiful German Shepherds — Sabre and baby King — who keep them entertained.
