Friend. Colleague. Visionary
IN MEMORY OF
Record Your Video Remarks
Thank you to everyone who recorded a tribute video in honor of Megan.
Courageous visionary leader, and entrepreneur, Megan Pulliam passed away on December 30, 2022, in Cocoa, Florida. The beloved co-founder of ArcSource Group, Inc. built the organization around her firm belief that people are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole. Megan formed ArcSource (originally named Webworks Design) with her long-time business partner, Kate Perry, in 2000 to help non-profits and small businesses with affordable and secure IT solutions built on open-source platforms. During this time, Megan loved building PCs, laying network cables, and managing hosting servers.
Under 22 years of Megan’s leadership, ArcSource evolved from a small web design firm to a multi-million-dollar company providing federal agencies with program management, training development/delivery, mission readiness, and health-related support services. While web design is no longer the company’s primary focus, Megan remained committed to supporting IT solutions accessible to people with disabilities. Her commitment and vision are reflected in ArcSource’s mobile application, TalentSpring®, the only mobile-first Section 508-compliant learning and knowledge management system available on the market.
Megan was a caring and committed leader who helped her team see themselves and others more clearly, learn new ways to respond in critical situations, build more productive relationships, and achieve their individual goals. Under her guidance, the ArcSource team successfully accomplished mission objectives for customers. She believed in close collaboration, sharing new ideas, creating innovations, and strengthening relationships by delivering solutions that exceeded customers’ expectations.
Megan was a truly holistic thinker with the gift of a “golden brain” – equally creative, artistic, logical, and methodical. She was passionately knowledgeable on a wide range of topics and would happily engage others in shared passions. She was warm, funny, and kind and treated everyone like a long-lost friend. She was so incredibly knowledgeable and yet humble and eager to constantly learn new things. It was not uncommon for her to talk about her nature photo shoots and guitar lessons, but then move to a discussion of a multi-tab Excel spreadsheet with complex formulas that worked like a charm. Megan’s commitment to life-long learning is reflected in the numerous certifications she earned over the course of her career. She was a certified Project Management Professional, Professional Co-Active Coach, and a Master Trainer. During her career, Megan also earned several IT and industry certifications. This training only enhanced her ability to be patient and listen and bring presence and intention to her interactions.
Megan was born on April 5, 1967, to Wilbon H. and Mary J. Pulliam, deceased, in Dadeville, Alabama. Her family moved to Plano, Texas, in 1982. She attended the University of Texas at Austin, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology in 1993. Megan was a proud member of the Texas-Exes, the Austin UT alumni association. One of her first jobs was as an assignment reporter and copyeditor at The Dallas Morning News. After moving to Philadelphia, she served as a senior staff organizer for the community-based Regional Council of Neighborhood Organizations. Before co-founding ArcSource in 2000, Megan worked for the Maryland Department of Health & Mental Hygiene as a senior web and network administrator.
Megan will be forever cherished and missed by her brother, niece, great-nephew, partner, a host of family, friends, colleagues, and her ArcSource family.
