Meet Leslie and Gregg!

Leslie Fournier and Gregg McLachlan.Hey there, we are Leslie Fournier and Gregg McLachlan. We love town life! And we’re excited to see so much enthusiasm out there today among towns embracing the challenges of rising to a brighter future. We joined forces to create Your Town Rising because it’s a natural fit for both of us and our 10+ years of helping towns, businesses and organizations be successful. Sure, you’ve heard all these buzzwords before: placemaking, public art, cultural tourism, social media and marketing. But you probably haven’t heard about it from folks who actually have the experience and track record of doing it in towns.
