About the event
Join us for networking, education, building relationships, and hearing from Nicole Preston, General Manager, The Woodlands Community Impact Newspaper.
Nicole Preston has adored The Woodlands from the time she moved to the community with her family in 1994. Nicole is a 2001 graduate of The Woodlands High School and The Aveda Institute. She started her business career in banking as a bank teller where she quickly rose through the ranks working for Amegy Bank, BBVA Compass Bank, and Edward Jones, and later became Assistant Vice President Branch Manager of Icon Bank.
Nicole exited the finance sector in 2015 to pursue a career with Community Impact Newspaper and launched the company’s 8th edition in Houston for the Conroe/Montgomery community in April 2015. After entrenching Community Impact in that market, Nicole took advantage of the opportunity to return to her hometown of The Woodlands, where she became a top salesperson. Because of her knowledge and passion for The Woodlands community, Nicole was promoted to General Manager of The Woodlands edition of Community Impact Newspaper, the largest edition in the company, in the Fall of 2019. Nicole has been recognized by her company for her contributions with their ‘Passion’ stone and ‘Faith’ stone.
Nicole serves on the Advisory Council at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, The Woodlands Chamber Executive Leadership Council, Business Advocacy Council, and formerly the Lone Star College Small Business Development Center Advisory Council. She is on The Woodlands Chamber marketing committee and the marketing subcommittee for Memorial Hermann’s In the Pink of Health. Her most recent accomplishments include simultaneously winning 2021 Newspaper of the Year and General Manager of the Year for Community Impact Newspaper, joining the Leadership Montgomery County board of directors for the 22’-25’ term after graduating in the class of 2020, and serving as Vice President of Signature Events for her entire term on The Woodlands Area Chamber board of directors. Nicole and her daughter are members of The Woodlands United Methodist Church where she regularly volunteers her time. She is a member of Interfaith Young Professionals and has the opportunity to serve with like-minded leaders that understand you have to serve others first to make a lasting impact.
