Class of 2019 Forty Under 40 Meagan Kinmonth-Bowman Founder & Managing Partner Stonehenge Technology Labs

Retail, shopper behavior and computer science. Meagan Kinmonth-Bowman loves those topics.

She is immersed in all three at Stonehenge. The business was stood up earlier this year as the technology and data science arm of OneStone Solutions Group, an e-commerce intelligence firm founded in 2017.

Kinmonth-Bowman and business partner Bill Waitsman own both companies. Together, their goal is to turn e-commerce into large manufacturers’ competitive advantage by working across multiple retailer platforms.

Stonehenge employs a team of a dozen (and growing) high-level developers and engineers who also work in Denver, Minneapolis and Seattle.

Kinmonth-Bowman has been writing code-based logic for more than a decade and has consulted several large CPG companies in executing successful Amazon strategies.

In Northwest Arkansas, she previously developed CPG e-commerce strategies while working for Hallmark Cards, The Mars Agency and The Harvest Group before partnering with Waitsman — The Harvest Group’s co-founder — to start her own business.

She previously helped start two companies that had successful exits. One of those was a business that evolved into Summersalt, a direct-to-consumer retail/technology company that sells swimwear.

Kinmonth-Bowman moved to Northwest Arkansas from Missouri in 2013. She earned a degree in philosophy in 2003 from St. Louis University and an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis.

She is an active adviser to the University of Arkansas’ McMillon Innovation Studio and a supporter of Young Life, a Christian teen mentoring program.

Married with two children, Kinmonth-Bowman is an autism advocate.
