During her tenure at Torani, Melanie has led the vision and strategic direction of multiple business models, expanding customers, products and market approaches across the United States and to over 50 countries. She’s thrived in helping scale the organization through growth, business processes, new technologies, team-building and best professional practices. Valuing people through all tiers of the business has helped her create a rich work culture for the entire organization. With a mantra of, “Grow, baby, grow,” Melanie has cultivated Torani’s annual revenue growth by an average of 20% each year during her tenure.
In her local community, Melanie has blazed trails in economic development. She is currently involved in the organization, SHE-CAN, to mentor and support young women from Rwanda and Cambodia. Equally committed to the development of low-income youth in South San Francisco, she also serves as an active board member of the Boys & Girls Clubs in San Mateo County.
Melanie earned her B.A. in Economics from U.C. Berkeley and her M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She continues to work closely with both of her alma maters by supporting Cal’s Opportunity Lab in research on income inequality and is a favorite speaker in Stanford’s Managing Growing Enterprises class.
During her down time, Melanie enjoys cycling, art and live music, traveling to learn about new cultures, and sharing good food around the table with family and friends.
