We are really excited to announce that Melanie Taylor is joining The Achievement Centre as an Associate. Melanie will be part of Murray Smith’s team, but given she is located in St. Thomas, we expect she will have opportunities to work with many members of the TAC team in southern Ontario.
Melanie has two degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and has first-hand experience working in high growth family-run businesses. She also understands the intricacies of business start-ups, having been involved in starting and running a couple of them in retail and in training. Through her education and experience she has developed knowledge and skills in the areas of leadership, sales, business management, continuous improvement, auditing, governance, and strategic planning.
Melanie is the current Board Chair at the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital, and has other extensive community volunteer experience as well. And she does all this while being a busy mom to two even busier children! She has been a participant in TAC development programs herself, so comes to us with a good understanding of our business and the value of our work.
Welcome to the team Melanie!
