A writer and strategist at heart, Jane Melvin founded the company in 2002 as a way to have a broader influence on business and brands than she could working in just one place. Her first “corporate” job was in a start up real estate consulting firm (sewing canvas boat covers didn't exactly work out) doing feasibility projects and marketing plans. Her last one was as a senior officer at a Fortune 500 company, where her charge was… strategic innovations. She found her calling bridging her operational appreciation and experience with companies like McDonald’s and Darden Restaurants with her natural marketing instincts that she had applied to the marketplace at companies like Starbucks and Leo Burnett.
With an MBA from the Yale University School of Management, a BA from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, an internship in the British House of Commons, and as a recipient of the prestigious Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs, Jane brings powerful energy and a diverse spectrum of experience as a backdrop for tackling clients’ business problems.
