Melillo Consulting has announced Steve Tepedino as its new company President, effective August 1, 2009. With over 25 years of experience running large and small channel companies, previously as President of Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, and most recently as President and CEO of Channel Savvy, a management consulting firm focused on VARs, Tepedino will manage day-to-day operations to drive organic growth and collaborate with CEO, Mark Melillo, to explore growth through acquisition.
"We are actively investing in our business to take advantage of the opportunities we see in the marketplace. Steve's expertise will enable us to broaden our options for growth, while increasing our focus on strategic relationships," said Mark Melillo. As Tepedino transitions into the lead operator for the company, Melillo will have more time to spend in the field, ensuring maximum alignment and value creation. "Our customers and vendors are the cornerstone of our business. Cultivating the relationships we've developed over the past 21 years is where I want to invest most of my time," said Melillo.
Tepedino commented, "I've worked in the channel my entire career, and vendors are relying on VARs now more than ever. Companies like Melillo Consulting that wisely invest time, money and people to create more value for their customers, partners and employees can thrive. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to participate in its success."
Melillo added, "Our customers and our vendors have come to expect the best from us - in our solutions, our relationships and our people. That's why they work with us. Hiring Steve builds on the investments we've recently made, reinforcing our commitment to attracting and retaining the best talent in the industry. We are very happy to welcome Steve to our team and we anticipate much success in the coming years."
