Kelly Melton is selected for her outstanding leadership and commitment within her profession

I’m pleased to welcome Kelly into this exceptional group of professional women. Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.

The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Kelly Melton as a 2017-2018 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business entrepreneurship. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 850,000 members, a thriving eChapter and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I’m pleased to welcome Kelly into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”

Prior to starting her company, Ms. Melton was in the IT/engineering field for 15 years. She became very frustrated with her career, so she decided to make a change. Her business partner has 28+ years in large commercial construction and also wanted to make a change. They both saw the opportunity to spin up a company, so they did. Ms. Melton always wanted to start and run her own company, and four years ago was the perfect opportunity.

While Ms. Melton’s partner runs field operations, she runs the business side of Master Metal Builders LLC. According to Ms. Melton, to be an excellent engineer, one must understand business and business flow. Because of her technical background, transitioning into her current position was not that difficult. Ms. Melton very much enjoys a challenge, and making a career switch like this was exciting. In addition to running the business side of her organization, Ms. Melton teaches leadership, communication and technical skills to their lead people, so they can be the best leaders they can be.

Ms. Melton finds the most rewarding part about her new career to be the development of her company's team. She and her business partner feel strongly about employees being top priority. In order to bring out the team’s full potential, they believe in giving them the skills, knowledge and tools they need to be successful. Watching them grow and develop into amazing leaders is extremely rewarding and Ms. Melton is excited about the future of her company and team.
