Congratulations are in order for Meador Staffing Services’ former Executive Vice President Melinda Torrison, who has been promoted to President & Chief Operations Officer for the company. Ben Meador, former President, will still remain active in the company as Chairman & CEO.

Melinda joined Meador Staffing full time in 1987 when it was still named Meador-Brady. Prior to coming on board in 1987, she had worked for the company during the summers in several roles, gaining experience in the staffing industry, as well as served in temporary roles for client companies in clerical positions. When she joined Meador-Brady, Melinda started her journey in the role of receptionist, then staffing assistant for the temporary group. Over the past twenty-seven years, she has served in many positions, the most recent being Executive Vice President.

Melinda has served the staffing industry and her community in various leadership roles, including President of the Texas Association of Personnel Consultants (TAPC); President of the Houston Area Association of Personnel Consultants (HAAPC); and Vice President of Inter-City Temporary Associates, a national company with 115 affiliate members. Melinda is also recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow by The Rotary Foundation. She received her certification as a Certified Temporary Specialist by the National Association of Personnel Services in 1997.

Melinda is well-prepared to serve as President & Chief Operations Officer.  “I am dedicated to the well-being and best interest of this company and my family, who has created the legacy of serving our communities for the past 46 years,” Melinda shared.
