Location: Fayetteville, AR
Service Group: Strategic Capacity Services
A little over three years ago, Melissa Lindsey brought her 14 years of industry experience and amazing work ethic with her to open and manage Dupré’s ninth Strategic Capacity Services Branch located in Fayetteville, AR. This branch is now one of the company’s Top 3 branches.
When Melissa began her role as Branch Manager in 2018, she had a team of three employees with a main focus on eCommerce freight. Fast forward to today, Melissa manages sixteen team members, an office that operates 24 hours a day, and guides the team on providing great customer service for their diverse customer base. She juggles all of this while focusing on forward-thinking solutions for her team and the company. She says her proudest moment was when the branch lost their largest customer and was able to recover the same level of profitability prior to the loss much faster than anticipated. It’s not a wonder why her branch was named Branch of the Year by Dupré two years in a row. Melissa credits this win and her love of Dupré to the team atmosphere fostered within the Dupré culture.
“Melissa has proven time and again that her work ethic is paying off to improve her employees’ performance, her branch’s growth, and Dupré as a whole. She is one of our most valuable assets.” says Randy Robles, Regional Operations Director, Dupré Logistics.
As if Melissa wasn’t busy enough at the branch, she keeps busy with her four children (ages 23, 21, 19 and 5). In her free time Melissa makes hair bows for her five-year-old daughter, friends and family. She enjoys reading, outdoor time and hiking trails. When asked what was the one thing she could not live without, she said it was her cell phone. It is not surprising that she always wants to be connected – as she is happiest when she is with her family.
