Melinda Majors, Vice President of People Services
Melinda delivers awesome every day! Luckily, a job well-done at Cinder also makes a difference in people’s lives – for employees, job seekers, and clients alike. Whether it’s working with an employee to develop their career, or connecting talented people with dynamic companies, Melinda leads Cinder’s day-to-day operations with a consistent focus on people and commitment to doing the right thing.
If you pass by Melinda’s office, you can’t miss the “Awesome Board” – A collage of pictures and thankful notes from job-seekers, clients, and community partners. Though it started with just a few employees, the idea caught on quickly within Cinder, and now it’s an office staple, serving as a constant reminder to Melinda and her team of why they do what they do.
A lifetime Oregonian, Melinda can be found spending her free time with her husband and her son, Carter (a.k.a. “Captain Awesome”). Her favorite activities include going to the park and zoo, hosting themed dinner parties, and sneaking in the occasional parental “time-out” to tailgate at Oregon State football games.
