“I’ll never forget interviewing Melisa over 15 years ago; she was young, bright-eyed, confident, and ready to conquer the automotive world," he said. "Today, I understand why she had such confidence even with the odds stacked against her. She has held almost every position on the variable side of the house and she has excelled every step of the way. Melisa is now a very successful general manager at Findlay Volkswagen in Henderson and is a shining star within Findlay Automotive. Melisa’s competitive spirit and great leadership ability make her a very deserving recipient of this Automotive News 40 under 40 selection.
