VP - Global Enablement: Process & Capabilities McCormick
Dan Melchior has acquired over 20 years' of multi-function, multi-industry expertise as both a practitioner and consultant for companies such as Luxottica, Cemex, Universal Studios/Music, Southern Wine & Spirits, Best Buy, Lowes, and Snyder's-Lance.
Dan's deep experience rising through the Shared Services ranks to lead teams in the strategy development, design, implementation, and optimization of Shared Services centers allows him to see an organization's vision for the future through the lens of contextual reality. Motivating people is what Dan enjoys most about Shared Services, and he’s honed in on the commonalities across sectors and lines of business that can move teams forward and connect with a vision. He’s witnessed the ways that those with an entrepreneurial spirit and ability to adapt to change succeed in these initiatives.
With a penchant for making the complex simple, Dan shares his pioneering experience in his narrative book, Shared Services: A Manager’s Journey (Wiley), his keynotes, and his blog. His ability to tell stories in humorous and memorable ways certainly makes him a sought after business speaker. An evangelist for Shared Services as a viable means for keeping jobs on-shore, Dan says, “Shared Services does not equal outsourcing.”
