Do it Best names new Regional Sales Manager
FORT WAYNE, IN—Do it Best Corp. has announced the promotion of Mike Melchi to Regional Sales Manager, effective immediately. Formerly a Territory Sales Manager, Melchi will now be responsible for leading a team of retail professionals who are dedicated to working with member-owners in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio to increase their sales and profits.

He joined Do it Best in 2004 as an Associate Sales Consultant, earning promotions as a Member Services Supervisor and Territory Sales Manager. These experiences provided him with a deep understanding of the challenges store owners face as well as the opportunities they have to support their local communities.
