While taking accounting classes in high school, the subject matter came easily to Melanie King. “I decided to pursue my accounting degree and set a goal to be a CFO eventually,” she says. She met that goal at The Hagerman Group, where she oversees the company’s financial aspects, from day-to-day accounting to overall strategy. Also, Melanie is responsible for the information technology and human relations departments.

Melanie’s role gives her the opportunity to apply her experience in construction finance while staying up-to-date on the latest regulations and trends. “The Hagerman Group has a great environment,” says Melanie. “It allows me to bring my skills, perspectives, and ideas to the table, yet I’m also always challenged to learn something new.”

Hardworking and positive, Melanie is passionate about empowering the next generation of women. “It’s important for girls to know they can do whatever they want, not just the traditionally female-oriented professions,” she says.

When she’s not working, Melanie enjoys whatever interests her daughter. “Right now, it’s swimming,” she says. “We also love to travel and have new and exciting experiences.”
