Mel is Honeypot's founder and Boss Lady. She set up Honeypot back in 2011, having worked in recruitment for 15 years previously, with the aim of establishing a market leading consultancy in the South doing exactly what it says on the tin - consulting. Out of work she is a busy mum of two teenagers and office dog Barney, and loves the outdoors. You'll often find her out walking, or more recently running which has become her new 'thing'.
