Melissa, Wyatt, Clayton and Josh

Meet Melissa Wolf!

Back in 2009, the company Melissa was working for relocated to Atlanta and laid off a bunch of employees.  Unfortunately for Melissa, she was one of them.  She called her husband, Josh, and ironically enough, had him meet her at Carl’s Jr. to discuss the next plan.  After her interview, she was hired on as a staff accountant to work with 100 Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr stores.  In the beginning, she was working under the previous ownership, although still with Buddy and Todd.  The first new acquisition happened 5 months later and that number jumped up to 144 stores.

The previous partnership split up in 2010 and Melissa continued to work with Todd.  In 2013, everyone came back together into the company we are today.  Melissa went from Staff Accountant, to Accounting Manager, to Accounting Director and is currently our Controller here at the Lund Brown Group.  She has been through a lot of change and even more growth to almost 300 stores since her first days with the company.  Melissa now has roughly 20 people who report to her!

Melissa and her husband, Josh, are high school sweethearts and have been together for 19 and a half years and married for 14!  They have two boys, Wyatt, who is nine, and Clayton, who is three.  As a family, they love to go boating, fishing, and camping.

Melissa’s family owns a 1,000 acre ranch in Toponas, CO, which is outside of Steamboat Springs.  It is a working ranch and has been in her family for over 100 years.  They currently have about 150 head of cattle and use the original cabin on the property.  While Melissa and the boys aren’t boating and camping, they are up on the ranch working.  In the summer and fall, they are getting the hay ready for winter and this year had 75 tons!  During the winter months, they use horses and wagons to feed all of the cows.  This provides her family with year round work!
