Q&A with New Employees: April 2019

We want­ed to get to know our new employ­ees and share with our cus­tomers so they can get to know the MHD fam­i­ly bet­ter. We asked them a few ques­tions and here is what they had to say. 

  1. Favorite place to vaca­tion?
  2. If you could eat one meal the rest of your life, what it would be?
  3. Per­son who inspires you the most and why?
  4. Favorite hob­by?
  5. What are you most excit­ed about in your new role at MHD? Or what is your favorite thing about work­ing at MHD?


Michael Melen­dez — Ter­ri­to­ry Sales Man­ag­er


  1. Favorite place to vaca­tion is any­where that’s warm with a beach! Or Dis­ney!
  2. Piz­za with­out any doubt in my mind.
  3. Both my mom and my dad. They have had many obsta­cles and dif­fi­cult times in life and have nev­er once giv­en up or let it get the best of them. Their resilience and adapt­abil­i­ty to any sit­u­a­tion is inspir­ing and had a sig­nif­i­cant impact on who I am as a per­son right now and will con­tin­ue to shape and mold the per­son I am going to be in 5, 10, 20 years.
  4. My favorite hob­by is weightlift­ing and play­ing video games.
  5. I am most excit­ed about con­tin­u­ing to learn more about the indus­try and con­nect­ing with the peo­ple involved in it. From the begin­ning, I have been out of com­fort zone but as the days pass by, I meet and build rela­tion­ships with more peo­ple, I gain more con­fi­dence, and most impor­tant­ly I gain more knowl­edge that will help me get to where I need to be.

  1. Brig­an­tine, NJ
  2. That’s easy! King of Piz­za, Cher­ry Hill, NJ, shred­ded sausage piz­za & a coke.
  3. My moth­er.  Our fam­i­ly was thrown a curve­ball with the untime­ly death of my father.  My moth­er had to leave her job as a nurse and step into run a busi­ness and raise four chil­dren.  In the 23-years since she has run a suc­cess­ful busi­ness, put mul­ti­ple kids through col­lege, and is a grand­par­ent to four grand­chil­dren.  She could’ve crum­bled at the pres­sure but didn’t and that sticks with me every day.
  4. Podcasting…and for the cheap plug give Sec­tion 247 Pod­cast a lis­ten!
  5. It’s been a year since I’ve come on board at MHD and the thing that  has excit­ed me the most is the “all in” atti­tude of the com­pa­ny.  The lev­el of com­mit­ment to the indus­try, serv­ing in the var­i­ous asso­ci­a­tions and pres­ence at events, is top-notch and can’t be touched by any­one else.

Zach Speers — Ter­ri­to­ry Sales Man­ag­er

  1. Clear­wa­ter Beach FL. I’ve just spent 2+ years liv­ing in Tam­pa Bay and the beach­es are spec­tac­u­lar. Plen­ty of nightlife or qui­et spots for any­thing you’re look­ing to do and a great food scene.
  2. Tacos. It’s a close call with piz­za but there’s just way more options for tacos includ­ing break­fast tacos so that’s the one for me.
  3. My dad. The old­er I get the more I real­ize some of the things he taught me actu­al­ly do make sense. I’ve learned more from him than any­one and con­tin­ue to learn each day
  4. Brew­ing beer. I’ve tak­en most of the last 2 years off while liv­ing in Flori­da but I love the process and con­stant­ly hav­ing new chal­lenges
  5. Learn­ing a new indus­try and help­ing to grow myself and a great com­pa­ny.


Bill Marone — Account­ing Man­ag­er

  1. Any­where with a beach! Fam­i­ly vaca­tions with wife and kids we typ­i­cal­ly go to LBI.
  2. Filet Mignon
  3. Father because of his work eth­ic and strength of char­ac­ter, espe­cial­ly when fac­ing dif­fi­cul­ty.
  4. Any kind of puz­zle (cross­word, jig­saw, brain teasers, etc.)
  5. Like the fam­i­ly atmosphere/culture and the vari­ety of dif­fer­ent projects/assignments involved in my role.
