2010 15-to-Watch (Corporate/Nonprofit): Melissa Perlman


Melissa Perlman

Manager, Public Relations, Office Depot

No one embodies Office Depot’s Taking Care of Business maxim more than Melissa Perlman. As part of Office Depot’s corporate dedication to environmental sustainability, Perlman produced several campaigns that yielded exceptional results.

In particular, her “Grow Greener” campaign secured Office Depot’s role as an environmental leader within the office supply industry though extensive national and localized media pitching. —BM



Typical Day:
“For me, taking care of business includes writing a speech for a senior executive on interview tips for the female business professional; working with Office Depot’s supply chain diversity team on developing and launching a corporate coaching initiative for companies with struggling diversity programs; organizing a ribbon cutting ceremony, press conference and media tour for Office Depot’s new innovative distribution facility; and talking to USA Today, Forbes.com, South Florida Business Journal and Chain Store Age about environmental sustainability.”
