Melanie Smalley

Spectrum Catering, Concessions & Events 


Melanie has 30-years of experience in the hospitality industry. Melanie’s background consists of several years in the hotel/resort sales industry but most notably as a 27-year tenured Spectrum associate. Melanie was introduced to Spectrum in 1998, then a new mother looking for an exciting opportunity in a unique environment. Spectrum proved to provide both.

Melanie’s Spectrum career began modestly working on a variety of local catering projects; from proposals and menu creation to hands-on production in off premise catering. It wasn’t long before Spectrum experienced significant growth, that Melanie found her career experiencing the same. Melanie was given the opportunity to work with the PGA Tour on several notable projects and shortly thereafter cultivated a partnership with famed Cirque du Soleil. Both are still her primary focus and currently produce $35 million in annual revenue. Melanie continues to focus on growing Spectrum’s portfolio and is proud to be a part of Spectrum’s industry leadership.

Melanie is a native Texan and is married to her best friend and husband Dave and has one son, Cory. In her free time, she enjoys working out, reading, traveling and watching the Coogs, Astros and Texans.
