Drive and Integrity Exemplifies December Core Employee Award Winner Melinda Dechant


Regional Fleet Manager Melinda Dechant goes to work each day with a drive to get her job done well. She is known by her teammates as a hard worker who doesn’t seek recognition or praise, and simply gets the work done with a great attitude.

Melinda started her career with EquipmentShare more than two years ago as a rental coordinator and recently transitioned to working in our fleet division, which helps us source and provide the best equipment for our customers. Several employees sent in nominations for Melinda that all praised her work ethic and professionalism. Here’s what her co-workers had to say: 

“Melinda is a great example of someone with EquipmentShare’s core values,” EquipmentShare Shreveport General Manager Jason Hogg said. “She is always willing to help and goes above and beyond to make sure branches get the fleet they need in order to grow and move forward. She always has a good attitude, even when it's tough. She follows up with the branches and makes sure everything is taken care of.”

“Melinda is an exemplary employee,” Southwest Regional Manager Chris Carrol said. “She is a hard worker and strives to do the best in her field. She is not afraid to ask questions when unsure and will own up to any and all mistakes that she rarely makes. She has earned my respect, as well as the respect of her peers and we are truly lucky to have her as one of our employees.” 

EquipmentShare South Fort Worth General Manager Lee Garza said, ​​”Melinda is one of those rock stars who performs beyond expectations daily and does not expect the spotlight. Every task is performed with a calmness and professionalism that often goes without the appreciation it deserves. She thinks outside the box and does not quit until all options have been exhausted.”

For her unwavering work ethic, drive and integrity, Melinda has landed the honor of December 2021 CORE Employee Award winner. Congratulations, Melinda, and thank you for everything you do!
