Melissa Pacheco

Executive Recruiter


Clients have called Melissa the “Recruiter Extraordinaire” for going beyond the job description to focus on what clients’ want to contribute and accomplish, and helping them hire great e-Commerce and Digital Marketers who can make a real difference in their organizations. Her goal is to help businesses and individuals achieve success, and that often happens through connecting clients with candidates who, on the surface, may not seem like a perfect match but who have the capabilities clients need. She listens, coaches and asks questions, so that she not only understand a person’s experience and skills, but also their individual talents, values and aspirations. Through this ability to listen with empathy, Melissa helps clients visualize their success and discover people and opportunities that bring more to their organizations than they’d ever thought possible.

Through her years of experience, Melissa combines a deep knowledge of all aspects of e-commerce & digital marketing recruiting, an extensive talent network, an intuitive skill for assessing individual capabilities and an understanding of complex client needs. e-Commerce and Digital Marketing are her areas of expertise, and she’s demonstrated an ability to recruit successfully for hard-to-fill positions and organizations going through significant change. Before joining the Chameleon Collective, Melissa spent the last 10 years at SapientNitro & Digitas, recruiting in a variety of areas, from Executive Searches, e-Commerce/Digital Marketing to Creative Director searches. At SapientNitro, she introduced new technologies to the company’s recruiting efforts, expanded social media outreach, consistently exceeded recruiting targets, and helped the company win the Talent Board’s 2014 CandE Award for great candidate experiences.
