Melody Conner is the SVP of Sales at Soylent
and a veteran sales executive with demonstrated expertise in rapidly growing,
consumer product goods companies. She joined the Soylent team in September of
2017 after most recently holding the role of Executive Vice President at DRY
Soda Company, where she was the driving force for their explosive revenue
growth. She was an early employee at CytoSport, the makers of Muscle Milk, and
was critical to the company’s tremendous success. As their VP of Retail Sales
she guided CytoSport through their acquisition by Hormel Foods and then went on
to be the VP of the US Club Channel at Hormel.
In her first year at Soylent, Melody
successfully transitioned the brand from a direct-to-consumer company to a
brand sold at more than 13,000 retail locations including Walmart, Target,
7-Eleven. In addition to managing our growth into traditional retail she also
oversees our sales strategy on Amazon globally. Melody works to find win-win
solutions for retail and ecommerce customers and end consumers driving a true
Omni-channel approach. This strategy, along with her ability to lead highly
engaged, prolific teams, has attributed to Melody’s success.
Due to her success at DRY Soda, Melody was
given the honor of becoming a “Windsor Entrepreneur Fellow” in 2015. As a part of this fellowship, she worked with
leaders from all over the world at Windsor Castle in the UK in order to bring
business innovation to cross-cultural dialogues. In 2016, Melody was named as a
“40 Under 40” Honoree by the Puget Sound Business Journal.
You may assume Melody spends every waking
moment transitioning startups into industry leaders, but she spends just as
much time with her two children Madelyn and Jake in Seattle, Washington. She
also occasionally finds time to go skiing and fishing with her husband Rob, as
well as volunteer with Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Cystic Fibrosis
