Meet Melinda Speer! Speer has been with Hugg & Hall for more than 23 years and works as a Fleet Maintenance Coordinator at the company’s Little Rock, Ark., location. She is absolutely essential to the process of ensuring that rental equipment is maintained and ready-for-operation before machines are delivered to job sites.
“Demanding and challenging,” said Speer, when asked to describe her job at Hugg & Hall. “My main job duty is to keep the rental equipment ready to rent by working with the service department to ensure a quick and cost-effective repair.”
Speer said that the things that have motivated her to stay at the company for so long are the relationships she’s made throughout her time, an allegiance to the organization and an affection for what she does.
“Over the past 23 years I have built a lot of good relationships and made some really good friends,” said Speer. “There are two things that have kept me at Hugg & Hall: loyalty and I love what I do.”
Speer is a native of Paragould, Ark., but has lived in Little Rock for more than 30 years. She is married to her husband of 25 years, Doug, and has one daughter and two granddaughters. Outside of work, she enjoys going to the gym and spending time at the lake.
When asked, Speer said that her coworkers might be surprised to know that she can barefoot waterski and was a competitive bodybuilder for five years.
The company would like to send out a huge thank you to Speer for all of her hard work and dedication throughout the years!
