She worked with Sony launching the 1st CD's and Walkman's, Sky TV when it 1st launched, the BAFTA's, Oscars and the list goes on. Melinda sold her business in the 90's, but she didn't stop there, her career carried on. She is now the proud owner of Manitou an classic sailing yacht once owned by JFK which she races every summer. Learnt to ski, moved to Verbier and started renovating a Tuscan farmhouse, which has taken her 18 years. Melinda has serious girl power!
