About Us

Thomas Mele Headshot
Thomas Mele, Ph.D., Owner and Principal, Mele Group

Mele Group is a business development consultancy founded in 2014, with the sole purpose of helping businesses reach their full potential and achieve remarkable business results.

Thomas was born an engineer and lived his whole life with an engineer’s spirit. You may know engineers; you can tell them because they are people that believe there is a solution to every problem and that they can always take something and make it better.

Thomas received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Delaware and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University. He then spent 25 years in the Semiconductor Industry at two Fortune 500 companies in many diverse and challenging roles from engineer, engineering manager, factory manager, R&D lab director, chief marketing officer, business general manager, to head of new business development.

Thomas is a systems thinker, a person who sees a business as a system consisting of leaders, strategy, customers, information, people, and processes that all work together to make an enterprise either succeed or fail. Throughout his career, Thomas built a reputation and a track record of success as a man that can take ownership for a complex business challenge, identify the critical few issues that must be addressed, then develop and execute action plans to meet his objectives on time and to budget.

When a client hires Thomas, they get a non-equity partner to work side-by-side with them to identify and put in place the critical operational capabilities they need for their business to reach its full potential.

Testimonials For Mele Group

  • Thomas took the time to thoroughly understand my objectives for the workshop and the subtle sensitivities within our team environment, then he designed and delivered a high quality, professional, engaging program that has impacted the team in a powerful, positive way. I was very pleased with the result.
