Before becoming an entrepreneur, Melton was a senior vice president for product development for Home Savings of America and a product manager for Sunkist Growers.
He earned his law degree from the Santa Barbara College of Law, his MBA from Claremont Graduate University — Peter F. Drucker School of Management, and his bachelor’s degree in business administration and psychology from Cal State Fullerton.
