Melvin Burns

Account Manager, Sourcing

The southern gentleman.

Melvin brings over 10 years of industry experience to his position with NHS Global Events. Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Melvin’s first foray into the industry was as a Travel Sales Specialist at AAA Vacations. This starting point of his career helped to inspire Melvin’s insatiable wanderlust and encouraged him to journey to 15 countries across three continents. Following that position, Melvin worked on the hotel side of things in a variety of important roles, most recently as Catering & Conference Services Manager with the Four Seasons Chicago.

With his strong ambition and passion for learning, Melvin excels in any endeavor he takes on. He is passionate about people and easily forms connections with everyone he meets, allowing him the knowledge, empathy, and trust that our clients can rely on.

Melvin’s love of learning extends to his personal life, and he constantly seeks out new learning opportunities. His passions also include travel, history, food, and interior design. Outside of work, Melvin loves spending time with friends, film festivals, beach days, cooking, comedy shows, and street festivals.
