CORPSMART was opened in 2015, by owner Melissa Hopton. Her 30-plus years of experience in the industry and her desire to offer competent, personal service inspired her to open her own company. Her daughter, McKenna Weiks grew up at her mother’s side, and throughout her schooling worked in the industry. Now the VP of Business Development, McKenna travels to meet with and support clients throughout the United States.
Since 2015, the company has grown rapidly with plans to continue hiring and growing the team in 2020. Savanah Brock graduated from college with a degree in marketing and public relations. She started as a Customer Service Representative and has recently moved to the marketing team. It was the ideal path to learn the business.
