Mel, Crisis Communications Coordinator

"Living in such a unique community with so many wonderful benefits provides a lifestyle that is hard to beat."

With more than 30 years in the industry, Texas native Mel counts the last 15 months with Saudi Aramco as among the best. "With an opportunity to help build a world-class crisis communications program, I've learned about doing business in different ways while achieving excellent results. A standout experience was a spill drill in Egypt, where we worked with different government agencies and developed strong working relationships."

Mel and his wife Julie, with grown children, welcomed the opportunity to try the Saudi Aramco expat experience. "We enjoy the slower pace of life and becoming friends with expats from all over the world," Mel says. "When our son visited recently, he said, 'Why didn't we come sooner so I could've grown up here?'"

When they want to pick up the pace, Mel and Julie have plenty of choices within the community or beyond the horizon. "We've made more friends here than we've ever had, and the recreational opportunities in the community have provided a quality of life that we've never experienced before – there's something fun for everyone," Mel says.

Taking advantage of extended vacations means extra time for family visits and travel to exotic destinations. For Julie, the favorite so far has been a trip to Sri Lanka. "We've traveled to places I could only dream of in the past," Mel says.
