Guest Name: Melanie Jefferies
Guest Business: Milhouse Development, LLC
In this episode of Black Businesses Matter, I talk with Melanie Jefferies, who is currently the Executive Vice President of the Midwest Region at Milhouse Engineering and Construction and a Principal Owner of Milhouse Development, LLC. The Milhouse family of businesses, founded by Melanie's father in 2001, has since blossomed into an international construction and development company. She speaks to the big shoes she had to fill taking over this business from her father. Melanie also speaks to the importance of not following a path presented to you but creating your own. The path she forged led to Millhouse Development, LLC something that was wholly hers.
Melanie speaks of her plan to improve Chicago’s south side by utilizing the commercial mix-use sector to drive people to these communities, thus, ensuring that the south side is a destination for tourists. She does this by creating a partnership between big businesses and little businesses. Making sure these big businesses understand that to be where they need to give back to these communities.
If you are looking for unique ways to improve your community, or are a business looking for commercial retail and commercial office space in Bronzeville, this is the episode for you.
