Tess Melby

Assistant Director of Product Development

I joined the Animal Adventure team in 2015 where I started as a Product Development Specialist focused on our pet business with Target’s Boots and Barkley brand. After 5 years on the team I am now the Assistant Director of Product Development. I work closely with our marketing, design, and development teams to drive our internal line development. I manage the company calendar to create transparency between teams and hold all team members accountable to our important timelines. I also handle all development for Target-both owned brand and national brand product. The fast paced nature of the business keeps me very busy but there are always new challenges and exciting projects to tackle to bring the best product possible to market!

Personal facts: I am currently engaged to my boyfriend of 8 years, Alex, with a wedding date set in May 2022! We recently got a puppy and are spending a lot of our free time training him right now. During non-pandemic times you can usually find me checking out new restaurants in the area with friends!
