August 11, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Automated Shredding is proud to announce the hiring of their new Sales Manager, Melissa Walker-Price. Price is a Fort Mill native with more than 20 years sales experience in the York County community. A graduate of Winthrop University with a bachelor of science in government and public service, she currently resides in Rock Hill with her husband, Eric and son, Robert.

"I've enjoyed getting to know our clients and expanding our customer-base," Price said. "Automated Shredding is a company with integrity, outstanding service and economical pricing. It's exciting to introduce new people to our services."

Price said Automated Shredding performs on-site shredding, setting them apart from most of the industry's competitors. "One of my greatest selling points for Automated Shredding is that clients can watch their confidential documents be destroyed on-site, ensuring safe disposal of information, then receive a Certificate of Destruction to keep for their records." She said they also recycle shredded documents. "After shredding, the paper is baled into 2,000 pound bales and sent to a paper mill for additional security, where they recycle it for new paper," she said. "Automated Shredding believes in recycling and protecting our environment."

Automated Shredding owner Bob Korkos said Price is a valuable asset to our team. Her experience, skills and knowledge of the community immediately generated positive results. "I knew Melissa's enthusiasm for her work and friendly personality would work well in our company," Korkos said. "After learning the laws concerning document disposal, she wanted local businesses to understand the value to properly handling confidential information. This enthusiasm is what sets her apart from others in the field."

Price also serves on the Crimestoppers of York County, Inc. Board of Directors and is a member of the Executive Associates of Charlotte, Business Network International, Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce and York County Regional Chamber of Commerce. She attends Good Sheppard United Methodist Church in Charlotte.
