Melissa Reiff

For Melissa Reiff, communication is everything. As President and Chief Operating Officer of The Container Store, she’s not only responsible for day-to-day operations, but more importantly, she’s been instrumental in upholding and strengthening the company’s unique, employee-first environment and ideology. “We truly care for each and every individual, not just as an employee and their productivity, but who they are as a person.”

Throughout her career, Melissa has fostered a corporate environment that consistently leads to growth and success due to increased productivity from happy, motivated employees. The opportunities for the future are equally as impressive as next generation technology allows The Container Store to connect with customers on a much deeper level than ever before, both in-store and online.

“Everyone at The Container Store is encouraged, and really expected, to seek out information and innovation."
