Our Story

Chameleon Technologies’ CEO and Founder, Melissa Acton-Buzard, has worked in the staffing industry ever since graduating from the University of Washington with a political science degree in 1995. She planned to go to law school but decided to call a time-out from school and get a job for a year. A friend working at one of the nation’s leading staffing companies suggested Melissa apply there. Hired as the vendor coordinator for a large contract the company landed with Microsoft, Melissa quickly fell in love with the fast pace and personal relationships of the staffing business. Goodbye law school, hello totally serendipitous career. After stints at several other staffing and consulting firms, Melissa started Chameleon Technologies in 2000. With invaluable first-hand experience, she was clear about the services and practices she wanted to offer as well as what she would do differently with her own firm. With a focus on diversity and inclusion as a woman-owned business, Chameleon Technologies set out to emphasize the importance of diversity in the workplace with an unparalleled focus on outstanding customer service.

Melissa explains that Chameleon’s business strategy is simple: Give a lot to get a lot. Most technical recruiting environments focus on volume. Chameleon exceeds its competition by providing a very personal, hands-on, high-quality service—quality as opposed to quantity. The benefit to their clients and their employees is job satisfaction and a very low turnover rate. It’s those personalized relationships that will continue to be the catalyst for their growth.

Melissa recently opened data analytics and BI project division, which exclusively focuses on data management and data analytics. Our unique approach to data analytics produces superior results for our clients. Chameleon’s customers have chosen us over other larger firms to lead their data projects because we are nimble, move quickly, and are highly specialized. We provide strategic data insights with competitive strategy for world-class business management. Key areas of expertise are data analysis and Business Intelligence solutions.
