NJ ChamberEdge: This Holiday Season, N.J. Chamber Members Pay Tribute to Their Mentors
Melissa A. Salimbene was featured in an editorial roundtable in the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce's December 2019 issue of ChamberEdge alongside fellow business leaders from across the state sharing the value that her mentor, Catherine P. Wells, Chair of CSG's Employment Group, added to her career.
She said, "I have had the great pleasure of working alongside my dear friend, Catherine Wells since beginning my legal career as an associate with the firm in 2005. Catherine has been an invaluable mentor to me, both professionally and personally, and she is an inspiring trailblazer who paved the way for women at the firm and in the legal profession. I will forever be thankful to Catherine for navigating me through numerous first steps in my career. She helped me with everything from my first deposition and oral argument to preparing for my first trial, and even assisted me in landing my first client. Through her guidance, she has instilled in me the confidence and skills to become a better-rounded litigator and advocate. Due in no small part to Catherine’s mentorship and support, I have ascended through the ranks within CSG – becoming a member of the firm in 2016, and in 2018 joining Catherine on CSG’s Management Committee, a committee to which she was the first woman to be appointed. I hope to provide the same mentorship to others that Catherine has given to me."
