Eric Melchor

Spark Energy

Marketing Director

Eric Melchor currently serves as the Marketing Director for Spark Energy and the Executive Director for Fly Movement – an innovative nonprofit he founded in 2014 that provides children an opportunity to reach a fitness goal using Fitbits. The program has been implemented in three schools, and Eric hopes to expand it nationwide within 7 years.  

Eric is known for his knowledge in marketing and leading teams, but what most people don’t know is that he has a passion for community service and inspiring students to reach their potential. In his spare time Eric taught at the University of Houston Downtown, and, in addition to teaching his curriculum, he educated his students about self-motivation and encouraged them to believe their background does not dictate their future.

Eric is a first generation college graduate, a Houston 40 Under 40 award winner, and a washed up athlete. However, he is thinking about giving it all up to be a handsome billionaire.
