Lisa Holly and Woody Melton, president and vice president of Berea Moving & Storage, said their biggest mistake was not working on a succession plan sooner at their family-owned business. It took a tragedy for them to realize they were in over their heads.
The Company: Berea Moving & Storage, founded in 1960, is owned and operated by siblings Lisa Holly and Woody Melton. The Cleveland company started out as residential moving business but now specializes in moving items for corporations, fine arts institutions and medical facilities.
