March is Women’s History Month, a celebration of the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.
It’s also a time to highlight the accomplishments of women in various fields, and Stream is doing that with its recent announcement that Chelsey Berend has been named vice president of Field Experience for the Dallas-based direct seller of energy and connected life services.
Berend started working at Stream as a receptionist when the company had only 20 employees. Then a recent graduate of Texas Christian University, she thought getting started on the ground floor of a new company sounded exciting and fun. After a year, she was hooked on the Stream culture and subsequently moved into a coordinator position. She continued to rise in the company, taking advantage of the opportunities to work with Stream’s leadership to acquire more knowledge and grow in her role at the company.
Berend created new roles for herself at Stream and founded the organization’s event department as the organization continued to grow. Her passion project is Women of Power, which brings women together to support each other in business. She was part of the initial team to ignite the program and has since been able to motivate female employees and several thousand women from the Stream sales force through motivational events, mentoring and vision planning.
In her role as vice president of Field Experience, Berend will be responsible for energizing the sales force of thousands to reach new heights. She has advice for anyone willing to work hard to get what they want. “No matter where you came from, you can get somewhere,” she said. “You just need to set goals.”
