Stacey Chosed
CEO


I joined AT&T in Sept 2015, I am a Lead Product Marketing Manager for AT&T Cloud Solutions and am responsible for developing product messaging and collaborative leadership with cross-functional teams.

I become a LEAGUE at AT&T member in (I think) late 2015 and I am now CEO.

The importance of being authentic at work prevents me from limiting what I can do. When I am my authentic self at work I can be my true self, maintain my values, my self-esteem and my integrity. Success for me comes through only when I can be my authentic self.

I grew up in New York and now live in Texas with my partner, son and two dogs. For fun, we enjoy traveling and attending hockey games as a family activity.

An authentic YOU is freedom! It’s exhilarating and you feel empowered and it welcomes possibilities. It’s important for me to bring my authentic self to work every day because it keeps me in touch with who I really am. Not living on the surface of my identity but embracing it.
I am authentically ME!

I am a Texas native, born, raised and currently living in Dallas. I love to spoil my nieces and nephews, travel to explore culture and have experiences, and volunteer my time with organizations that align with my passions. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Black Tie Dinner and LEAGUE Foundation.

It is important to bring your whole self to work. When you cannot be your authentic self, then everyone loses the benefits that a truly diverse culture brings.

If you can come to work as your whole self and not hide or leave something behind at home then you can focus on your work and your peers and give more and feel part of the AT&T Community. You don’t need to hide who you are and you bring all your skills to the table.

I have a BSBA and MBA in Marketing from Rockhurst. I am the youngest of four kids. I would consider myself a foodie but not very fanatical about it. I just enjoy good food, wine and great company to share it with. I live in the Atlanta metro area and share my life with six cats and one dog.
