Stacey Chosed

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.



Preston Sneed

I joined AT&T in 2010 as a candidate in the Leadership Development Program and have held various positions in Credit and Collections, Technology Operations, Corporate Strategy, Strategic Program Office, and most recently AT&T Business. I currently serve as a Principal Business Manager in Customer Service & Operations where I am focused on Transformation across people, process, technology, and culture.

I became a LEAGUE at AT&T member in 2015 and previously served as the National Program Director in 2019 and 2020. I am now National Chief Operating Officer. 

It took me a while to be my authentic self at work. I came out at age 28 after I had already been working at AT&T for nearly 5 years. I can say LEAGUE helped me to be my authentic self and to build more genuine relationships, to be a more impactful employee, and to have a higher level of compassion and empathy for others. I am really passionate about empowering others to be their authentic selves at work as it greatly benefits the individual and corporation at large.

I was raised in the Southeast U.S. but also had the opportunity to live in the Northeast U.S. and in South America growing up. I now reside in Atlanta, GA and enjoy traveling, working out, playing tennis, and volunteering for various non-profits.

I joined AT&T in 1992 and have held positions in Sales, Operations, Marketing, and Finance.  I currently serve as a Principal Project Program Manager on the Global Customer Payments team responsible for payment strategy.  I manage the ACH electronic funds, Merchant Fees, and Transformation portfolios.

I became a LEAGUE at AT&T member in 2000 and have served the national board as CEO, COO, PR Officer, Communications and Strategy Chair.  I’ve also served as VP and Treasurer at the Chapter level and continue to serve on the LEAGUE Foundation where I’ve been a member and past VP since 2009.

Bringing my true self to work since the 1990’s has supported my growth across work, community, and family.

In my free time you can find me and my partner traveling and volunteering.
