Stephanie Byrd

A large part of Stephanie Byrd's days are spent receiving and sending messages. She craves to know “more” and will pick up any magazine lying around, or become lost online after a chasing rabbits with a series of clicks. She is especially interested in renewable energy and environmental issues. At Schneider Electric, Stephanie has the pleasure of managing marketing communication efforts for the US Retail division. This includes advertising, press relations, events, social media, website design and literature development. She is proud to send continuous messaging about the benefits of solar energy and hopes to persuade people to look forward to this future. After a day of work, Stephanie enjoys cooking new dinner recipes and the occasional ballet class.
