Recently, Bealstone Inc. announced some major additions to our firm. We were excited to celebrate William’s promotion to management, giving him the opportunity to work with our client in Indianapolis. Cassandra, who managed Bealstone Inc.’s HR team in Pittsburgh, earned the opportunity to help with William’s team, which created a new opportunity here. Excitingly, we found an exceptional candidate to join the team and head up all Human Resource items in Pittsburgh, and that would be Emily who started with our company in April.
Emily came to Pittsburgh several years ago to attend University of Pittsbugh (hail to Pitt!). She studied there for both her Undergrad and Graduate studies in Education. It’s at Pitt in her senior year that she met her now fiancé and biggest motivator. After exploring career opportunities in the Education field, she decided that she wanted new and different experiences. After interviewing with Bealstone Inc., Emily decided that it was the company that would give her the opportunity to grow and learn in a new field.
“After my interview I could tell this was a fun environment where I could grow.”
With the friendly work environment, Lena the office pup, and the opportunities that Emily has, she’s become a part of the Bealstone Inc. family. She has enjoyed that everyone is so friendly and approachable and also that if she has a rough moment or gets the day started off on the wrong foot, someone is always happy to help and she always leaves work in a good mood with a sense of accomplishment. She also makes sure to hang out with the team on a weekly basis, which has helped her to get to know each team member very well.
In her off time, Emily enjoys a quiet type of life. Her favorite activity is to curl up on the sofa with a good book (be sure to ask her what her favorite is) with a hot cup of chocolate or tea. Emily brings out her competitive side when she and fiancé participate in trivia. They are a pretty unstoppable pair. Get to know more about Emily and the rest of the Bealstone Inc. team by checking out our team page on the company website.
At Bealstone Inc. we place very high importance on working with great people to help the company and our clients further their goals. Each member of the team has the opportunity to learn beyond the day to day and so its critical that we hire and train those who are eager to learn. Ben is a shining example of who we love to work with. He has an incredible work ethic is and is very eager to learn.
When you meet with Ben, Senior Account Manager at Bealstone Inc., you’ll instantly pick up on the fact that he’s very outgoing and has a hard time meeting a stranger. His love of working with people and Bealstone Inc’s welcoming team is what drew Ben to taking the job opening our company had earlier this year. He describes working at Bealstone Inc. as an “extremely upbeat and positive, focused, motivational environment.” With help from the leadership development we provide at Bealstone Inc., Ben has become an integral part of our team and a great mentor to other team members.
Over the three months of working at our company, Ben has been able to take his love for working with others and implement the training he’s been given to successfully move into an Senior Account Manager role. Being self-motivated and success driven, he’s been able to quickly take on more then just our day to day. Ben has also been great at impressing clients and consistently producing results. “Working at Bealstone Inc. has given me the opportunity to make choices that will benefit my future.”, says Ben about Bealstone Inc.
Before joining the Bealstone Inc. team, Ben studied at West Virginia University. He is determined to do whatever it takes to get to the position he desires and reach his goals. Outside of working at Bealstone Inc., Ben enjoys being out doors and exploring new places.

At Bealstone Inc., we pride ourselves in finding and and building great people to help our clients grow in Pittsburgh. One of these great people, Mary, has been a constant go to for our team and an integral part of our client’s success since joining our team late last year.
Before joining Bealstone Inc. 8 months ago, Mary was on the look for a new opportunity in the Pittsburgh area. She had experience in retail but was open to different fields to test out. After finding our open position on Indeed, she applied so she could get experience in sales and she found that the company would provide the career growth she was looking for. She was initially hesitant about working with Bealstone Inc. as she only had experience in retail but felt assured that she would be taught the systems to be successful. Since starting she has seen great success.
What attracted Mary most to Bealstone Inc. was the fun environment and the challenge of the everyday work. “I enjoy the fun environment, having control over my future, and having access to coaching both inside and outside of the office.” says Mary. With everyday having it’s own unique opportunities, Mary has been able to set the pace and learn how to manage in different situations. She’s enjoyed using the systems in place at Bealstone Inc. to solve problems and also has enjoyed interacting with the various customers in Pittsburgh and around Pennsylvania. She feels that Bealstone Inc. equips her with the tools to become successful and she has improved both on her self management and her ability to lead by example.
Working at our company has been the most difficult yet rewarding thing Mary has ever done. “It’s a great learning experience, which teaches you valuable skills that can be used in different areas of your life.” Without the great leadership at our company like William, Bealstone Inc’s Assistant Manager, she’s felt the support she needs to be successful and move forward. “He’s always there to help others achieve their goals while still exceeding his own.” Thank you Mary for also being a helpful part of Bealstone Inc.’s growing team!

At Bealstone, Inc, we believe that hard work and dedicated training can help you go a long way in your career. This is especially true for our interns, who come to us ready to learn about running a business in ways that you can not get from the classroom. This month, we asked Intern Amanda to share what she has learned during her time with us.
Amanda is a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh, where she is studying Human Resources Management and Finance, with minor in Economics and Political Science. She spends her time outside of school hiking, and has hiked trails in 12 National Parks so far. She is also the Vice President of Member Relations for Pitt’s Enactus Club, a student organization that works in the community to help start-up companies with their marketing and finance needs.
Amanda came to Bealstone, Inc looking for a real-life business learning experience outside of the classroom, where she would have the opportunity to advance her career in a friendly environment. She found that at Bealstone, Inc: “At Bealstone, I felt as though everyone wanted me to succeed and were excited to help! The welcoming environment made it easier for me to ask questions, and there was always someone willing to teach me.”
While at Bealstone, Inc, Amanda has learned many skills relating to operating a business, including how to interview prospective employees, how to close sales through customer interactions, and how important it is to have a positive attitude towards any challenge, “because attitude is one of the key components of achieving success.” She has enjoyed working in an environment where interns are appreciated, where opinions are valued by everyone who works there, and where she was greeted every day with a smile.
After she graduates, Amanda plans to prove herself at a company where she can work to advance into an upper-level position. Based on her time here at Bealstone, Inc, she will not have a problem succeeding!
