PORTLAND, Ore., April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Streem™, a mobile platform connecting home service professionals to their customers through on-demand, augmented reality (AR)-enhanced video collaboration, today announced the addition of Liz Pearce to its leadership team as chief revenue officer (CRO). As a Seattle-based entrepreneur and advocate for diversity in tech, she brings a wealth of startup experience from her former role as CEO of enterprise software company LiquidPlanner, as well as from her background at major tech companies including Amazon, Google and Sony PlayStation.
"My activism in the Northwest tech community affords me a great view of the rich pipeline of promising ventures and innovation," Pearce said. "Streem is emerging as a stand-out by applying AR in a practical way that solves real-world problems for both businesses and consumers."
Streem has created a mobile platform that uses a combination of AR, computer vision and machine learning to make it faster and more convenient for home services professionals to diagnose problems, quote and perform jobs, and support customers. Like LiquidPlanner, Streem is a software-as-a-service for businesses.
Pearce joined LiquidPlanner, a maker of predictive project management technology, as head of sales and marketing. She was elevated to chief operating officer in 2011 and ultimately named CEO in 2012 where she led LiquidPlanner for more than five years. Prior to her startup experience, Pearce served in many key project and product manager posts at key tech brands.
"Liz has a passion to drive growth and customer success, and she brings a breadth of additional experience ranging from marketing to operations, as well as her leadership strengths," said Ryan Fink, CEO and co-founder of Streem. "She has a track record of creating teams and strategies that propel success in a model like ours and will be a tremendous asset in helping us to target the $400 billion home services industry."
Pearce champions the Northwest technology and entrepreneurial community, with a particular interest in advancing diversity in technology and leadership. She is a founding steering committee member of the ADA Developers Academy, a year-long program for women transitioning into software development. She sits on the board of the Technology Alliance, a Washington State institution focused on technology education, research and entrepreneurship. Pearce has served as a Code Fellows and 9 Mile Labs mentor and a member of the City of Seattle's Digital Equity Action Committee. She received her B.A. and M.A. from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
