Creating a Strong Local Economy

Mary Everett

I attended the Richfield Chamber Holiday event at Pizza Lucé earlier this month. During the event I met a wonderful woman by the name of Kristie Beauchaine. I learned that she is the Director of Sales for Candlewood Suites in Richfield.

As Kristie and I visited, she inquired as to how CenterPoint Energy, my employer, identifies lodging options for employees who are in town for business. Over the course of the next few days, I was able to put Kristie in touch with our Corporate Travel representative to discuss using Candlewood Suites as a possible lodging partner for CenterPoint Energy in the future.

This, in my opinion is what the Richfield Chamber is all about – businesses helping businesses grow the Richfield economy!
