Celebrating Our Female Leaders

March is Women’s History Month, and we are excited for an opportunity to feature the many women leaders who are a part of The Douglas Stewart Company. Follow along on our Facebook or LinkedIn this month to read about all the amazing female managers and directors that help make up the DSC family.

Cheryl Rosen Weston

Cheryl Rosen Weston, Former CEO

Former CEO Cheryl Rosen Weston had a huge impact on our company, and our community. She attended law school in the late ‘60s and focused her career on Family Law. After obtaining her law degree, she co-founded the law firm Cullen, Weston, Pines & Bach. Cheryl taught Constitutional Law and Civil and Civil Procedure at the UW Law School where she was a distinguished and highly regarded Professor. At the time, it was rare for women to have careers, let alone be lawyers.

In 2000, Rosen Weston acquired the controlling interest of The Douglas Stewart Company. As CEO, she helped take our company to new heights while continuing to teach law at UW Madison. Just 5 years after becoming CEO, Cheryl was named Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year by the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). During her professional career, Rosen Weston was an active member of the community volunteering for A Fund for Women, Madison Public Library Foundation Board, Wisconsin Economic Development Board, the Alliant Energy Center Commission, Jewish Social Services, and the Jewish Federation of Madison.

Tiffany Helley

Tiffany Helley, Current GM

If you have a question, Tiffany can help! This remarkable woman has done it all. Before becoming a General Manager for VAR and 3PL, Tiffany started as a Manager for Human Resources. She eventually became the Director of Global HR, then added Director of Global HR and DSC Goods to her list of accomplishments. If that wasn’t enough, she took the responsibility of Main Warehouse operations, added all warehouse operations, then added VAR Sales. Dogs love her, and people love working with her. But she has also been known for making treats for company festivities.

Amanda Francis

Amanda Francis, Current GM

Amanda is one of the kindest, sweetest people you’ll ever meet. She has worn many hats here at The Douglas Stewart Company. She started at the company in 2010 as an Adobe Account Support Specialist. From there she joined the Marketing Department as an Event Specialist. A few years later she became a Product Manager, then became a Program Manager, then became the Business Unit Manager. She eventually became a General Manager of the company, working with VAR & Adobe and now DSS.

Lesley Dancker

Lesley Dancker, Current GM

Lesley started at The Douglas Stewart Company in 2005 as an Assistant Product Manager but was promoted to the role of Product Manager before she even started! She eventually became the Manager of Product Management, then Director of Product Management, oversaw Retail Sales, then became the General Manager of the Retail channel. Her devotion to her team and her relationships with the vendors that DSC works with are a true sentiment to her dedication to the company.
