Chelsey Bode Named One of Springfield's 10 for the next 10

The Biz417 10 for the Next 10 List honors ten of Springfield's most successful leaders. We're proud of Chelsey Bode for making the list!

Chelsey Bode, President & Owner of Pearson-Kelly Technology, was named to the 2020 Biz417 10 for the Next 10 List because she leads a successful and growing company despite it being in a competitive, male-dominated industry, as well as her civic engagement with organizations like the Rotary Club of Springfield, Good Samaritan Boys Ranch and the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce.

Springfield has been super-exciting from the time I was in my young twenties. The mentors were there. They want to see young people succeed. The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce and other organizations are trying to put together the programs, trying to include you in Rotary groups and things like that because they see that those groups aren’t sustainable if they don’t have that good, diverse mix.

About the Biz 417 10 For The Next 10 List

The last year has been an eventful one, to say the least. In 2019, we saw the Ozarks region make strides toward a bigger future with new initiatives like Forward SGF, walkability and greenspace development, and SGForum. Then, 2020 brought COVID-19, a national lockdown and a historic wave of social unrest. 2020’s 10 for the Next 10 continue to move us forward with the networks they build and the connections they make, even when they have to dramatically pivot how they do things. With their leadership, we can be confident that, whatever may be next, southwest Missouri can face it head-on.

The 2020 Biz417 10 for the Next 10 honorees are using each of their strengths to better our community and southwest Missouri. Whatever got them on the list for 2020, they have one thing in common: They are leading Springfield into the future.
