Beatriz Schweitzer

Beatriz Schweitzer Portrait

Beatriz Schweitzer is the Community Outreach Director for Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL), a multinational company headquartered in Pullman, Washington. In this role, she is responsible for developing and promoting relationships for SEL and the communities it serves. Before residing in Pullman, Beatriz set and held a number of sales records for SEL Mexico.

Achieving record sales has been an ongoing passion for Beatriz. While honing her skills at a small Mexican company, she played a pivotal role in transforming the company into a nationwide sales leader. As a regional sales manager for a Mexican subsidiary of a multinational company, she was the first manager to meet the company’s regional sales goal.

Beatriz has always taken an interest in contributing to her community. After marrying Edmund O. Schweitzer, III, president and founder of SEL, she became active in various organizations on the Palouse, such as the United Way of Pullman, Palouse Care Network, Washington Idaho Symphony, and the Girl Scouts. Beatriz enjoys traveling the world, but feels incredibly happy and fortunate to call Pullman home.
