Since Rob Snyder, Pierre Koshakji and Stream Energy secured a Texas retail electric provider license in early 2005, the privately held company has become the longest-tenured network marketing energy company and one of the fastest-growing companies in American business history. The company expanded from an initial Texas operational base into the Georgia natural gas market in 2008; the Pennsylvania electricity market in 2010; and the Maryland and New Jersey electricity markets in 2011. Stream Energy provides a full-service approach to customer relationships, supported by the firm’s network marketing arm, Ignite. Stream Energy has won Awards of Excellence from the prestigious Platts Global Energy Awards, and Ignite is consistently ranked among the top direct selling companies in the world. In 2012, the firm launched a subscription-based program to promote clean energy through the sale of renewable energy certificates as part of its new Clean Nation program.
