Delivering media intelligence that’s always one step ahead, backed by a team who cares.


Streem is the ANZ market’s leading challenger media intelligence group, delivering comprehensive and realtime Print, Online, TV, Radio and Social media monitoring, insights and reporting. From its market launch in 2017, Streem has grown rapidly to service over 800 of Australia and New Zealand’s largest corporate and government organisations including Telstra, Qantas, Bunnings, Woolworths, Lendlease and more than half of the federal government.

Technology and people are at the centre of Streem’s growth, with a team of 170+ account managers, engineers, product specialists, media analysts and a leadership team driving the company’s platform and market offering.

Founded by CEO Elgar Welch and CTO Antoine Sabourin, Streem was acquired in December 2021 by Cision, the world’s largest media intelligence group. It continues to operate as an independent brand with a strong local management, including the company’s original co-founders.

Streem is based in Sydney, Australia, with staff across Australia, New Zealand and the support of a global team throughout Cision.
