After graduating from Durham University, Diane worked as a Management Consultant at Accenture before moving into financial services. She spent over 10 years enjoying roles in Treasury Sales for BZW, Inter-bank trading for Barclays Capital, and Head of Treasury Marketing for WestLB. This period also included overseas postings in Chicago, New York and Paris.
After leaving the City to raise a family, Diane gained further marketing experience in a variety of sectors including consumer goods, technology, and start-ups.
A relocation to Exeter allowed her to complete an MBA at the University of Exeter Business School, followed by the IDM Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her three teenagers (a sentiment not necessarily reciprocated), reading, and exploring the beautiful South West.
