Diane had one of the most difficult management challenges that I have ever seen at Kelly’s Mission Rock, and she handled it with charm, expertise and aplomb. Absolutely nothing flustered her. She was required to turn from politics to general personnel management to financial management almost every day, and she did it smoothly and calmly. I have been connected to many managers in my years in the hospitality business and never have I seen anyone handle so much activity so quickly, calmly and without wasting resources. Diane’s ability to handle the problems that arose (including major litigation) all the while keeping a careful eye on her budget and her bottom line was exceptionally impressive.

Jeffrey Anderson, President, High Regard Software, Inc.
When it comes to developing new business today, we have found our success increasingly depends on our firm’s ability to differentiate and sell itself … in writing and in-person. While our relationships, of course, are still our important asset, but as we have found, the most we can expect from those relationship is either a reference or an opportunity to bring value to the client. However, to bring value, we needed to bring clarity to our marketing communications. As a group of corporate researchers, Parachute Marketing took our complex information and effectively positioned our firm to have the opportunity to get in front of the senior leadership of some very large organizations. Diane’s role was as our contract VP of Marketing and Business Development has made us feel empowered to make the changes necessary to increase our firm’s ‘win-rate’. Diane is the consummate marketing professional; it is clear that she has been there and done that before.
