Diana leverages her executive experience from more than 25 years with GE, Genworth Financial, Kemper Corporation and Fidelity & Guaranty Life. She developed and implemented effective business practices including investor relations, brand, marketing, employee communications, operations, six sigma quality, public relations, social media and board communications. Throughout her career she coached and developed scores of successful leaders and individual contributors across many disciplines to optimize their impact.
She forged her diverse skills through a series of GE engineering and leadership roles in industries including insurance, plastics, silicones, power systems, mobile communications and aerospace. In preparation for GE’s first initial public offering (Genworth), Diana led the $24B reinsurance transaction project resulting in the IPO success. Diana then transitioned to a new role—defining and implementing the Genworth-branded customer experience for policyholders and agents (print, web, phones and email communications). In 2007 Diana moved to investor relations where she developed key business and financial messaging and supported shareholders and analysts throughout the turbulent days of the global financial crisis.
In 2011, Diana moved to Chicago to implement the rebranding of Unitrin, Inc. to Kemper Corporation and to develop and lead the company’s investor relations, communications and media relations practices. In 2017, Diana joined Fidelity & Guaranty Life to implement the investor relations practice as the company completed its merger transaction, in parallel with developing and implementing the company’s new brand.
Following these corporate successes, Diana moved into a consulting role where she leverages her array of technical and coaching skills to help clients define and achieve their strategic objectives as well as provide them with strategic marketing and communications support.
