Senior Account Planner
Specialist: Diane is the senior account planner in the iB2B Group. She rebuilt old cars when she was in high school, so her love of motors and mechanical stuff comes naturally. She is the person who will guide the client’s objectives from conversation to campaign strategy. Diane is a master organizer and multi-tasker with extraordinary research and technical skills. She can talk motors, generators, power couplings, drives and cooling towers all day long. It might be embarrassing if she weren’t so valued by her clients.
Diane’s specialty is: Account management and research. According to the agency’s time keeping systems, Diane logs more hours on the weekend than anyone else. Why? Because she is an information junkie. She will research a problem or a topic until she knows it like she had a PhD in the subject. She is our office IT pro and she manages two of the agency’s largest industrial manufacturing client accounts. She is a fierce advocate for her clients.
Specializing in iB2B Account Management: 10 years
Other specialties: Mountain biking, road cycling, kayaking, sign language, laughter (best laugh in the office), creative integration of profanity into conversation, uncanny instincts about a person’s character.
