Diana is an excellent manager for teams that are going trough changes. She is an active and independent interim manager. To me active means ‘considering, thinking, daring and taking action’ and Diana shows a good balance in these four characteristics.

Diana has a clear vision about the Marketing and Communications profession, she enables these disciplines in the organisation, she monitors the necessary quality and ensures the individual roles of the people are in line with what is needed. Her level of quality is high, she expects that of her team members and shows the right model behaviour.

Her management style is open and transparent. She does not avoid an argument and at the same time respects possible accompanying issues. She can pretty easily change her style as necessary. In addition she has shown a good sensitivity concerning the consequences of her actions towards co-managers and members of the Board of Directors.

The commitment and flexibility that Diana showed during her one full year assignment were extensive. Consequently, I am extremely satisfied with the way she has fulfilled this assignment.
