Experience is the ultimate teacher, in marketing as well as in life. Diane's agency and corporate experience is perfectly suited for helping formulate effective marketing strategies for Villing + Company's clients across a variety of industries. Prior to joining the agency, Diane held marketing leadership positions for Saint Joseph Health System, Columbia College Chicago, Northwestern University School of Law, Jones Lang LaSalle (commercial real estate services) and others.
In each of these roles, strategic marketing communications, brand management and public relations were at the forefront of Diane's responsibilities. She knows great branding when she sees it and she knows how to articulate it. Diane also recognizes the value of smart strategic thinking as the foundation of effective marketing for organizations of any size.
A die-hard "Hook 'em Horns" University of Texas alum, Diane also earned her Digital Marketing Certification/Certified Professional Marketer credentials from the Digital Marketing Institute and the American Marketing Association. When she's not stirring up effective marketing strategies for Villing + Company clients, she is often at home mixing up her favorite gourmet food and drink recipes.
