Diana Brown, Harvey
Marketer. Delegator. Teenage Whisperer. Foodie. Diana Brown, CPSM grew up surrounded by architecture and developed a marketing mindset at an early age. In 2004, to no surprise of her parents, Diana began her career as an AEC marketer. During her 15-year career, she has worked at a small local architecture firm, a medium-sized regional engineering firm, a large national construction firm and an extra-large international construction firm. In each of her roles, she delegated both upward to bosses and downward to team members. Diana has been able to transition her skill set of delegating at work to delegating with volunteer-based organizations such as the SMPS Houston chapter and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society | Team in Training. At home, Diana tests out her delegating skills on her 15-year old son to get him to pick up his room, do his laundry and walk the dog.
