Diane, VP Manufacturing Solutions & Center Operations, assists in the daily growth, development and sustainability of the firm while managing the needs of manufacturing clients.

As Vice President of Manufacturing Solutions, Diane brings MRC clients her expertise and guidance in federal and state resources, grants, and educational programs.  Diane routinely meets with clients, offering advice and finding solutions to help them grow locally to compete globally.

Prior to joining MRC in 1989, Diane operated a small retail business in Allentown. There she gained hands-on knowledge of what it takes for small businesses to stay competitive.  The strengths she developed as a small business owner helped MRC during the early days of its formation.  She drew on that experience to become an asset for leadership and the building of success at MRC. Diane received a Women of Influence Award from Lehigh Valley Business in 2023.

For over 30 years, Diane has been helping manufacturers in the Greater Lehigh Valley to identify and address the complex challenges they face in an increasingly competitive marketplace.   She leads MRC’s team of regional directors, who meet with manufacturers to listen to their needs, help with current issues, develop strategies, adopt new technologies, and train their workforce.  She was instrumental in developing and launching many of the services and training programs that we currently offer

She holds a BA in Business Management and a BS in Marketing from DeSales University. She was recognized at a national NIST MEP Conference for her personal achievements and special efforts in working with manufacturers.

Training and Certifications

MRC provides far more than certifications and funding assistance. We offer job creators access to specialized coaching, mentorship and a variety of business and marketing assistance normally outside the reach of most manufacturers.


No matter what’s happening with your business, MRC has probably seen it. We know the problems that keep CEOs up at night, and we know how to help solve them. Our staff has more than 100 years of combined experience working side-by-side with business owners to evaluate, strategize, discover and implement solutions that address both strategic growth needs and organizational transformation.
