Diane Werner uses her considerable people skills, organizational aptitude, negotiating acumen and large-group management abilities to purchase and manage local broadcast media for ICON’s large and diverse client base.
A veteran of the media industry, Ms. Werner began her career at MMT Sales Inc., transitioning to a 13-year career at The Mediators Inc. in New York City. There, she became a vice president at just 30 years of age. At The Mediators Inc., Werner received the only merit award for outstanding performance given by Kodak, in recognition for personally negotiating Olympic sponsorship packages in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and San Diego. Her next stop was with Media, Inc. Then following a six-year stint with another corporate-barter organization, Werner joined ICON in 2002.
Since then, she has combined her extensive media experience with a BS in Business Administration from American University’s Kogod School of Business to grow and manage ICON’s Local Broadcast Group, doubling the department’s billings and tripling its trade usage.
Most People Don’t Know That… Werner is a self-confessed techie whose favorite store is Best Buy.
