Diane Doers has been the President, Treasurer, and a Director of DeltaHawk, Inc. since its inception in 1996 to the present. She carries on her DeltaHawk duties as her "night and weekend" job while maintaining a full-time position as Corporate Community Relations Manager for IBM's Central Region. In prior positions at IBM, Diane had systems development, sales and management responsibilities in IBM's custom system development business with manufacturing companies. Her experience with developing shop floor, quality control, inventory management, materials handling and labor reporting systems for a variety of manufacturing companies, large and small, served as excellent preparation for her leadership of DeltaHawk, Inc. and DeltaHawk Engines LLC, of which she is also President.
Prior to her IBM career, Diane was a field research biologist studying bats, working from university and museum positions. Her initial work following college was as an elementary school teacher. She holds a B.A. in English (Magna Cum Laude) from Bethany College, West Virginia, and a M.S. in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (coursework and assistantships at the University of Kansas). In her "spare time" she travels, scuba dives, performs occasionally with an amateur theater group, and participates in a book club.
