Diana’s earlier business career was in private equity and venture capital. She was a partner at Schroder Ventures (now Permira) for 12 years, founder CEO of e-Ventures and founder Managing Director of Reed Elsevier Ventures.
In 2005 she took a new direction, triggered by the HIV/AIDS crisis, and joined the organisation that she believed was achieving the most in bringing Antiretroviral therapy to the poorest countries: the Clinton Foundation Health Access Initiative. Diana stayed for five years and took a number of roles, including EVP Operations responsible for 43 countries, and oversaw the scale-up of a global programme to give children access to the HIV/AIDS care and treatment equal to that available to adults.
Diana is a member of the CDC Board and also a Non-Executive Director on the Board of the Business Growth Fund Plc. She has a first class Law degree and completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School.
In September 2016, Diana announced she would step down from CDC in 2017.
