Reserve Direct, a leader in travel reservations and booking solutions for travel suppliers for 13 years, honored Diana Coleman Kersh March 1st for 10 years of service to the company. Diana, Reserve Direct’s Senior Market Manager, started with the company in March of 2004 and is the second employee to reach a ten year work anniversary.
Diana started as the Market Manager for Reserve Direct at its first destination in Branson, MO, coming to the job with nearly a decade of experience in the Travel and Tourism Industry. Her industry knowledge and drive made her an integral part of the then-small company. As Reserve Direct grew to include 10 destinations Diana was responsible for training new Market Managers and was an energetic component to the ongoing expansion of the company.
“Diana has been instrumental in the growth of our company through her long standing relationships in the travel industry and assume-the-sale approach,” stated Reserve Direct President John Johnson. “Her experience and nurturing manner has also developed well to suit her role guiding all of our market managers. We’ve been lucky to have her onboard.”
Promoted to Senior Market Manager in 2011, Diana now oversees several destinations and Market Managers, providing training, management, and expertise while still serving as the Branson Market Manager. She is an active member in state and local attraction associations in Branson and several other destinations.
Diana said “Being part of the most advanced technology reservation company in the world and having an opportunity to work with all types of travel suppliers – hoteliers, shows, attractions, chambers and associations – in the progressive Internet Sales Market is what makes my career so dynamically rewarding.”
