DIANA AVILA | Executive Assistant to Dixon Projects

As Executive Assistant to Dixon Projects, Diana’s manages private client communications, organizes internal and external meetings, and coordinates the day-to-day activities of four different Dixon Projects Executive Directors. These are just a few of the ways Diana keeps every member of the Dixon Projects team organized.

“This role gives me a deeper understanding of construction, and a behind-the-scenes look of each renovation. I’m honored to be a part of such a highly skilled and dynamic team.”

Diana began her Dixon journey as an Office Coordinator and was quickly promoted to Head Office Coordinator within three months. Throughout both roles, Diana personified exceptional customer service to guests and teammates alike. Diana laid the foundation for what the Office Management team accomplishes today by establishing policies and procedures that create a welcoming and well-run environment. Diana and her team were pivotal in welcoming new hires to the office while keeping operations running smoothly—whether expanding breakfast choices and keeping the coffee flowing or monitoring office supplies and new equipment purchases, Diana truly was a jack-of-all-trades. When it was time to take over a new office space, Diana coordinated many of the logistics to ensure it was a seamless process. Diana credits her success to her intuition and ability to predict what others will need before they know they need it.

“As the company grew, there were more responsibilities to manage, new policies to adopt, and of course, the big move to Manhattan at the start of 2016.”

Prior to beginning her journey with Dixon, Diana spent five years as an Administrative Assistant to the Mayor of Newark, Cory Booker. In this role, Diana established and maintained databases and records, organized city-wide events, developed research projects for the advancement of the city, processed mayoral proclamations and directed incoming correspondence.

In her free time, Diana enjoys reading, learning to knit and fueling her lifelong passion for politics.
