Diana Torres

Managing Director

With a British mother, American father, grandparents from South America & Ireland, Diana was destined for a career that involved globetrotting.  She started her career with a UK tour operator, which took her to Spain, the Eastern Mediterranean, and the USA.  Then, for five years with Forte, the global hotel chain, she gained marketing & sales experience on both sides of the Atlantic. She started Cakewalk to offer smaller European travel providers the opportunity to grow their US business, and to introduce the US traveler to the concept that small can be beautiful!
