Few people in yachting have had as great an impact on the career success of crew candidates or the peace of mind for Owners and Captains across the worldwide fleet today as Diane Leander. Celebrating almost 20 years with TCN, Diane has placed well over 2,000 captains and crew on board over 1,000 yachts around the world.
Born and bred in a small farming town in Ohio; Diane puts much of her success down to the strong work ethic and focus her parents instilled in her from an early age.
A widely travelled and successful entrepreneur before joining TCN (she launched her own Spa/Salon at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, New York as well as a renowned skincare company still in operation today), Diane exemplifies the long-standing results that come with relationships built on trust.
As the highly respected Crewing Manager of the busy TCN Fort Lauderdale office, she takes the time to understand the goals, dreams and experiences of candidates so that Captains and Owners recruiting through TCN don’t simply benefit from quality crew…they benefit from quality crew that fit.
A firm believer in the benefits of organic living, Diane’s home cooking (using her own homegrown and reared organic produce) is as much sought-after by her friends and family as it is by many of her longest-standing clients.
