Get to know us

Meet our management team

Writing isn't a job but an abiding passion. Deborah's passion is evident in the uncompromising editorial standards she brings to DCP's
award-winning content. Previously, Deborah held senior editorial positions at Harper's Bazaar, Details,
and Scuba Diving.
DEBORAH KIRK
editorial director
Artists rarely sit still. So why has award-winning Creative Director David Bergeron been with DCP since 1998? Simple, says the veteran designer (with experience at Landor and other big agencies). With so many creative challenges, boredom is out of the question.

Clients are happy to have a 14-year veteran like Senior Project Manager Laura-Lee looking after them. Adept at juggling a multitude of details, managing deadlines and paying close attention to quality, Laura-Lee always makes the near-impossible look easy.
LAURA-LEE LOVE
SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER
Can custom publishing help an organization rebrand? Absolutely, says Senior Account Manager Kristen Foster, who has more than 10 years of account experience with titans like Conde Nast and Ogivly & Mather. This kind of strategic thinking is just one of the many ways this publishing pro serves her customers.

The most elegantly designed, well-written publication is worthless if it doesn't serve a client's objectives.  Account Director, Dennis Cook understands this instinctively. "It's not about creative ego," he says but about the client's needs and offering the solutions in the most creative and
cost-effective way.

Creating and delivering great content is what we do everyday, but the secret sauce that Linda Bowers brings to the table is the ability to help customers get to the heart of their content plan. Asking the right questions is key, and we work towards the solution only after that due diligence has taken place.
linda bowers
account executive
"Produce the best work, exceed clients' expectations and have a good time doing it." That's the philosophy embraced by Barney Fonzi, president of Diablo Publications. His experience and track record as an innovative thinker have taught him to assess a client's needs quickly, then inspire his team to deliver the best solution.
barney fonzi
president
Her work is demanding and detail oriented. Eileen, an MBA graduate who's been in DCP customer support and project management since 1996, takes immense satisfaction working with staff and vendor-partners to ensure all details of a project are handled professionally and delivered on schedule.

operations director
One of my favorite quotes: “Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if you don’t have the first, the other two will kill you." - Warren Buffet. With over 20 years at Diablo, Brendan knows firsthand that the DCP staff has all three qualities and more.
