Piemonte Leaves Revman To Embark On New Ventures
| After a long and distinguished career at Revman International, Diane Piemonte has
resigned her position as vice-president of creative services to explore new creative
opportunities as an independent consultant and fine artist.
"This was a difficult decision to make," she states, "and I will always be grateful to
Rich Roman for the unique opportunity he gave me to be a part of forming a new

achieved over the past 26 years and of my role in its success."
Diane studied art at The Cooper Union and graduated in 1977 with a BFA in Fine
Art and Graphic Design. Post college, she found herself drawn to the field of textile
design, which allowed her to build a career centered on painting and designing.
She has worked in home furnishings since 1978, and was recognized by the
industry when she received the Hometex Design Award in 1992 for her
contributions to home textiles.
Having been with Revman since its inception in 1988, she was directly involved in
designing all of the products in the early years of the new company. As the
company grew, so did the design staff, and her role evolved as a design director and
administrator, while continuing her other responsibilities for photography,
advertising, showrooms and public relations for the company.
"Diane is very talented and extremely capable," states Rich Roman, president and
ceo of Revman International. "She has been an integral part of Revman from the
beginning and we have had a long and successful association. However, I know that
Diane has many interests that her career at Revman did not allow her to fully pursue.
I'm hopeful that in this next chapter in her life she will have the time to pursue those

continue to do so, but intends to pursue her own painting and drawing interests as
