It is with deep regret that we announce the sudden death of one of our longest serving employees, Diane Bowyer.

Diane has worked for DPDS for nearly 30 years, firstly as PA to Chairman and Group Managing Director, Les Durrant and latterly as Senior Researcher with prime responsibility for the Group’s Development Plan monitoring system planinfo.

Diane was not only a most dedicated, loyal and highly valued member of our professional team, she was also a much loved close friend to many as well and all of us within DPDS are deeply shocked by the tragic and totally unexpected news of Diane’s death.
