Diana Morris

Executive Director

Diana Morris is the Executive Director of the Dufferin Board of Trade (DBOT) and an Accredited Chamber Executive. She holds a diploma in Business-Marketing and a certificate in Human Resource Management from St. Clair College, and has completed several courses and certificate programs in finance and management. She is currently in the process of completing the Certificate in Economic Development program through the University of Waterloo.

Diana joined the DBOT team in early 2015 after deciding to relocate to Dufferin to purchase a farm and start tilling the “Hills of Mulmur” with her husband. Together with their two teenage daughters, they are raising about 75 acres of field crops, a small herd of pygmy goats, a few cattle, some ducks, lots of chickens, and a few other random farm animals. Diana spent the seven years prior to joining DBOT working at a farm equipment dealership in Wellington County, and the four years before that in the banking industry. She is responsible for managing DBOT’s operations, ensuring that the needs of the Dufferin business community are well served.
