Earlier in her career, Barr was a search consultant for several executive search firms, including firms focused on the private equity space. Barr began her career as an HR Generalist with Marriott International.

“One Rock continues to prioritize building out a strong bench of talent across our portfolio companies to support ongoing strategic and operational needs,” said Tony W. Lee, managing partner of One Rock, in a statement. “We believe Diana’s extensive background in human resources and talent acquisition, coupled with her vast professional network, will be invaluable and resourceful to our portfolio companies as One Rock implements the companies’ growth plans and expands its executive development efforts.”
