Diane Cheadle is the Vice President of the GLOBAL POINT, New York Office. Pointed and passionate about music, culture and marketing, she has her finger firmly on the pulse of all things new-and-now. She is responsible for building the team and clientele of the company’s US presence.
With a storied career in the music industry, Diane realized that there was a gap between music and marketing, which led to her involvement with GLOBAL POINT'S Planet Dance Label. Through her success with Darudes' "Sandstorm," Diane was able to earn a Gold disc. Subsequently, this allowed her to work with companies like NIKE and LG in the area of music design.
With these projects, Diane was able to expand her marketing knowledge and experience which culminated with the international expansion of GLOBAL POINT NY in 2010. In 2012 she formed the US Hospitality division of GLOBAL POINT FAMILY with the Tribeca restaurant, 22.13 (due to open Fall 2013), and in January 2013 became the CEO of GLOBAL POINT FAMILY USA.
