Diane Mantouvalos, principal of Andonia Public Relations,
has traversed a diverse terrain of public relations and
branding in Boston and beyond for over 15 years.
She has
branded everything from Chefs to Neighborhoods to
Political Movements!
In her most recent agency position as
Vice President of Lifestyle & Entertainment at New England's
largest privately held PR concern,
Regan Communications,
she oversaw a myriad of high-profile clients including
Celebrity Chef Todd English, Mohegan Sun Resort &
Casino
, and Entercom.  A serial entrepreneur, Diane co-
founded the event marketing agency Sudiko Marketing
Group in 1998, where she branded and produced dozens of
fundraising event concepts in Boston, Newport and
Nantucket for private and non-profit clients including
Best
Buddies, New England Home For Little Wanderers, Dana
Farber Cancer Institute
and The Boston Ballet. Her extensive
experience in charitable fundraising propelled her to the
Public Relations Director position at The Improper Bostonian
Magazine
. Diane helped take the magazine to new heights
with slick campaigns, celebrity events and strategic alliances.
From there she soared creatively as an independent PR
consultant and Brand Strategist. In addition to naming one
of Boston‘s hottest restaurants, Mantra,
she is credited with
birthing and branding Boston’s hippest neighborhood and
lifestyle destination, The Ladder District, attracting publicity
from a host of national publications and dailies including
The
Wall Street Journal
and Town and Country. Diane has launched
some of Boston's trendiest eateries including Mantra, Saint
and OM, 'brand-boosting' star chefs such as
Todd English,
Thomas John, Rene Michelena, Rachel Klein, Leslie Durso
and Anthony Caturano.
Diane's track record for publicity,
edgy campaigns and powerful launches has produced a
continuous demand for her vision and creative capacity from
clients like
HBO, who retained Diane to premiere its
legendary hits
Sex and the City and Entourage. She has
represented and consulted for scores of regional, national and
international clients including,
HBO, BBC America,
Entercom, XAR International, IdentityTruth.com, PhotOral,

fundraising galas, most notably
Beantown for the Big Apple, a
post September 11th fundraiser for 1000 donors at
The Wang-
Citi Center For The Performing Arts
. A Boston native of
Greek heritage, Diane received her education from Boston
Latin School and Boston University. She served as an
Advisory Board member to the Metropolitans - a social
fundraising arm of The Wang Center for the Performing Arts
- which she led from 1994 to 1998.  Her devotion to children's
charities was reflective in her tireless fundraising for The
Wang's
Young at Arts programs and her creation of Midnight
Santa
, a non-profit she founded in 1993 to adopt 100 inner-
city families annually on Christmas Eve - delivering toys,
clothing, bedding, computers and other gifts, typically out of
reach.  She is also an unabashed women's rights advocate.  
During the 2008 presidential election, Diane led and branded
a multimedia women's movement becoming an outspoken
force against sexism in the media and corrupt election
practices, garnering dozens of on-air and print interviews
around the world.  As co-creator of the women's political
blog
hireheels.com, she dishes on political issues affecting
women and attempts to rebrand feminism as
sexy. Diane
recently co-launched a patriotic jewelry line Havenglam
(worn by Jennifer Hudson and Brooke Burke) with designer
Fatima Freitas; their tagline:
America Never Goes Out Of Style.
Last year she created
Brand It Over or bio, a virtual brand
agency that trims traditional agency fat and serves up social
fusion, a blend of traditional PR, Social Media and Branding.
Classically trained—socially brained, Diane Mantouvalos
continues her own brand evolution by delivering clients of-
the-moment Brand Positioning across Social Media platforms.

"Diane Mantouvalos is Boston-born and bred, and she remembers when the
Combat Zone cast its gritty shadow on Downtown Crossing. "My father used to
cover my eyes when we walked around here," she says. But the peep shows and sex
shops are mostly gone, leaving a mix of historic and hip spots. These days,
Mantouvalos has her own public relations agency, and is credited with reviving the
term "Ladder District" to designate an area that runs between Washington and
Tremont streets. "In the early part of the century, street planners referred to this
area as the `ladder district' because of the short, narrow streets - the rungs - held
together by the two long streets, the rails," says Mantouvalos. ..."
