DIANA MARTINEZ, 45 *
2005 Single
President of The Second City // Lives in Glen Ellyn

Three years ago, Martinez left her position as executive director of Paramount Theatre in Aurora, and in 2009, she became president of The Second City. Recently, she’s been focusing her efforts on building a new Second City theatre in Old Town and working with a local nonprofit to direct Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics, a traveling performance that uses musical theatre to address issues facing today’s teens.

What’s it like working at Second City? “The last two years of my life have been very career focused. When I started here [in September 2009], they were planning the big 50th-anniversary events. I was a big part of that, and that took up a lot of time.”

Have you been seeing anyone lately? “No, but I am open to a relationship. I did just buy a new puppy [a West Highland terrier].”

What’s his name? “His name is Junior, and he has a lot of attitude.” —M.E.
