Dianne Hernandez, Global Card Program Manager, Transocean Inc.

Featured Member for September 2020

Dianne joined Transocean in March 2010 and is responsible for their Global Card Program which consists of Purchasing Cards, Travel Cards, CTA and Virtual programs. In this role, she manages the strategic design and direction of the program along with all aspects of card and relationship management. Based in Houston, Texas, she has leveraged her 15 years of card experience to expand their card program globally while streamlining processes, increasing operational efficiencies, controls and gaining visibility into spend.

What are you passionate about with your job?

I love being able to work with others. This position allows me to interact with employees from different disciplines across the enterprise and to help and empower others to achieve common goals. I am passionate about the success of our Global Card program ensuring that we have the right programs in place with proper controls.

What are you most proud of about your job?

Process efficiencies! I am all about streamlining and automation. Since growing our program from a U.S. only program to a global program, and there was a need to address the reconciliation process as it was manually intensive. We were able to automate the back-end reconciliation which reduced effort and increased efficiencies and controls surrounding the process. We also implemented automated AI for auditing card transactions which has allowed us to increase our audits to 100 percent and manage only the exceptions and false-positives. I am so pleased that my contributions over the years have made such a positive impact to our program and the company.

Dianne's current challenge:

While there may not be any current challenges, I am always looking for ways to improve and build on what we have in order to work more efficiently and bring value to the program. This month, we will begin transitioning our expense management tool from Concur to Workday, so I am unsure what challenges that may bring, but I know it will be a busy few months!

What are you passionate about outside of work?

I love reading and going to the beach. But what I love the most is being with familyhaving fun together and creating great memories!

Fun fact: 

I played on co-ed and women’s softball teams from the time was 15 until I was 40ish when I had to hang up my cleats due to a back injury. One of my favorite memories was that one year, my husband, my 16-year-old daughter and I played on the same co-ed team. It was such a super-exciting season and we had so much fun.

If you could visit anywhere in the world you've never been, where would you go and why?

That is really hard as there are so many beautiful and interesting places I have not been to. But I would love to travel to an exotic beach, sit in the sun, relax and just listen to the waves.
