Chief Marketing Officer & Creative Director



Ian C. Dunne

Chief Marketing Officer & Creative Director

I believe every person, place, and organization has a story worth sharing. My passion comes from crafting that story and making it come to life.

I’m a homeowner in downtown Raleigh where I live with my wife, Eleni, and our son, Declan, plus our Goldadoor pup, Sophie. I grew up in Charlotte, but having been in Raleigh for 17+ years I now consider myself a true Triangle native. I believe in what this great city and region have to offer anyone and everyone. This is a place where I have earned my education, made lifelong friends, found the love of my life, grown professionally, became a homeowner, and started a family – you can have it all in Raleigh, y’all.

A graduate of NC State University, I am a diehard Pack fan. Having been raised in the Queen City, I’m hoping for that first Super Bowl as a Carolina Panthers fan (#KeepPounding). Either way, my sports teams keep me stressed because I want a championship in something already.
