DGR Communications is owned and operated by David & Ginnie Rowe; a husband and wife team with over 45 years combined experience in advertising, marketing and website design agencies. That’s what you get when you hire us – we use our extensive brand marketing experience to help business owners transform their businesses into Brands. We help small businesses and non-profit organizations improve their online communications with a variety of services that include website design, content writing & copywriting, and email marketing.
Choose to work with us and you’ll deal with a small business with big business experience. We have worked for prestigious brand building agencies like McCann Erickson and Carlson Marketing Group; we have worked on big brands like Guinness, Honda, and Hyundai to name a few. Work with us and we will apply our big brand experience to your business. What’s more – choose to work with us, and you’ll work with us on your project. We don’t hand off our website jobs to third party freelancers or junior employees.
We came to the US from England in 2006. Nearly everyone we meet asks ‘Why Arizona?’ ‘How do you cope with the heat in the summer?’ is a question that we’re often asked, even 12+ years on. We came to the US for a better quality of life, to enjoy some sunshine (a rare commodity in England) and to be our own masters! Consequently our approach is professional, yet relaxed. If we think we can help your business, we will; if we don’t think we can make a difference then we will tell you up front. No hard feelings! If you are looking for the cheapest quote, it’s likely not us. Our clients value our experience, the high quality service we provide, and the benefits that experience brings to their business. Our aim is to develop relationships that last, and not to just make a quick buck. We don’t make promises we can’t keep.

I was born in Virginia, but raised in Argentina before I moved to the UK at the age of 18. Lucky to have been brought up in a bilingual home, I’m fluent in Spanish and English. I worked in a number of marketing agencies before we moved to Arizona. My last role was Client Services Account Director for Carlson Marketing, a digital marketing agency, in Bristol, England.
I have experience in both online and offline marketing, but my specialist knowledge and understanding of Digital Strategy and the role it can play in a brand’s development is my strength. My role at Carlson routinely took me to Europe and the US to train others in website content management systems, which was an aspect of the job that I really enjoyed.
I spent six years on the Board of Directors, including two years as Board President, for Singleton Moms, a local non-profit organisation that raises funds for single parents with cancer in the Phoenix area. While no longer on the Board, I still volunteer my time.
I love reading, getting out and about in this beautiful state and spending warm evenings outside, with maybe a glass of wine!
Born and raised in England, I spent my career working for a number of prestigious UK agencies. Before we moved to Arizona in 2006, my last position was Head of Brand Response for McCann Erickson in Bristol, England. My broad marketing experience, combined with a marketing focused Bachelor’s Degree (and several vocational qualifications) have helped me develop a great understanding of what makes a brand work.
To support 25 years of copywriting experience, I gained a Diploma from the Institute of Copywriting in 2005. Whether writing optimized web copy or any form of marketing collateral material, I always try to put myself in the mind of the target audience – ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What would I want this piece to say to me?’ are two questions I always ask myself at the beginning of a project.
I love sport – mainly watching these days as my knees and back are shot from 30 years of playing soccer and rugby. I also enjoy traveling, hiking in the striking Arizona landscape with our rescue German Shepherd dog ‘Maverick’, and spending quality time with friends – often with a cold beer in hand and my feet in the pool!
