Senior Manager, Design and Production
Duane provides instrumental expertise to content management, marketing and media relations as well as leading Kaiser & Partners’ visual communications team. He currently plays an integral role within the Marketing Communications department.
Prior to joining K&P, Duane worked as a content writer with We Are Social where he led the conception, execution and management of multiple consumer brands. In under a year, thanks to his work, those brands exceeded all projected growth and engagement KPIs across various social media platforms.
Duane has also worked as a Community Manager with Labatt Breweries’ in-house creative agency where he oversaw the development of Budweiser Canada’s social media channels. It was there that he spearheaded the creation of the Canadian Porter-Brown society, an employee resource group for black teammates and people of colour within the organization – his biggest career achievement to date.
Duane graduated from Centennial College’s post-graduate sports journalism program which provided him the opportunity to intern with The Sports Network (TSN). He turned that internship into a story editor role and continued to climb the ranks at TSN, becoming a digital content editor and producer within four years.
Duane also holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Ryerson University with a major in Law and Business.
