My childhood dog was in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
Name: Doug Erwin

How long have you been in Greenville? My entire life except for a few years in Washington, D.C., after college.

Most interesting fact about you: My childhood dog was in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

Your background: I was born and raised in Greenville on the east side of town.

I've always been a big sports guy and played tennis, baseball, soccer and golf growing up.

I attended Clemson and majored in Secondary Education.

I moved to D.C. and lived there for about a year and a half before moving back to Greenville to work in advertising at Erwin Penland, where I worked on a number of accounts including Verizon, Denny's and the Greenville Drive.

From there, I left to help launch Endeavor, a co-working space for creative professionals located downtown. It was amazing to see the transformation of Greenville after being away for only a few years and it's been so cool to work in the heart of downtown for the last few years.

Tagline / Motto: Drink more water.

What is your day-to-day on the job? Building a new organization from scratch means no two days are the same.

I oversee all marketing and branding for the team and represent the ownership group in day-to-day operations as well.

Those dual roles lead to working on projects in all areas of the team, which range from supporting the soccer-side staff to speaking on behalf of the team in the community to even larger initiatives like our long-term stadium project.

Besides residence, where is your favorite Greenville evening hangout? Trying to pick one restaurant is impossible, so I'd say either Brewery 85 or Fire Forge.
