Manager of Marketing, Communications and Outreach

Award-winning television writer-producer and marketer Daryl Rowland comes to the Civic Commons by way of Hollywood Boulevard and Madison Avenue. Having grown tired of our nation’s side coasts, he now resides on our glorious North Coast -- where his children enjoy a school with no published policy on gang colors. Over the years he has written television scripts for Ellen Degeneres, Dave Chappelle, Helen Hunt and many other notables, as well promoting such brands as Black & Decker and McDonald's Restaurants. He joins Civic Commons to communicate its important mission to the Northeast Ohio, to help develop innovative ways accelerate regional development, and to eat way more beef than he ever thought possible.
