Our Purpose & Values

Elevating the lives of people living, traveling and working in the places we serve by engaging our passions for travel, exploring new cultures and doing good.

DCI believes that the work we do every day is making a difference in the lives of those who live in the communities we serve. Our company’s core values as a creative marketing agency guide us in everything that we do today and were born from our founder Ted Levine’s desire to give back more than 60 years ago. We believe DCI’s inclusive and collaborative company culture is the reason we are one of the best companies to work for and have some of the best employees in marketing.
