A refreshing
web experience.

We take a down-to-earth approach and see every relationship as a partnership. That means that we succeed only when you succeed.

Our team is conversant, community oriented, and approachable. We bring what is often reserved for five or six-figure budgets to growing businesses and nonprofits.

Our Approach


Understanding your customers is what we do best.

At Engenius, we put ourselves in the shoes of your customer. We focus on the end user to learn what they value most. Then, we measure results and adjust our tactics to ensure they find what they need.

The Team

Chris Manley

Co-founder & Managing Partner

Chris Manley is our co-founder, team leader, and chief strategist with fifteen years experience in marketing communications. A native of the Upstate, he also leads a nonprofit (ReWiGo), is passionately involved in the Greenville community, and is the SBA’s 2013 S.C. Young Entrepreneur of the Year (not to mention, a husband and father of two!)

Chase Finch

Co-founder & Creative Director

Chase Finch is our co-founder, chief programmer, and Creative Director. He’s a Clemson University grad, and likes simplifying and breaking things down into their true parts. Chase loves traveling with his lovely wife Ashleigh, meeting new people, surfing, playing music, and talking shop. He has two big dogs and boasts a 1467 rating from the US Chess Federation.

Ellison Manley

Project Manager

Ellison Chase Manley (seriously) is related to neither Chris nor Chase. More importantly, having organized volunteers around the world with Youth Conference Ministries, she’s here to keep our production on track. Ellison is a proud Presbyterian College graduate and Engenius’s first fanatical Gamecock fan (which can get uncomfortable.) She volunteers with the Albino Skunkfest, enjoys live music, and loves how awesome Greenville’s downtown has become after spending over a decade away from Greenville.

Susan Lesser

Support Specialist

Susan Lesser keeps our whole team running and can multi-task with the best of them. She is a graduate of Carson-Newman College (Go Eagles!) and has experience in both Customer Service and Client Management. Besides being our support specialist, she wears many different hats at Engenius. Susan is a classically trained ballerina, volunteers in her church’s children and youth ministry’s and is seen more often than not with a cup of coffee in her hand.


Catie Buckingham

Project and Account Manager

Catie Buckingham is our project and account manager, as well as our resident gardener. Her role is to keep all of our projects on track and to manage all of the details. Catie’s background in social work and client care help her understand our clients’ needs, ensure goals are met, and guide projects to success. She is a graduate of Winthrop University, is active in her church, and volunteers with the American Heart & Stroke Association.


David Dannelly

Client Engagement Specialist

Keeping our clients at highest priority and ensuring they are well served is what David Dannelly, Client Engagement Specialist, does best. He works with new clients to identify their goals and craft a plan to accomplish them. David is a proud graduate of Clemson University (twice), was a member of the Men’s Golf Team, and served as President of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. He is the self-proclaimed office ping-pong champion.

Catherine Ryan

Content Strategist

Catherine Ryan brings a wealth of experience in marketing and communications to our team, having served in management positions with several nonprofits domestically and internationally. After becoming a Clemson grad, she was a resident of Australia (with her Aussie husband) for five years where she lived by the ocean, travelled, and managed communications for a global international development organization. She and her husband returned to South Carolina in 2012, and now make Greenville their home alongside Baxter their laborador.
