Ernie Dimalanta

Founder & CEO

Ernie Dimalanta is founder and CEO of Dimalanta Design Group, as well as creator of Out&Out Marketing®️️. He is passionate about leadership and enjoys studying the art and science of motivation. Inspiring others to achieve to the best of their ability is what motivates Ernie. After realizing that many small- to mid-size businesses face similar marketing challenges – namely, lack of time, knowledge and resources to promote their brand – Ernie developed a philosophy that has become the proprietary Out&Out Marketing®️️ program. If he wasn’t working in the world of marketing, Ernie says he likely would be serving in ministry. Ernie, his family and DDG employees enjoy supporting and volunteering with a variety of nonprofit organizations, including Life Forward Cincinnati.
