About Connor Duszynski, President & CEO of Cardinal Marketing & Design, LLC

Connor Duszynski has always had a passion for supporting local. Growing up in Virginia's Hunt Country, Connor's love of the regional equestrian culture, premier wineries and eateries, and local conservation efforts fostered a desire to promote all the good he sees in his community. From writing for local publications to capturing the busy polo and steeplechasing seasons, he believes in taking as many opportunities as possible to engage with his audience in meaningful ways.

Founding Cardinal Marketing & Design, LLC in 2021 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a great deal of uncertainty as to what the future of marketing (and the business world at-large) would look like. However, he knew one thing for certain: the integration of business and technology would never slow down. 

Capitalizing on the boom of social media and the prominence of new AI softwares, Connor established Cardinal to provide elevated marketing to the community and industries he loves. After years of experience working with local publications and small business owners, he took the skills he learned to take on his first clients. 

Through word-of-mouth and intentional social media and digital marketing outreach, Cardinal's mission soared. Within our first few months of operation, we began collaborating with numerous creatives, business professionals, independent brands, retailers, and other clients across the continental United States. Currently, we represent a network of clients throughout Virginia and Washington, D.C, dedicating our efforts to sharing their missions with the world. 

With full-service marketing offerings, from press to editorial asset creation, ad generation and promotion, and networking events, we pull out all the stops to maximize your marketing efforts.


There truly aren't enough words to describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with so many incredible people, brands, and organizations. So much has changed within the past few years for me and for Cardinal, and I am eternally thankful for the continued support of my community and clients. 

I look forward to sharing the latest updates with you all here and on my additional platforms (as you know I will). As we move through the remainder of 2023, you can expect to see the continued support and promotion of my community, a streamlining of our processes at Cardinal, and increased integration with up-and-coming technologies. From AI softwares to algorithm updates, my job is to keep you in-the-know of the latest digital and social media marketing trends. 

It's my honor to continue growing this agency into 2023 and beyond. This is undoubtedly the greatest accomplishment and pleasure of my professional career.
