The Dunham Group was founded by Christopher Grabiec and John Janisse in 1995 and has incorporated the contributions of an incredible and stable team over the years. Dunham Web provides strategic marketing direction, web design, graphic design, web video and IT services to local, national and international clients.
Chris’ role these days is to make sure the ‘engines’ run at the Dunham Group as the CEO. A good CEO is not only an organizer but in fact a “servant” to the employees, making certain that their gifts, talents and contributions are recognized and developed as time goes on. This means that the great joy of his life is the whole team with whom he works at Dunham Web and Dunham Connect. They stay on top of (and in fact ahead of) the latest trends and issues in web development and are amazing to work with.
Co-founder of Dunham Web and Connect, John has many outside interests which include biking, running, music, performance, gardening and his Rotary Club. These interests along with his own academic and experiential background form a world-view which enables him to lead the operations at Dunham and help potential clients become our life-long clients. His job is to be sure both staff and clients are very happy in their journey to success. He genuinely cares about our team and our clients and thus creates a very successful environment for us all.
Jason is a McMaster graduate in computer science and is sometimes called the Oracle around the office.

Experience is his greatest teacher, enabling him to successfully weave his talent into his work. Jason can develop incredibly complex back-ends to web sites and at the same time make the user experience very easy.
