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 knowledgeable, community oriented, and approachable. We bring web page design 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 & CEO

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 (Rebuild Upstate), is passionately involved in the Greenville community, and has earned honors as the SBA’s 2013 S.C. Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Greenville Chamber’s 2014 Young Professional of the Year (not to mention a husband and father of two!)

Rachel Testa

Marketing Director

Using her background in marketing management, Rachel Testa is all about sharing her enthusiasm for Engenius. As Marketing Director, she makes valuable connections with Greenville community members, organizations, and businesses to show them all Engenius has to offer. Rachel joins us after living in Texas, where the guacamole is always followed by exclamation points. She is certain that finding good guac in Greenville won’t be a problem, and will be making the effort (and lunch meetings) accordingly to find the perfect one.

Anna Beam

Executive Assistant

Anna Beam uses her stellar organizational skills to support Chris as his Executive Assistant. In addition to fulfilling this role with flare, Anna also occasionally puts on the hat of office manager, HR representative, accountant, and unofficial office counselor. With a background in client communication and administration, she likes her space organized and her to-do lists color coded. Anna is married to Justin (Beam, not Timberlake, though she’s a big fan of both) and adds to the office’s many dog-lovers with a pooch of her own, named Maia.

TJ Deluccia

Production Manager

TJ Deluccia uses his multifaceted ad agency background to lead our award winning production department. As Production Manager, he makes mince meat of deadlines and seeks innovative ways to produce work that fosters creativity while maximizing efficiency. On top of all that, he maintains clear and consistent communication with our clients to keep projects running smoothly. TJ is a proud Clemson grad who you can find listening to Mumford & Sons and eating pizza at any Clemson home game (Go Tigers!). A self-proclaimed “hipster”, TJ frequents shoe stores and loves to spin the disc at local disc golf courses.

Susan Lesser

Project & Support Manager

As the liaison between Engenius’ clients and our production team, Susan Lesser keeps all website projects moving forward and looks after our clients support needs long term. Not only does she address pressing issues, but she also manages analytics and reporting to monitor the health of your website. Susan is passionate about providing exceptional client experiences—and that is exactly what she does. She is a graduate of Carson-Newman University (Go Eagles!), serves as the secretary for the International Ballet Board of Directors, and is seen more often than not with a cup of coffee in her hand.

Rachel Cantrell

Account Executive

We are thrilled to have Rachel Cantrell on board as our Account Executive. Rachel holds a degree in marketing from Anderson University and brings serious organizational skills and business growth knowledge to our team. She focuses on our clients goals, objectives and how to get the most out of their digital marketing strategy. Rachel’s favorite snack is original Goldfish crackers and in her free time, she enjoys relaxing, shopping and learning about the latest trends. Rachel also attends NewSpring church at the Spartanburg Campus.

Ellison Manley

Web Designer

Ellison Manley -no relation to Chris— is our primary web page designer, creating beautiful, functional websites. Once the website’s framework has been decided and content has been written, our clients website falls into Ellison’s capable hands, where it is brought to life in stunning color and user-friendly functionality. You can see examples of Ellison’s handiwork here. Ellison is a proud Presbyterian College graduate and Engenius’s first fanatical Gamecock fan. She volunteers with the Albino Skunkfest, enjoys live music, and loves spending time in downtown Greenville.

Brent Alexander

WordPress Developer

As our WordPress Developer, Brent Alexander takes a hands-on approach with many Engenius projects, through which his design skills and creativity shine. A graduate of North Greenville University, he has a special place in his heart for Batman and the Atlanta Braves. He enjoys rockin’ out to some Death Cab for Cutie and snacking on dark chocolate with sea salt, peppermint, or chili pepper. But if he wants a full meal, it’s either Thai or Japanese cuisine that he’s reaching for.

Lindsey Holzberger

Web Copywriter

Our resident copywriter, Lindsey Holzberger, brings a spicy-sweet blend of content strategy and creativity to the table. Lindsey’s favorite thing about writing is using any and every internet platform to effectively communicate how awesome Engenius clients are to the Greenville community and beyond. Doing this while sipping on espresso or munching on popcorn is a double win. When she’s not working, you can find Lindsey spending time with her husband and dog, scoring on the ultimate frisbee field, or scouring the aisles of home depot for home project supplies.

Cody Edgar

Project Coordinator

A graduate of Furman University, Cody Edgar brings his communications experience to the table as our Premium Services Project Coordinator. Whether it’s SEO, SEM, Content Marketing, or Social Media Management, Cody translates your vision to create content and contribute to the overall project success. When he’s not churning out killer premium services ideas, you can find Cody listening to Punch Brothers or playing video games (Pokemon is his favorite).

Brooks Manley

Production Assistant

A recent graduate of Clemson University, Brooks Manley brings a little bit of everything to the Engenius table as our Production Assistant. Brooks wears a lot of hats, assisting with content marketing, SEO, SEM, and client support. When not providing superb assistance to our production team, Brooks is out playing volleyball or working his way to the front of a concert. Taco Tuesdays are the way to his heart.
Jobs @ Engenius

Current Opening: Marketing Specialist

Engenius is seeking a highly motivated Marketing Specialist to join its culture-rich team in downtown Greenville, SC. Marketing Specialist is a bit of a vague title, so let us explain.This position has primarily sales responsibilities. However, we do sales a little differently, so it just doesn’t seem appropriate to put sales in the title. Our Marketing Specialist works with companies who need to grow their inbound leads, sales, and reputation to determine: 1) if we’re a good fit to work together – and 2) what services Engenius offers that could best help them accomplish their goals. If those things all come together, then great! We’ve just formed a great partnership that will last for years to come. If it doesn’t fit? No hard feelings – it just wasn’t a partnership that was meant to be, but we’re happy to refer them to someone who might be able to help.

We do set challenging goals and create targets for each team member to work toward. That said, we are a values-driven company and would never let hitting a goal also compromise our values. We care about doing business the right way. Having a Marketing Specialist with some background in marketing is helpful, as well as a high desire to learn more about digital marketing and how it can help move our clients forward in their goals. It’s important to have a personality that lends itself to talking with lots of new people and forming professional relationships with them. Additionally, the person we are seeking has to be a team player, and most importantly really love Engenius and the culture we’ve created here.

If this is the role for you, then let us know! We’d love to consider you to join our team. Apply now to get the conversation started.
