Our story. Our vision.

After years of working together in digital media, Sean Griffey, Ryan Willumson and Eli Dickinson began to notice a consistent trend. They saw that, while mobile devices were changing the way people worked and consumed information, traditional business media content models, user interfaces and marketing programs were slow to adapt.

In 2012, they launched Industry Dive to meet the needs of busy industry executives: providing industry news and insights to help them do their jobs. The company originally set up shop in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC and launched in our first five industries: Construction, Education, Marketing, Utility and Waste.

We live our values.

We have six core values that guide our work as a company. These values are a critical foundation of our culture and how we interact with each other and the world.

  1. Serve the reader. Serve the client.

  2. Earn it.

    Feed your curiosity.

    “In 2016, as I was covering the waste industry, I became interested in the growing trend to implement initiatives that promoted sustainability and resilience in the public and private sectors. That curiosity in the space led to a new publication idea that I pitched to the founders, and a few months later we launched what is now Smart Cities Dive.

    I had only been working here for about 18 months at the time, but the company was still willing to take a chance on a pitch that was driven by curiosity, and I'm so grateful for the opportunities that have followed because of that."

    Kristin Musulin, Senior Editor

  4. Solve problems.

  5. Experiment. Learn. Repeat.

    Bring your personality.

    “This is a theme I consistently see at this company. Our employees have so many personalities and passions, and you see those come out in all kinds of ways, book clubs, fantasy sports, intramural sports, BINGO, slack channels, brown bags, and so much more. Being yourself isn't hard here.”

    Brian Tucker, Graphic Designer

We love to give back.

We donate to two charities each quarter. Employees present organizations they believe the company should support, and the whole staff votes on the recipients.
