DEANENE CATANI

Vice President of Communications + Marketing

PLEASE CONTACT ME WHEN:

Primarily, I’m contacted for use of our logos, to get further details on ETF-related stories, or for a statement on behalf of ETF. If you have a philanthropic story that you’d like for us to share, please contact me!

ON A TYPICAL WORKDAY I’LL BE:

Publishing stories related to East Tennessee and ETF in purposeful ways is what you’ll typically find me doing. To stay current, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn or update your contact information at etf.org. The truth is most days aren’t typical, and I find that challenging, humbling, and rewarding.

I CHOSE THIS WORK BECAUSE:

The work of the Foundation matches my personal mission of creating opportunities for others to live their best life.

MORE ABOUT ME: 

Working for ETF allows me to apply what I’ve learned throughout my career in communications, marketing, and fundraising. I’ve worked with US Cellular, Knoxville News Sentinel, News Sentinel Charities, University of Tennessee Medical Center, and the Diocese of Knoxville.

I am a past-president of the American Marketing Association, Knoxville Chapter and a graduate of the 2010 Class of Leadership Knoxville.

I was born and raised in rural East Knox County near Strawberry Plains and graduated from Carson Newman University in Jefferson County with a B.S. in Business and Marketing.
