Dave Arland

President

 

With more than 20 years experience in the consumer electronics industry, Dave Arland is respected by both editors and listeners as a knowledgeable resource.

 

A native Hoosier, Dave graduated from Butler University in 1985 with a degree in Radio & Television. He spent three years on-air at WIBC and WIRE Radio before being named Press Secretary to four-term Indianapolis Mayor Bill Hudnut. After a wealth of city government and national association experience, Dave joined Thomson/RCA in 1991.

 

At Thomson, Dave moved up through the ranks to be named Vice President of Global Consumer Marketing. He led the public relations efforts to introduce mp3 music players, high-definition TV, and e-book readers to consumers throughout the U.S. and Europe. He also served as the company’s voice in Washington, testifying twice before Congress and helping staff of the Federal Communications Commission understand complex digital technology developments.

 

In 2008, he started Arland Communications and has helped consumer companies, broadcasters, and trade associations reach new audiences with the help of a dedicated team and key partners.

 

His frequent “Dave The Gadget Guy” appearances on WIBC FM 93.1 in Indianapolis help listeners decode the alphabet soup of tech industry changes.

 

Dave volunteers as Master Steward educator for Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, is a passionate STAR TREK fan, and is on the board of WFYI Public TV. He is married with one daughter. Dave and his wife are musicians at Holy Spirit Catholic Church near Indianapolis.

Joshua Phelps

Creative Director

Joshua Phelps is a creative with a business mindset. He uses his talent and passion for the creative process to make obscure concepts into powerful stories. With a degree from Butler University’s Lacy School of Business, Joshua guides the strategic direction of his work to achieve his client’s business goals, evidenced by his Telly awards as both a Producer and Editor.

 

In his work as Creative Director at Arland Communications, Joshua has worked as a Director, Producer, Editor, and DP across the United States and internationally in Europe and Asia. His projects range from broadcast TV commercials to corporate content for Fortune 500 companies and include hundreds of interviews with high profile individuals.

 

Joshua is constantly looking to discover new challenges in his work and learn new skills. Recently, Joshua earned his license as an sUAS Pilot and has become adept at aerial cinematography.

 

As an undergraduate, Joshua started his own freelance design business, which was later acquired by Arland Communications when he joined the team in 2013.

 

In his free time Joshua travels the world and tries lots of new hobbies – always in search of adventure and new projects to tackle. He loves the ideas and inspiration that come from traveling and hearing people’s stories and perspectives along the way. Joshua tackles every new adventure – at work or at play – with his wife Maggie, his “badass” partner-in-crime.
