History

DXC was born from a vision to elevate the role of design in business leadership. Founded in 2022 by Gordon Ching, a San Francisco based design leader and graduate from the Savannah School of Art and Design, DXC sprouted from a thesis that delved deep into the effectiveness of Chief Design Officers and design executives. What began as an academic pursuit rapidly evolved into a vibrant dinner club and design executive community. Under Gordon's leadership, DXC has grown significantly into a trusted brand, attracting key figures of the corporate design leadership world.

Today, DXC boasts a membership of senior executives from global multinational corporations and high-growth tech startups alike, including industry titans like Adobe, Boeing, Capital One, CNN, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, and Warner Music Group. Our members benefit from a rich knowledge base and network designed to bolster their leadership in navigating the highest levels of business and design leadership.
