Harrison Duke

Creative Director

Location: Columbia

I am originally from Savannah, Georgia but have lived in Columbia since High School. I started at Southern Way Catering 20 years ago as a part-time employee bartending and working events. I have been the Creative Designer here for 15 years.

I love the fast-paced environment this industry offers and knowing that I am an important part of making our client’s events special and memorable. My job is to take a client’s vision and bring it to life. Putting together the visual aspect is the best part of what I do. Because of this, I’d have to say themed events are my favorite!

I get to work with such a talented group of people who inspire me on a daily basis. Southern Way’s attention to detail and the pride we put into all events, no matter how big or small, is what makes this company so successful. We are such a versatile company! I have had the opportunity to cater two different Governor Inaugurations and helped us receive the University of South Carolina athletic department contract. I am a huge college football fan, so I loved being a part of that!

I normally spend my time watching movies and spending time with my dogs, Tucker and Taffy!
