Diane Trim

Co-Founder & Chief Operations Officer

I have three decades of professional writing and editing experience in journalism, technical writing, grant/proposal writing and content creation. I have taught journalism, editing, interviewing and writing at the high school and collegiate levels and I take the bi-weekly AP Stylebook quiz for fun. You’ll find the latest Chicago Manual of Style and AP Stylebooks on my bookshelf, next to a worn copy of Strunk & White and the complete works of Roy Peter Clark. As a co-founder of Iris Content, I am dedicated to providing our clients with outstanding, original content that meets and exceeds our clients’ expectations.

Alecs Ianko

Co-Founder & Chief Business Officer

Professionally, I have been writing for the past 12 years. I started as a newsroom editor and basically went through all the writing areas: from politics to industry, from lifestyle to social. Working for several high-profile U.S.-based companies has taught me more than writing for the web and adapting my style to various client needs, it has taught me how to find out what people want even without them expressing their needs in too many words. I am using this skill now for the agency we co-founded, and hope to make all of our clients happy in the process.

Annie Ianko

Co-Founder & Chief Content Officer

I have over 19 years of experience. I’d like to consider myself a Jane-of-all-trades when it comes to content: I have covered everything: I have been a TV news editor-in-chief, a magazine chief editor, an online writer and content manager. For Iris Content I wear the hats of SEO, content marketing, content sales rep, editor and writer. I would like to believe that our still new but very successful enterprise was created with a lot of good intentions and a huge heart, with a special dedication to clients who need help and a good content friend.
