Meet our Team
The best part about creating Cannon Green has been gathering our uncommonly talented team. And the best part (still) is that we get to work together.
Dean Porter Andrews and Lynn Easton
As the CEO and co-founder of Easton Porter Group, Dean Andrews knows the nitty-gritty of five-star hospitality as well as anyone. Before launching EPG, Andrews served as senior operating officer for Orient-Express Hotels, Ltd., overseeing some of the world’s most exclusive properties. He’s acquired, repositioned and operated resorts, small and large luxury hotels and acclaimed restaurants across the globe, helping elevate the standards of hospitality excellence worldwide. Today he loves nothing more than honing the finer points of EPG’s boutique properties, because that’s what three decades in the hospitality industry has taught him: every detail counts.
As creative director and co-founder of Easton Porter Group, Lynn Easton brings her exceptional design eye and event expertise to complement Dean’s business acumen. All EPG properties bear her signature style imprint. As founder of Easton Events, a leading event planning and design company, Lynn’s classic taste and bespoke events and weddings have earned her a devoted following as well as a nod as one of Vogues’ Top 5 Event Planners. Her work has been widely published including Martha Stewart, Town & Country, The Knot, Southern Weddings and Southern Living Weddings.
