Scott Merilatt

Director of Digital Strategy

W/ since November 2014
Pronouns: He/him

Professional Path

Scott is the Director of Digital Strategy at Wheelhouse DMG. He started with the company in 2014 as a content writer and now manages the Digital Strategy team — the “engine room” of the SEO practice, responsible for delivering ongoing SEO work, audits, content gap analysis, outreach, content creation, and more. Scott also provides direct strategic recommendations to organizations with multiple sites in their online ecosystem. Before Wheelhouse, Scott worked as a content specialist and digital marketer at a variety of Seattle-area tech companies, including Amazon, Cobalt, and Marchex.

Personal Passions

Scott was born and raised in the Seattle area and lives in Ballard with his wife and son. His stereotypical interests include coffee (to a fault), writing, reading, baseball, trees, and beer. But he also has a deep appreciation for classical music, British comedy, Eritrean cuisine, and his 40-minute walks to work every morning.
