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.

Meet the rest of our team

A huge fan of the outdoors and Seattle sports, Johnathn brings his enthusiasm to clients and team members alike as a Wheelhouse DMG Client Experience Manager.

Anthony is our Director of Analytics. When he’s not helping clients with conversion rate optimization, he can be found strumming a guitar, composing music, and spending time with his partner, Nicole.

Dallas is a Washington native and Paid Search Analyst. He is also a big fan of the values-based culture at Wheelhouse DMG and appreciates the genuine positivity that permeates the office, creating not only fantastic work for the clients but fantastic relationships, as well.

Natalie is a Front-End Engineer supporting WordPress development projects and Digital Strategy initiatives.

Liz is the Director of Client Experience at Wheelhouse DMG, coordinating the workflows between the Digital Strategy, Analytics, and Engineering practices, so that things run smoothly. When she’s not in the office, she’s probably training for another marathon or paddle-boarding with her dog.

Originally from Pittsburgh, Michelle is one of our Digital Advertising Analysts in the Richmond, VA office. Michelle comes from a traditional advertising agency so enjoys finding new creative ways to solve client problems. You’re likely to find her kayaking the James River or going to see live music.

Aditya is equal parts math geek and avid rock climber. Both of these passions led him to Seattle as a Data Scientist.

Erika is a Client Experience Manager. A NW native, she loves to ski, read, and run in between chauffeuring her three kids (and the family dog) to more activities than she cares to think about. She also loves Prosecco and Oreos, but not together.
