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

Laura is Director of Digital Advertising in our Virginia office. She is a Richmond, VA native and Seattle wannabe (she’ll settle for visiting a few times a year). Laura loves keeping up with the latest paid search trends, winery tours, and any activities where she can bring her Golden Retriever, Penny.

Dustin is our Principal Engineer and brings 16 years of full-stack development experience to the team. When not helping engineer solutions for our partners, he enjoys spending time with his family and performing in local theater — a true “acting professional”.

Shawn provides versatile support to both Digital Strategy and Digital Advertising clients. Whether it’s through content creation, technical SEO audits, keyword performance analysis or paid search bid optimization, Shawn seeks to help clients actualize their digital strategies in a way that brings them joy.

Aaron is CEO & Founder, and a broadly accomplished digital marketing professional. He is responsible for vision, strategy and culture. He’s still happily married to that New Zealander he met in Malaysia and they now have two wonderful daughters.

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.

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.

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