CLEVELAND – May 7, 2018 – Dix & Eaton announced today the hiring of three professionals to the firm: Bailey Wells to assistant vice president; Carly Reeves to senior account executive; and Samantha Velotta to assistant account executive.
“We are thrilled to add Bailey, Carly and Sam to our team – each with very diverse skill sets,” said Chas Withers, CEO of Dix & Eaton. “Their breadth of experience, digital intelligence and expertise will help address our clients’ needs in this fast-moving, multi-channel communications and marketing landscape. They each bring a strong blend of strategic and tactical skills, and a creativity in finding solutions to complex, high-stakes issues, on which our firm often works. Two of them are also Cleveland “boomerangs” – professionals who have gained valuable insight in other markets, but are returning home to the vibrancy of Northeast Ohio.”
