Dave Fiore
Founder and Chief Executive Officer

 

Dave Fiore Headshot croppedDave Fiore’s first byline came in the seventh grade when his English teacher surprised him by publishing his book report on “The Call of the Wild” in the school paper. A love of writing was born that year, as was an attachment to light blue corduroy and earth shoes. With his keen fashion sense intact, Dave has merged his 25 years’ experience as a professional writer, editor and accredited public relations professional into the foundation of a content marketing firm that has found a significant niche in the vast world of marketing options.

With a career focused squarely on the creation of great content, Dave learned about writing on a deadline as a marketing writer at the Tallahassee Democrat; learned to value the discipline as well as the art of good writing as editor of Tallahassee Magazine and learned the power of helping clients tell their story as a senior account manager with RB Oppenheim Associates, an award-winning integrated marketing firm.

As chief content officer at Fiore Communications, Dave serves as the company’s primary writer and gatekeeper for all content created by the firm. As the owner, he also serves as chief marketing strategist, client liaison and team motivator.

Dave earned a bachelor’s degree in public relations from Florida State University, where he met his wife, Robyn, in the Marching Chiefs. They have been married more than 29 years and have six wonderful children.

Domonique Davis
Content Writer/Editor

 

Domonique Davis has always loved entertaining others with her stories. Growing up, even her Christmas lists came complete with imaginative tales highlighting the importance of each item.

Domonique graduated from Florida A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in public relations. She went on to work in the university’s Office of Communications, where she wrote newsletter and magazine articles for the school’s various publications and told exciting 140-character stories as the social media manager.

As a member of the Fiore Communications team, Domonique’s narrative flare will come in handy when writing and editing content for clients.

In her free time, Domonique enjoys guessing the endings to movies and singing—usually off key—for her dog’s enjoyment.

Mandy Schnittker
Project Manager

 

Mandy Schnittker is a lover of the written word, as well as a serial list maker and self-proclaimed information sponge. She loves the teamwork and collaborative strategizing that comes with being part of the Fiore Communications crew. 

Mandy’s background includes work in television, public relations, event planning and community relations – for local small business, major corporations (hint: if she’s drinking soda, she will only drink Coca-Cola products), and numerous charitable events and causes benefiting her two children. 

Mandy has enjoyed being part of the Tallahassee community for nearly 20 years. You could say she was wooed by the city’s live oaks and canopy roads, the Seminole spirit – and, of course, her husband Dennis.

Rachel Mulcahy
Content Marketing Intern

 

Rachel is a junior at Florida State University, where she majors in Digital Media Production with a minor in Film Studies. Rachel is a member of Phi Mu sorority, and her various roles within the organization have allowed her communications skills to shine. While serving as T-shirt Chair, Rachel was introduced to graphic design. But, her role in the video committee is where her real talents lie. She is also a part of Burning Tree Magazine where she tells the stories of important events or landmarks around Tallahassee through photos.  

Rachel’s passion for communications came at a young age.  One day, her dad asked her “if you like TV so much why don’t you become one,” and Rachel has been exploring the entire field of media and communications ever since. As someone who is defiant against change, the constantly evolving media world is intriguing.

In addition to interning at Fiore Communications, Rachel also volunteers at WFSU as a production assistant.  At the end of the day, she unwinds with classic films picking apart the famous one-liners (“You talking to me?”) and the breathtaking production.
